Here’s What You Should Think

I’ve imported all of the posts from my first blog (“Here’s What You Should Think”), which I started and ended in 2004. Most of them are related to Toby, a webmail client I wrote in college, and anyInventory, an open-source inventory system I was developing around the same time.

Update: I am no longer involved in the development of anyInventory.

Update: Toby is no longer supported. I recommend using RoundCube Webmail instead.

Results – They Keep Going, and Going, and Going…

A couple days ago when I started keeping track of how many results Google returned for “anyinventory”, the total stood at 99. Today, 4 days later, we’re up to 420. This is mostly due to the announcement of 1.7.1 being posted to the front page of SourceForge, but there’s a couple sites linking independently. No interesting links today though, sorry.

Update: I am no longer involved in the development of anyInventory.

anyInventory 1.7.1 – Better than Ever

I released version 1.7.1 of anyInventory, a Web-based inventory system, today. To date, this is the release with the largest percentage of user-requested features added, so it should definitely be more usable than when I came up with my own features and stuck them in (although built-in password protection certainly is useful’)

Also, as a side note, as of today, Google returns 99 results when you search for anyInventory. I plan on tracking these results as the weeks go by and posting any interesting links I find. Here’s one to get us going:

anyInventory is linked under Software > Office > Warehouse at BlibbleBobble.co.uk, the site of one Oliver White. Thanks Oliver!

anyInventory – It Just Keeps Getting Better

anyInventory 1.7 was released today; this release is by far the best one yet. It has a brand new layout, built-in password protection of the administration directory, thumbnailing of remote images, and multiple-category alerts. I’m finally satisfied with how it looks and how stable it is; now the focus will be on digging out those last few bugs and adding some new features.

anyInventory News

Some various news about anyInventory, an open source inventory application I’ve been working on:

Version 1.5 was released today, with the addition of some of the label features promised in the documentation. Bug fixes are in there too, as always.

A new developer has joined anyInventory: Drew Hearle. Drew’s post on Slashdot was the inspiration for anyInventory, and now he’ll be contributing to it as well. Funny how life works, isn’t it?

Features planned for 1.6 include an improved search page, better remote file support, and timed alerts. So don’t touch that dial!

Update: I am no longer involved in the development of anyInventory.

anyInventory – Rising through the ranks

anyInventory, an open source inventory system that I’m working on is progressing nicely. It was ranked in the 99.21 percentile for activity in SourceForge the other day, and version 1.4 was released to rave reviews (well, my own rave reviews, but that still counts). Some issues with invalid zip files were resolved by offering a tar of the source files as well.

It is now the third result when you search SourceForge for ‘inventory,’ right behind ‘Inventory’ and ‘inventory’, which is up from being on the third page of results just a week ago. If you’d like to help develop or test anyinventory, or you are having problems installing, contact chris@efinke.com.
