Any DeLorean owners out there? Check out my clock project, DeClock! At €125 (with free worldwide shipping), this is currently the best replacement clock available. Use the rheostat dial to adjust settings, see the inside and outside temperature. It comes with its own battery, so even if you use a battery cutoff switch, this clock will keep time for 8 years.
Check out the details, but remember: the possibility to order ends on August 1st 2014, don't miss out!
Even though i've requested increased access on the Google Analytics API, I'm getting more reports of people receiving errors. Here are some of the errors:
The cause of this, is that i'm going over the courtesy limit of 50k requests per day.
I am very annoyed by this and I am doing everything in my power to solve the issues, but with Google you never know.
This leads me to a second topic. SimplyStats does not use intermediary services. The data is pulled straight from Google. When building SimplyStats I never anticipated this kind of traffic volume. Also, I have never thought about implementing a 'Message of the Day' or a 'Sorry, we're closed' message. So currently there is no way for me to tell people to be patient. And i'm really sorry about that.
Google has approved my request and the courtesy limit has been increased to 200k per day, which is 4 times the volume. Thank you google!
Exactly one year ago, on june 10, 2013, SimplyStats 1.0 was released to the App Store. I never imagined it to turn out this big. How big? About 2800-users-every-day-big! That is over 20k Analytics reports daily. This all amounted to the staggering total reports this year of 2.878.100 Google Analytics reports!
Last week the 11th update was pushed to the Apple, and I am now preparing for work on the big 2.0 version. It will be bigger and better than any update before.
Thank you so much! Let us get ready for next year!
If feel privileged. It usually takes about a week to get an update of my app reviewed and published, yet with this update it took no more than 22 hours!
- Now shows proper property name instead of site url for both web and app profiles.
- Added much requested reports by city and by region.
- Added pricing information for In-App purchase.
- Refined user interface design.
- Animation tweaks.
- Adjusted custom date range selection.
- Really tiny bugfixes.
And remember: all functionality is still free. No crippleware. Just a few ads.
This month, the guys on code42.com are giving 20% of on any one year plan of their backup software. I don't usually do commercials, but in this case I make an exception. In my opinion, their backup system is simply brilliant. I also think having a proper backup plan is not optional. It is a requirement.
With Crashplan, you are not required to pay a fee though, because it is very easy to set it up with a free plan. The only drawbacks of this free plan:
I have installed Crashplan free on my Synology DS1513+, opened up a few ports on my router. I can now access my backups from everywhere without a problem.
I used to rely on Apple's Time Machine for my backups. Unfortunately the big verification error bug plagues me. If I can't rely on a backup, it is not the backup software for me. I do keep an offline Time Machine backup at hand though, so I can always restore my machine from scratch.
Anyway, CrashPlan is a perfect solution for online and offsite backups. Give it a try.

In order to better support my clients and customers, I have installed osTicket. osTicket is a freeware Support Ticket system able to poll an email folder so that it looks like a mail server. It also provides full web access to the client's ticket.
Just minutes ago, I pushed 2 updates to Apple (stop tinkering, i said to myself):
The SimplyStats update brings a few fixes and features that could not make it in the previous release, due to a very tricky release plan involving Ad's and In-App purchases. This update is a roll-up update, and all the parked features are now tested and shipped.
Syas Nomis is a small iPhone game I made for your enjoyment. Just press buttons, and try to remember the sequence that gets longer and longer!
As of now, both updates are published.
Both the apps are free in the App Store.
