I submitted my first commit to my GitHub repository (fork) today!
https://github.com/sweetppro/potionstore

this is the open-source Rails app I use to power my online store. I recently spent time upgrading it to support Rails4, and figured others would find the changes useful.

Development has ceased over at the official repository, but its served me so well over the past 4yrs, and I wanted to give a little love back to the open-source community.

WiFiSpoof 2.0

WiFiSpoof v2.0 is now available!

I have tweaked and updated the UI to make it more appealing and user friendly.
To make my life easier with support, it is now only supported on OS X Mavericks(10.9) and above (out with the old… and looking towards the future)

A much requested feature was the ability to run WiFiSpoof as a stand-alone app, I have listened to all the requests, and finally added this ability. So you can now quickly open WiFiSpoof – randomise your MAC address, then quit. This work-flow works well for some users.

If you’re using your laptop on public WiFi networks, you really should be using WiFiSpoof.
http://sweetpproductions.com/wifispoof

you can take it for a free 14day test-drive, after which it will still be fully functioning… you just won’t have the ability to use the handy randomise function, or be able to automatically revert to your MAC hardware address.

Cheers guys!
:)

Store down for a couple of days….

So as i was boarding a flight to New Zealand to visit my son for his birthday yesterday, i discovered my Store was down! It seems my host changed their mySQL implementation and managed to bork my Store….

for anyone interested, the Store runs on a custom PotionStore (Rails) app, which accesses a mySQL database. previously i was accessing the database using mySQL2, however after Bluehost “tweaked” the server my store is hosted on it started throwing errors….

I tried to migrate to postgreSQL, but had nothing but problems, so as a last resort (after around 10 hrs of pulling my hair out) i tried using mySQL instead of mySQL2, and low and behold the Store started right up!

happy days!

i hope no one was put off purchasing any of my apps by the downtime. The SweetP Store is now back online and ready for business.

crypto coin payments

Ive spent the day fixing the Bitcoin/Litecoin/Dogecoin payments system in my website. It wasn’t always pretty working in Ruby, as its not a language im super confident (or even mildly competent in …) but I got there in the end. The coin payments system is now better and more efficient than ever.

and don’t forget, you can use this coupon code:
CRYPTOCOIN

for a 20% discount on any crypto coin purchase through my store:

Hides v2.0 and USBclean v1.0.5

Hides version 2.0 is available now in the Mac App Store or in the SweetP Store.

Hides v2.0 is the same app you all love ,with a new modern and fresh look!
Hides is useful for effortlessly clearing your desktop in one quick keystroke, or quickly enable Single App Mode for a distraction free work environment.

Single App Mode is exactly what you think it would be. only one app is in focus at one time on your desktop. Whenever you change to another app, all other apps are hidden from view leaving your entire focus for that one app.

USBclean version 1.0.5 is also available exclusively in the Mac App Store.

It is a relatively minor update, with only an update to the copyright notice, and I’ve added a ratings button for shameless self promotion.

Don’t forget folks, if you like my apps, please leave a review in the App Store!

and if you don’t like one of my apps for some reason, let me know!
send me an email by visiting my contact page, or using the feedback menu which is included in some of my apps.

Privatus 3.1

Privatus v3.1 is now available in the Mac App Store

it is quite a big update, and I recommend all users upgrade when possible. v3.1 fixes the threat of HSTS super cookies, just as the Cookie v3.5 upgrade did last week. Privatus has the same limitation as Cookie however, in that the computer must be restarted to finalise removal of HSTS for Safari…. all other browsers the removal is immediate, and no restart is required. Lets hope Apple fixes this vulnerability in Safari. :)

heres the list of changes for those that are interested:

  • HSTS super cookie removal in FireFox,Chrome,Chromium,Opera (Computer needs to be restarted for Safari HSTS removal…)
  • it is now optional to keep Privatus Worker running after Privatus has been quit (“Keep me protected at all times” has been added as an option in Preferences”)
  • added a user notice when opening MenuBar for the first time
  • fixed cache removal
  • fixed info button
  • updated copyright and credits
  • removed some debugging console messages
  • added a ratings button
  • upgrade button now opens link directly in Mac App Store
