  1. Use Tasks Upgrades Complete

    All Use Tasks accounts have been upgraded to the latest releases of Tasks Pro™ and Tasks. Enjoy! This post is part of the project: Tasks Pro™. View the project timeline for more context on this post.

  2. FeedLounge Downtime

    FeedLounge was down for about 20 hours last week while we upgraded the back-end systems to roll out a huge performance improvement. This, naturally, generated some unrest amongst our users. After Scott and I got some rest and discussed the matter, I posted a lengthy response in the thread. This post is part of the…

  3. Use Tasks Lockout

    I got halfway through upgrading the Use Tasks accounts and got locked out of the #%%$ing server. Unfortunately, calls to the server admin have gone unanswered, so Use Tasks will unfortunately be offline until I can get back into the server. My guess is that will be sometime after the server admin wakes up and…

  4. More Languages Available

    The latest releases of Tasks Pro™ and Tasks now have the following language packs available: English French German Japanese Norwegian Spanish If you’d like to contribute a language, I’ve got a translation kit to try to make it easy for you. Now that I’ve got all the language files that are in use by customers…

  5. Speaking At Colorado PHP Meeting Tonight

    I’ll be fielding questions at the Colorado PHP meeting downtown tonight – feel free to come by and ask me something. 🙂 The meeting details are in the mailing list (which I assume has archives somewhere), however if you want to come and can’t find the info – drop me a note and I’ll send…

  6. Camino 1.0 Released!

    Camino, my primary browser since at least March of 20031, has reached 1.0! Congrats to the Camino team. There’s a bunch of good press out there – as well there should be. Firefox is a better browser for development due to all the great extensions and tools available, but the Camino browsing experience certainly feels…

  7. Tasks Pro™ 1.6.1 and Tasks 2.6.1 Released

    Ah, the inevitable .1 releases. 🙂 These are bug fix releases, addressing issues found in the Tasks Pro™ 1.6 and Tasks 2.6 releases. Changes in both Tasks Pro™ and Tasks: “Forgot Password” feature works properly. Future recurring tasks are properly deleted upon request. The syntax in the last 2 CRON examples in the documentation for…

  8. Around the web

    tow.com – Treo 700w battery life Text-Link-Ads Amaze – always looking for interesting ad solutions… I may give these a spin. tecosystems: Next Denver Tech Meetup – I’ll be there. Om Malik on Broadband – Bush: lets tax WiFi GrApple – Aronnax`s Firefox Themes – new home for great Mac Firefox themes. mypapit – Using…

  9. 24 Hour Turnaround

    In the last few days, we’ve been able to fix a couple of bugs within 24 hours of the bug report1. The users notice. This is a good thing all around. 🙂 No matter how long you test a product, actually letting it loose in the wild will always give you a flurry of strange…

  10. Voting System

    My last project for Eric was building a system for him to run a weekly photo competition on Wetpixel.com. This turned out to be a bit larger project than we thought, but we also added a bit more to the system than we’d originally planned. Using the admin interface, Eric and the other Wetpixel admins…

  11. Setting DIV Height in IE

    I implemented resizable panes in FeedLounge this afternoon. Everything went rather smoothly (I’d prototyped it in the San Jose Airport and on the plane last month), until I found one very strange issue in IE. When I resized the vertically separated panes, they would only go in one direction. Moving the bar down worked fine,…

  12. Treo 600 Dying

    My Treo 600 is dying, the Option, Shift, 0, Spacebar, Menu, Return and Backspace keys no longer work. The Treo 700p is supposedly coming in a month or two, so the timing is less than ideal for something like this (buying a 600 or 650 now makes no sense). Anyone have an old Sprint Treo…

  13. Jayron Weaver

    I bought Jayron Weaver’s CD a few weeks ago (as I previously planned) – I think it’s pretty good. If you liked him on Nashville Star, it’s definitely worth getting. Besides, it’s always good to support someone just starting out. I think he’ll have more success sticking with the ballads that really showcase his voice…
