Tiny weeny improvements

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

Today i have taken some enormous steps and made some tiny fixes!
I have installed Cucumber and begun writing some tests. That’s one enormous step! I have also opened a MyChores account on Lighthouse for bug tracking. I am hoping that Exceptional will automatically open tickets for me. When MyChores goes open-source, as i definitely intend [...]

Over 2000 people!

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

As of right now we have 2,008 people registered on MyChores!
The 2000 milestone was reached when Paul joined yesterday. This is just 5 months after reaching the 1000 milestone. Thank you to you all, especially those of you who have been promoting MyChores on message boards and mailing lists. A special shout-out to Angela and [...]

RailsConf Europe

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

Hello all,
I will be away in Berlin for the next 4 days, but i’m sure MyChores will carry on just beautifully without me! ;)
If readers of this journal are going to be at RailsConf Europe, it would be most excellent to meet up! Let me know!

Upgrade complete

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

We are now running on Rails 2.1. I am trying a new method which is including Rails within the application, rather than relying on what happens to be running on the server (which is still 2.0.2).
I had to change to a new version of the Globalize plugin (kindly updated by the real Nate Clark) and [...]

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

I am currently upgrading MyChores to use Rails 2.1. There may be some brief downtime. I’ll post again when the upgrade is complete.

MyChores Journal RSS feed

Sunday, April 13th, 2008

Sorry to the people who were still using the old RSS feed address. I think i lost the URL rewrite rule when i upgraded to Wordpress 2.5. This would be why MyChores journal has not been syndicating on LiveJournal for a few weeks. I’m very sorry about that, especially during this troubled week when you [...]

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 Actually, there was a bit of code tweaking to be done to be compatible with a newer version of the ruby-openid gem so i’m glad that’s [...]

Emails back again!

Friday, April 11th, 2008

The email issue has been sorted and emails are coming through now. We have an idea of a fix for the OpenID issue, which i will try this evening.
Many thanks for your patience.

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.
