Let’s make OpenID easier!

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

The subject of this post was the subject of an email i received at the weekend. The ever-awesome JanRain have launched another OpenID product, called ID Selector to make OpenID more obvious and easier than ever.
I have added the simple DHTML plugin to the OpenID registration screen, which works a dream, and makes it very [...]

All back to normal

Saturday, April 12th, 2008

I am happy to report that MyChores is finally back on track and working as it should. The emails are going out and the OpenID functionality has been restored. Actually, there was a bit of code tweaking to be done to be compatible with a newer version of the ruby-openid gem so i’m glad that’s [...]

OpenID and email still not working

Friday, April 11th, 2008

I am very sorry about this. HostingRails are working on it, but they are not providing the helpful service that i had come to trust. I guess they are fixing a lot of problems for a lot of people after the restore. We will have to be patient a little longer.

Everything not quite right just yet

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

Emails are not being sent correctly and OpenID is not working.
Unfortunately they are quite major things, i realise. I have asked HostingRails to look into it. Very sorry for the inconvenience, especially to our OpenID users who will be unable to log in just now.

MyChores mention on JanRain

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

Woohoo! I just noticed, MyChores got a mention on the JanRain blog! There’s a nice post over there detailing how OpenID is growing … very exciting, and i feel proud to be a big supporter of OpenID. JanRain indirectly described MyChores as awesome (for supporting OpenID and encouraging others to use it)!
I have also made [...]

MyChores Journal now on WordPress

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

I have migrated this journal to use WordPress instead of Typo. I found Typo a bit tedious, especially as it went wrong a long time ago, breaking all the URLs, and i couldn’t work out how to fix it. I’ve just started using WordPress for a personal blog, and i love it! It’s very customisable, [...]

More OpenID news

Saturday, June 2nd, 2007

I am pleased to report that MyChores Mobile now allows OpenID login. In keeping with the ‘minimum administration’ aspect of MyChores Mobile, you cannot register there with OpenID, nor can you associate your account with an OpenID; those things have to be done on the main MyChores site. (The real reason is because it would [...]

We are OpenID enabled!

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

MyChores has just become OpenID enabled! I’ve tested it with LiveJournal, MyOpenID and VeriSign, and they all work a treat. You are welcome to associate your MyChores account with an OpenID; just go to Preferences and it’s under Login details.
I have become quite the OpenID evangelist in the space of a few short days! It [...]

Coming very soon: OpenID authentication

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

I decided to make yesterday a MyChores Monday since the weather was so rotten and i had nothing much else to do. I spent the day learning about, and implementing, OpenID authentication.

OpenID lets you authenticate yourself with a trust mechanism between websites, rather than using a username and password. If you have a URL that [...]
