Habit 1.1.0

I’ve just updated Habit to version 1.1.0.

Here’s what changes in this version:

  • fixed a bug that prevented the habit hierarchy from loading correctly
  • added code to detect a read-only database
  • added code to recover corrupted database items (just in case)
  • added a green line to the graph to indicate the current date in relation to the last recorded date
  • removed the non-functional menu item view-->reminders
  • made some captions more understandable
  • added a menu item for deleting a habit

Writers Block

Although I’m still very close to finishing habit, I’m having trouble figuring out exactly how the alert window should behave. But, at this point I’ve made a whole bunch of UI tweaks and created the icons. Hopefully I’ll get inspired before the weekend.

In the Works

I’ve slowed development on refigurator, in favor of a new project that I have more of a need for in my daily life. The name of the new program is Habit. Its a personal organizer that takes the opposite approach to the daily planner; you write down when you do things, and Habit predicts when you will do them next. If you fall behind (adjustable), it will let you know. Alternatively, you can set it to warn you ahead of time.

This sort of thing would be really handy for reminding you to water your plants, pay your bills, call your mom, exercise, etc. It might also be used for searching for patterns in the way your body or your car works (“Hmmm… I seem to run out of coolant every 18 days…”). It may also be interesting to learn which habits coincide (“Hmmm…. I have a nervous breakdown every 18 days…”).

Hopefully I’ll have at least a beta version done by this weekend.
