Paper and Video

Tuesday, August 30th, 2005

Voo2do recently got a couple of mentions in media that haven’t before, to my knowledge, noted it. The first is a real dead-trees paper, although I can’t tell whether the Site Seeing column in the 8/19/2005 St. Petersburg Times is actually printed or an online-only feature.

Tuesday, August 30th, 2005

Over the past few days, the server that powers voo2do has been plagued by responsiveness and stability problems. I believe these have been caused not by voo2do itself, but by another application I wrote which runs on the same server. That application, the frassle weblog system, is currently down. In the next couple of days, […]

By user request (!), there is a now a way to donate money to me. I’ll use it to pay for the server that runs voo2do. If you really like it, or have a special feature request, even a nominal donation is a good way to get my attention. Look for the pink donate box […]

Saturday, August 20th, 2005

Although Voo2do now has 1180 users, I think that attention is mostly due to social bookmarking sites like From what feedster tells me, here’s the round-up of discussion about voo2do: Update: Chris Beams posted a mention and a greasemonkey script that adds a keyboard shortcut for creating a task.
