Must do security. Must do security. I'm trying to make that my mantra so I get it out of the way. I did spend most of today on permissions & security, but (don't tell anyone), I spent part of that time on finishing up the permissions UI, which I like a lot better now. It's now (mostly) Ajaxified like the rest of the site, which makes it feel a lot better. I worked on a bunch of tasks today, but I only completed one.
I mentioned the other day that my board of advisers is basically anyone who wants to offer advice. And I mean that seriously. Comment on my blog, send me email, grab me in the hallway -- it's all good. I'm looking for feedback of all types -- kudos, suggestions, and criticisms. If I'm doing something dumb or missed something obvious, I want to know. Just yesterday, Scott Blomquist commented that I'd missed something obvious (it's great how things are obvious after they're pointed out). Now that I'm in the end game, a great way to visualize progress is with a chart. So, here goes. I'll update this in each blog post until I launch.
Note the uptick in Large Tests. In doing the security work, I realized another test I have to do. Basically, if my server goes down, the client can get confused. I already have fixing that on my list of things to do, but I realized that testing it could be a big deal.
I probably won't blog this weekend as I'm going to Seattle Mind Camp. In fact, I'm stopping work for the day to create a mini Puzzle Hunt to bring. I'll be giving away a cool Puzzazz hat as a prize.
