CSS change

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

I have changed the CSS … purely selfish really … the ‘Trebuchet MS’ was breaking on my netbook and falling back to some ugly serif font. So i’ve changed to ‘Lucida Grande’. If this causes any issues for anyone, please shout.
I promise i won’t do this all the time but, just this once, because it’s [...]

In Remembrance

Saturday, November 8th, 2008

In tribute to all who have suffered and died in warfare, there is a ‘Poppies’ theme available on MyChores. It is available all year round, but i thought i’d just post a little reminder since we are coming up to remembrance day. The theme is available by going to Help Centre and then Themes.

I give [...]

Autumn theme

Saturday, October 11th, 2008

Hello everyone. I know it’s been several months since i made any changes or updates to MyChores. Now that programming Ruby on Rails is my full-time job (which i love) i find that it is hard for something to be both a job and a hobby. One thing that i would like to do is [...]

New logo and theme

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

MyChores has a new logo! :)
Okay, so i am way behind with the whole Web 2.0 logo phenomenon, but i am proud of this new logo and you can’t deny it is better than the old one! ;)
We also have a new banner to go with it, showing off our new tagline … wow it’s [...]

Just a quick update

Friday, January 18th, 2008

Followers of my personal journal will know that i have been having computer troubles. I think the power supply unit died following a series of little power cuts that we had last weekend. I have ordered a new PSU and will be putting it together next week. Hopefully that will bring the computer back to [...]

Minor statistics addition

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

I updated the public statistics page to add a bar chart at the bottom, showing the five most popular themes. This is mostly for my own interest, but i guess there could be a few people out there who love statistics as much as i do!
The majority of people never seem to change their theme, [...]

Two new themes

Monday, November 5th, 2007

I bought a poppy today, for Remembrance Day, and i thought, wouldn’t it be nice to have a MyChores theme with poppies on it. I don’t know whether all countries have the same symbolism, but in the UK many of us wear small paper poppies as a sign of remembrance for all who have died [...]

MyChores Makeover

Saturday, July 28th, 2007

I’ve been working on this for a few weeks, but Harry Potter proved to be rather distracting! ;)
Tonight i have released the new-look MyChores, which is hopefully cleaner, more attractive, easier to navigate, and also lends itself more easily to new themes.
The four existing themes have been upgraded to match the new design, so it [...]

MyChores API and a new theme

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

Today marks two new things on MyChores. Firstly, the very beginnings of an API, and secondly a new theme. Let’s talk about the theme first; i’ll come back to the API in a minute.
The new theme is called ‘Patience’. It’s grey and white, pale, blocky, and i couldn’t resist doing a bit of the diagonal [...]

MyChores Themes

Monday, January 1st, 2007

I was inspired today to make a new theme for MyChores. It’s soppily called ‘Love’ – i could have saved it for Valentines Day … but i was too excited to wait that long! Here’s a preview:

The theme has an advantage [...]
