Facebook fan group

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

It is with some embarrassment that i report there is now a Facebook fan group for MyChores, courtesy of Kristen Bonardi Rapp, who says it is for “Fans and friends of the MyChores system”.
It is with even greater embarrassment that i notice i have been tagged as “Creative Genius Behind The Site” - heh, thanks [...]

Pictures are back!

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

No thanks to HostingRails (hem hem!) i have managed to restore almost all of the user-uploaded pictures. In the end we only lost 32 pictures. If you are one of the people who have lost pictures, i am sorry, you will have to upload them again.

Branch and merge

Monday, December 1st, 2008

I do apologise, i’ll get over this soon … but for now, wow, this is so exciting!

The diagram starts at the bottom and works upwards. It shows how i branched off to work on the Capistrano changes, and Mat did some work tidying up the post-to-Twitter code.
Where you see remotes/origin/master, that’s the current state of [...]
