Along with the popularity of Twitter has come one of it biggest problems - its instability. More and more people are using the service every day and some are leaving when they encounter the frustration of too much downtime. Enter a project that Graham Christensen is getting started - Stablr, a PHP-based version of the popular web service.
Stablr, the proposed name, will be the main gateway for it's users. People will post to Stablr, which will then (when it can) forward it to Twitter. If a Stablr users posts to Twitter directly, the message will be retrieved and replicated on Stablr. Responses to posts, direct messages, and tweets from friends of Stablr users would also be replicated.
He's already seen some great response from the community with offers to help and has taken it to the next level by coming up with a five-page document detailing the plans behind the project (using things like caching, an Access database and Jabber integration).
