WebAdmin Fail

Posted 2014.04.20 9.03 in Computers/Internet/Technology

So I’ve just figured out that for the past…several weeks at least, the web server that hosts all my stuff (PlanetStephanie.net, FelesMagus.com, WiccaPlus.com) has not been able to talk to the email server that sends out things like… registration emails etc.

The two had a spat or something, and just weren’t talking to each other.

I’d noticed that there seemed to be a lot fewer admin emails coming through lately, but I’ve been so busy that it didn’t really sink in.

Anyhow, today I noticed that there’ve been a number of new sign-ups for the Wicca Plus forums, except nobody had completed the registration. So I started digging and…

OMG do I feel like the fool. So people have been trying to register, they go through the sign-up process, but they never receive the registration email.

I haven’t seen any other contact though, nobody’s left a comment on the support page or emailed me directly about it… but it feels pretty dumb I mean I’ve been wondering why there’s been so little activity on the forum, trying to push it a bit… only now to find out that it’s not working right.

Gah!

So anyhow, it seems to be fixed now.

If you have tried to register on the forum and never got your registration email, I sincerely apologize. You can get the system to re-send the registration email by logging in with the user id and password you registered under, then on the User CP page, you will see a link to re-send your registration email.

If you don’t see that link, you might already be fully registered – I have looked through the sign-ups and have authorized the ones that appear genuine.

Once again, I apologize for the mix-up.

Busy Busy

Posted 2014.04.01 20.06 in iphone, Work

Sorry the posts have been few and far between recently / the past few months / this year.

The good news – I’m barely depressed at all lately, so no doom-and-gloom posts to darken your days.

The ‘bad’ news – I’ve been so busy working on things, I keep forgetting to stop and make time to post about stuff.

I’m doing about 50% working on app-related things, and 50% working on my ‘regular day job‘ stuff. App stuff is fun and interesting, the day job stuff is…day job stuff. Plus, it’s tax-time which is always fun. You know, fun like dental surgery.

I’ve got a brand-new app I’ve been trying to finish for a week and a half now, but I keep finding new features to add and new bugs to squish. Then I have another update I want to push out for Overlord! – a minor bug squish and another new feature or two.

Then I have a Very Big update for Wicca Plus to get cracking on. More features, more goodies. I don’t want to spoil it, but if I manage to succeed at what I’m planning, it will be very nifty.

Busy Busy.

Overlord! Version 1.1 Released

Posted 2014.03.12 20.20 in iphone

Overlord Update

Overlord! version 1.1 is now available on the App Store.

This version includes a couple new features that people have been asking for.

  • The #1 feature was to change the colour scheme. Turns out, Emergency Yellow just isn’t anybody’s favorite, so now there’s a variety of ‘flavours’ such as Cupcake, Grape, Tangerine, et cetera.
  • The second big freature is full calendar management – rather than just toggling what calendars to display or suppress you can now add, remove, or edit (name and colour) the calendars on your device.
  • Finally, alarm options for all-day events have been greatly improved and expanded.

Some other improvements include better handling of shared / cloud calendars, various bug fixes, and minor corrections.

For more information, please have a look at the Overlord! Calendar Replacement app page.

Overlord! is available in the App Store.

 

 

Wicca Plus 2.1 Released

Posted 2014.02.24 7.38 in iphone

Version 2.1Wicca Plus version 2.1 has been released on the app store!

Two quick tips:

To set the app for Southern Hemisphere mode, go into Settings -> Wicca Plus -> North/South Hemisphere. I decided to do it this way as it’s likely something you’ll only need to do once, and it didn’t make sense to add the whole location framework for a function that’d only typically be needed one time.

Likewise, printing support is enabled in Settings. In Settings -> Wicca Plus -> Show Print Button can be toggled on and off. For those who do not have an AirPrint printer, or don’t need to print, the Print button doesn’t need to appear on the screen.

If you do want to print, toggle Show Print Button to on, and then it will appear next to the Edit button at the top right corner of your entries.

If you have any questions or comments, or you want to request a feature or have found a bug, you can reach me either through the Wicca Plus forums, or the Support page.

Cheers!

Imbolc Update

Posted 2014.02.01 8.52 in Pointless Blather, Spiritual

The past six weeks, from Yule to Imbolc, have been pretty unpleasant here.

We had the ice storm, which led to damage to the house and a week-long power outage. My cats and I had to seek refuge with my sister. The house almost froze over while I was away and all my aquarium pets died.

Since the power was restored, my fridge has died, my furnace has needed work twice, the washer and dryer have needed attention, and the stairs to the cellar collapsed.

All in all, it’s been an unpleasant (and expensive) six weeks. Here’s hoping that things will improve between now and Ostara.

Looking ahead, I’m still working hard to get the update to Wicca Plus finished. It’s about a fortnight behind schedule due to the aforementioned issues, but with luck it should be completed shortly.
