Please link to your original Show HN post, and include a short update on what has happened to your project.
Sadly there was no response whatsoever from my Show HN, but LineUp has been profitable since launch (minus my time/effort), gains about 100 new users per day, and was recently featured at TwilioCon in the Community Hall. I'm currently working on the UI/UX and the next big push for users, but have a few other things, like my actual job, getting in the way.
Any suggestions/feedback are always welcome!
The other main use case I see (about 10% of total users) are international (non-US) users, presumably to make/receive calls with US-based people without incurring international or long-distance charges.

"Takeaways From Firing A Startup Cofounder"
The original post was to get my personal site reviewed by Hacker News for my YC application. This worked well and I ended up going with a simpler design (and different content) for the final version. Unfortunately either the day after my submission or the next day, I had to fire my cofounder at the time for reliability issues. I submitted my application as a single founder and reflected on what would make a good cofounder. I called up the one person that ended up fitting the criteria and ~36 hours later we were filling out an update to the YC application.
So the application is in, with many changes over time. Tomorrow is the first day I'm actually going to try to make sales (I currently have been physically going to talk to the targeted customers and get feedback) as we have an MVP.
Unfortunately I didn't get the response I wanted, but I got some stars and forks on GitHub, so I'm happy. I'll continue developing this weekend project in my spare time.
Been just over a month since launch. Traffic has been slowly growing. Feedback has been pretty good. It's a marketing problem at the moment. Also working on trying to apply the technology to other industries. So hopefully I will launch another niche before the year is over.
Made this as a self-study on how to use metadata to describe objects in dynamic way - general classifieds are a good area for such a study. I'm currently working on a new UI, more user friendly I hope. Never had any feedback on HN.
Reached a lot of karma and comments here. I plan to update this in mid-November, getting a lot of emails and tweets about new colors and other stuff with the project.
There was no real response from the Show HN but we generated a decent amount of interest. We haven't reached our beta yet, but we decided to apply to YC so that we can work on it full time.
