It has been a long time in coming but finally pcfworks.com has a new look. I’ve timed it specifically to coincide with the new version or the re-release of my time tracking application, VeriTime which had its beginnings in the late 1990s and early 2000s. I know that’s eons in Internet time. I had quite a few registrations and received good suggestions on how to make it better.
Sometime mid-2008 I was working on a new version when the hard disk of my development machine crashed taking along with it VeriTime’s source code. I committed the most basic of software developer errors and that is I did not have a backup! You developers out there would know the sinking feeling of such an event. Suffice to say I was devastated and as a consequence I did not write any code for almost a year. I had several tries in resurrecting VeriTime but to no avail. On a positive note, I am now using Assembla to store the source code of my different development projects (I am using SVN).
In the last couple of months I started tinkering with VeriTime’s source code (from an older version not the one that got wiped out) and finally mustered enough drive to re-develop it again and release this new version. At least I’ve improved the task timer function especially the management of the time of tasks being paused and resumed since this was the source of several support requests.
