Downtime aftermath

Sunday, October 28th, 2007

Firstly - I LOVE YOU PEOPLE!! Within minutes of sending out the email saying MyChores was back, the site was once again buzzing with activity.

New feature: Task Template

As suggested in an email from Bill:

With a Task Template, you can now do exactly that. If you often create tasks with the same recurrence options you can set your preference [...]
