  • May 2 – Plan: Stitch 'er up, I'm done!

    Today Yesterday was surgery, I took the codebase around the chat room requesting apart and cut out a lot of crappy code.  In the last week I have replaced lots of old tech and upgraded many of the gems that are the foundation of ServiceChat (especially mongoid, Rails and Tweetstream) and refactored all the supporting apps (Tron […]

  • May 1 – Retro : Pulled a Train

    Check In I’m sad I got mad with Katharine, it was a silly trivial thing that didn’t need to happen. Glad that we talked about it and made good. Glad that the surge of effort (I worked pretty late) to crack the twitter request functions of ServiceChat was successful Glad I decided to use sferik’s […]

  • May 1 – Plan : Full of Promise.

    Today The main push today is to get ServiceChat hosts being able to request from Twitter. This is currently the biggest differentiator from other products out there.  It is the simplest, fastest and most unobtrusive mechanism I have seen.   it just works (well at least it did in ChittyChat!). I’m going to start by […]

  • April 30 – Retro : Beautiful Things Unfolding!

    Copyright 2013 – Brianna Sutton Check In I’m glad that my cold and fatigue are conquered for now. Glad that I stuck to my schedule and worked sustainably Glad I did 80 pushups across all 4 of my ten-minute breaks! I’m mad that I am still discovering more things to be done. Glad that there […]

  • April 24: Much Done, Much To Do

    Check In I’m glad that just as I began to slip back into disorganisation I recovered with some planning and regained focus. I’m glad that so many people thing ServiceChat is a great idea (except they don’t have to pay for it) I’m sad the all these people don’t have to pay for it (if […]

  • April 23: Scary Challenges

    Check In I’m glad that just after my entry yesterday, I was able to knuckle down (aided by some wine) and fix my issues. I’m sad that, as a result,  I went to bed pretty early in the morning and so today was tiring. I’m glad that I spent time with my wife, having coffee […]

  • April 22: Frustrations Galore

      Check In I’m mad that I’ve spent most of today on two of the functional bits that should just work but don’t. With really important customer discovery effectively paused until I can get the ServiceChat beta site up, I’m seething that something I can’t identify is toying with me. Arrgghh – frustrating! I’m glad […]

  • April 19 : Leaps and Bounds!

      Check In I’m glad that I only worked a half day today, I got to spend the afternoon with my sons. I’m glad  that I was inspired to steal, with permission, Olaf’s template that he was inspired to make by reading this blog (everything is connected!) – Please let me know what you think […]

  • 18-April-2013: Habits are forming!

    Check In I’m glad that today (day 3 ) of this new way of doing my thing, is the first day that it all pretty much worked. I’m delighted that I have never been happier. I’m glad I took time to sketch out the skins, made things go a lot faster and smoother. I’m sad […]

  • 17-April-2013: Sloooow!

    Check In I’m frustrated that everything I tried to do today took longer than I thought it would. I’m glad I stopped to consider why and what I could do about it. I’m mad that I needed to continue my task to research customers (this shit is important!!! and urgent) and I was not able […]
