2012-08-05 -- New support forum (link)

Get Satisfaction (HS's support forums so far) is inadequate. Over the time, they've crippled their free version so much as to render it unusable (and they're certainly not good enough to pay for it). Until recently, I didn't have spam problems on the GS forums, but a few days ago, I got a spam post and I realized with horror that there was no way for me, as a free user, to flag individual posts as spam. I had toyed with the idea of moving away for a while now, but that spam issue certainly pushed me into doing it now.

I've set up a new support forum at http://forum.hardcoded.net.

Fortunately, Get Satisfaction has an API to access its data and I could, with a few hours of efforts, migrate all its topics to the new forum.

I've always hesitated to host my own forum because I was afraid of the spam problem. Well, now I guess I'll live and learn.

2012-07-12 -- New HS Ubuntu PPA! (link)

I have awesome news for Ubuntu users: Yesterday I sat down and spent the day figuring out how Ubuntu PPAs (Personal Public Archive) work. I improved my packaging scripts and was finally able to upload source packages that could correctly build on Canonical's build farm. Therefore, I can now offer you a PPA with all HS apps on it! For those who don't realize what that means, it means that it's now possible to integrate HS packages into your Ubuntu packaging system, thus enabling auto-updates. I'm pretty excited about this. You can read more about HS's PPA in the Linux Notes.

2012-04-08 -- New application: KronoX (link)

KronoX is a GPL time tracker for Mac developed by Peter Ljunglöf. Its development stalled two years ago. Being a user of this app and wanting to see it continue to improve, I asked Peter if he was OK with me taking over KronoX's development and he was. So, that is why I added a KronoX product page on my website today.

KronoX development will be funded by fairware contributions, like my other apps. Because KronoX's development is already pretty advanced and that all I have to do is add a couple of new features and fix bugs here and there, there shouldn't be many development hours to compensate fairware-wise so it shouldn't be too hard to fund.
