What took me so long? Well, i have had a lot going on lately, but i have also been working on a neat little feature suggested by Bill - the ability to change importance by hovering and clicking the stars. Just as if you were rating something on youtube or netflix. Many thanks to BeautScott.com for the widget, which uses scriptaculous and AJAX and is surprisingly fast to render and use, even with 40 instances on a page.
I hope you enjoy this new super-fast method to update the importance of your tasks. Let me know if it causes any problems.
