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 [...]

Auto-refresh enhancement

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

Have you ever wished your workload list would auto-refresh itself? Well now it can. Just go into your Preferences - Workload Preferences and set the “Auto-refresh workload” option. By default it is set to “never”, but you can have every minute, five minutes or ten minutes, depending what you think would be useful.
I thought somebody [...]

Sometimes the smallest changes are the best

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

It just occurred to me that i could make a really useful enhancement to the search page. When you search for tasks you will now get them ordered by due date (the due date also appears for you) and you can tick them off right from the search page. It’s like a mini filtered workload [...]

Upgrade complete

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

We are now up and running with Rails 2.0.2. There were a few unforseen difficulties along the way, and you will probably need to login again. We are now storing session information in the database rather than cache in your browser. This turns out to be more secure.
The American English spellings are ready and our [...]

Awesomeness on its way!

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

I am very excited about some enhancements coming very soon! Firstly, let me tell you about something i released last month but kept quiet about it: in-place editing. You can now edit a task’s title and due date from your workload list without going to the edit page. It needs a setting activated in Preferences [...]

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.

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.
