I posted a comment on digg yesterday that really got some serious traffic coming to colorSpace. This also caused me to realize that I had a big problem with the applet – namely, I had compiled it with JDK 1.6 which broke backwards compatibility with JRE 1.5. After recompiling (and re-releasing the site), everything works correctly again!

Rainy Sunday August 27, 2006

And what do I do on a rainy day like today? Work on colorSpace of course! Today, I rearranged the homepage to make a clearer separation between trying out the product and signing in for existing users. I replaced all instances of “Pages” with “Spaces” (after all, we are coloring Spaces aren’t we?) and reworked the list page to make the E-Mail option hopefully more clear (with better hover text on mouseovers as well).

“What about the new features ?”, you ask. No release would be complete without a new feature and today I’ve added a nice popup in the list view page to give you a better idea exactly what the drawing contains. Just move the mouse over the thumbnail view to see what I’m talking about!

What if August 23, 2006

What if I replaced the current (AJAX driven) image mechanism that is used in the “Share with a friend” page with another “drawing” applet? As I’m already requiring folks to have Java installed if they want to color anything, how much more of a stretch is it to assume that the people they share with do not have (or cannot get) the Java Plug-in installed on their browsers? Besides an incredible performance boosts for all parties (drawing client, my poor server and the watching client) it provides the first solid capability to allow real user interactions (“Hey, that tree would look a lot better if it were purple!”). What do you think?
