We like to move it, move it

moving
 

At the end of May, Firefall Pro moved from our Chelsea office to 88 Pine, nestled on the East River waterfront in the southern tip of Manhattan. It was an arduous task to relocate all the Nerf guns, alcohol, and computers (including a collection of ancient Apple products that would have made Steve Jobs jealous), but we pulled through somehow. Even the severe rain and biblical flooding could not stop us from reaching our destination!

moving company
 

The new location offers a bevy of modern conveniences such as “personal space,” “windows,” and “air conditioning.” Another advantage is our increased available personnel capacitythe days of playing musical chairs in a small enclosed room are finally over!

unpack cats
 

We will miss many things about the Chelsea neighborhood and the building, such as eating at Johnny’s Luncheonette and occasionally being trapped in the old office elevators; however, the breathtaking views and unlimited free drinks will help us through this tough transitory period.

Things are heating up!

Vine Videos Set a World Record

Mashable and RED recently teamed up in a world-wide initiative to bring awareness to the fight against AIDS by setting the first-ever Vine world record. All of the entries are accessible via VineViewer, the ultimate search tool for vines. VineViewer is the easiest way to search for Vines, and the Red World Record theme makes us love it that much more!

Users from all over the world submitted Vine videos with the hashtag #REDworldrecord of themselves wearing something red, showing something red, or even speaking out for the cause, e.g. “Together we can fight AIDS!”

Over the course of 24 hours, Vine videos were tallied up using RecordSetter and the world record was set for the most Vine videos submitted for a social cause. Hooray, internet friends — you (we) did it!

Check out more results of these initiatives at VineViewer and let us know which is your favorite Red World Record Vine! Here’s our favorite:

Creep on Vine with vineviewer.co

Firefall Pro and SS+K got together to make vineviewer.co and we are pretty pumped about it! You’ve heard of vine, right? It’s the newest app to share 6 second videos and now you can use vineviewer.co to search by hashtag and pull up a page of videos to enjoy (or get creeped out by since we are not responsible for whatever crazy things people post). We loaded it with cats to start you off because the internet loves cats and damnit so do we. So check it out! Search the Vine and see what you find. VineViewer-1

The Lights Are Back at Firefall Pro

Greetings from Firefall Pro

Dear Clients and Friends:

We wanted to take a moment and reflect on the events of Hurricane Sandy last week.

We hope everyone is safe and secure throughout the Tri-state area, and our thoughts are with those that continue to be without power and basic necessities, which will be further compounded by the upcoming Nor’easter storm on Wednesday. If there’s anything we can do to be of assistance, call us at 917-464-5231, or E-mail us at info@firefallpro.com. Day or night, it doesn’t matter.

With services restored to our offices this weekend, we began bringing all systems back online. I’m happy to report that our web hosting platform maintained full availability, without interruption. As of today, we’ve resumed normal operations at full capacity, and we’ll be reaching out to all our clients with ongoing projects to make sure that everything’s ok, and to get back in sync. And feel free to let us know how you’re doing, as it’ll help us breathe a little easier, and worry a bit less.

Thank you for your support as we work to get NYC back up and running again.

Always at your service,

The Firefall Pro Team

November 1st, 2012

Open for business, always.

As New Yorkers begin the hard road to recovery, I’m happy to report that our team is safe and secure, and that we’re continuing to assist our clients in any way that we can. As our offices in Manhattan (and everything below 27th street) remain powerless, we’ll continue to be reachable at info@firefallpro.com, or at 917-464-5231.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. More updates to come, here on Firelight.

Camarederie and Wombattery in the Firefall Pro Headquarters

We’ve recently had some inquiries regarding the various departments and staff within the FireFall Pro Headquarters. So, here we are to dispel rumors, and to enlighten those who may be interested in gaining further knowledge about our company.

Our tentative mascot (as of July 17, 2012)

Meet Harry the baby wombat. He’s thoroughly upset when people misspell his name (see: “Hairy”, Hairball”, “Hairywomb”). Don’t make this mistake.

Our PR Department
One may believe that our PR department consists of a handful of people (if you’ve called our office, you may have had the pleasure of speaking to multiple representatives), but in actuality we just hired a voice actor to play the role of three different employees – Scott, Jess, and Lily. Hiring voice actors is advantageous because it reduces the workload of employees and gives the impression that we in fact care enough to have you on hold for 15 minutes while we “forward you to a higher up”.

Our Resources Department
Thanks to our Craigslist solicitors (refer to our Illiteracy Contest Awards), we have a plethora of potential employees we could recruit on our team. Fortunately, we don’t want any of them.

Our S’mores & Liquor Department
Have you ever seen the show “The IT Crowd”? This department is comparable to that show– they hide out in a basement and only ever come out for office parties, i.e. every day after 5 when S’mores and Liquor make an appearance.

This list is already getting too long and bothersome to deal with. Call our Customer Service Department if you want to know more: (917) 464-5231

Until next time, fellow readers!
