BikeJournal Facebook App Update

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

I’ve made some updates to the BikeJournal Facebook App – some performance improvements and have added a new Tab View.

This Tab View also shows the two leaderboards – Yellow Jersey with the top 5 users for the month by distance, and Green Jersey for the top 5 riders with by average speed. If you don’t record distance or speed for your rides, you won’t be included in these leaderboards.

To add the Tab view to your profile, log in to your profile and click the + button and select BikeJournal. It’s that easy.

Get in touch if you have any questions or feedback about this!

Update: TPG Usage Widget

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

Download TPG Widget for OSX (version 1.10, 92kb)

  • Fixed major bug in percentage calculations that was causing us to always use the 10% warning, 20% critical limits
  • Modified horizontalIndicator behaviour – don’t show critical unless we are over the critical limit. Basically, this has the effect of “rounding down” from critical to warning, which is useful, given the granularity of the indicator I’m using
  • Removed target percentage, it’s unnecessary
  • Fixed minor bug with clicking on the two targets in quick succession

I think it’s time to update this page with product info and revision history, instead of having separate posts for each update….

Update: TPG Usage Widget

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

This version introduces two new features:

  • Click on the current usage value to see the current target
  • Notification if there’s a new version available on the back of the widget

Download TPG Usage Widget for OSX (version 1.8, 92kb)

It’s also now available from the Apple Dashboard Widgets site

3 updates in one week! Maybe I should stay off the booze more often ;)

That said, this version clears out all the todos I had on my list for this widget. So unless there’s any bugs, I don’t anticipate any new versions for a while, but let me know if there are any problems.

Update: Make sure you get the latest version of the widget!

Another minor update to fix some display issues that may show up at the very end and start of the billing cycles.

What’s changed this time:

  • Fixed bug in calculating offpeak usage (typo). Previously, offpeak was always green
  • If you’re over your total limit for the month, default to 75% warning and 90% critical for color coding. Otherwise, the entire bar is green
  • Fixed display bug: the short horizontal usage bars don’t have the granularity to show really small percentages (eg at the start of the billing period). So, we overwrite them with some friendlier values (10% of total for warning, 15% for critical). It’s less accurate, but clearer than showing a single red light
  • Don’t save empty values for settings (ensure the widget won’t forget your username or password)
  • Removed unnecessary saveSettings call
  • Converted all ints to floats, so we keep fractions of gb/mb

And if anyone was wondering, yes, you can use subversion to manage a Dashcode widget project…
