TodoCue Action

With some strategic caching, TodoCue processing times are down from the 200ms range to less than 1ms for many (repeat) requests. New features include embeddeding in iGoogle by using this gadget, cancelling editing with Esc, and saving by clicking away from an item. The app is now translated into Espa├▒ol, Fran├žais, Slovensky, and Svenska. I'm looking forward to seeing what snazzy styles people customize their TodoCue with (via the custom CSS field under Account). Send them to me and I'll make them options for all users. As a side note, I plan to release the code under a FOSS license; stay tuned. Digg TodoCue

Embedded TodoCue

I created a Firefox extension that puts TodoCue on the sidebar in GMail and Google Calendar. (With the extension's preferences you can actually pull in any URL).
Also, you can now drag and drop todos between lists. If anyone wants to help, the app is ready to be translated. For an idea of the response so far, there have been 79 new users and 1k visitors since I first blogged about todocue. It's a simple project with a simple goal, and I'm thrilled if it's been useful to people. Note: if you have an addons.mozilla.org account you can help get the extension onto the public site. Update: TodoCue is now translated into Swedish by Daniel Nylander and Slovak by Michal Harakal!

Kickin it Standards Style

I added iCal and XML feeds to TodoCue today. Here is an iCal feed configured as a web todo list via Evolution and put onto my desktop calendar:

Chicago: Pot of Gold

The most amazing rainbow was over Lake Michigan an hour ago. I ran to the roof and snapped some pretty pictures, though they do the experience little justice.
Update: Not sure how this disappeared from the web; sorry for the repost.

Cue the Action

A few weeks ago I wrote a small webapp in Rails that I've dubbed TodoCue. It is a simple, slick todo list program.
