Tickets is a full featured, yet easy to use help-desk system.

I've been working on it for the last few months and it is now pretty awesome.

Password Manager

Michael Dale

I've never found a password manager that I like (the story of my life)!

I've never been a fan of hosting my personal data with other companies.

So I spent two days writing my own.

Mr Password is awesome. It does almost everything a Password Manager should do. I'm selling it cheap on codecanyon and once purchased you get free upgrades and access to the code.

Features include:

  • Unlimited number of custom fields per password.
  • Active Directory Authentication Support
  • Multiple Users (with 2 permission levels, User and Administrator)
  • Security Logging
  • Account lock down after 5 failed logins
  • MySQL Database
  • Hashed (with SHA ) Account Passwords
  • Password Generator
  • Password Categories
  • Sharing Categories
  • HTTPs/SSL Supported

Go get it, only $US8-10 (depending on the way you purchase it).



Username: admin
Password: 1234

IPManager Invoicing

Michael Dale

Invoicing is just about complete! There are two more things that are not finished yet, PDF invoices and emailing the invoicing. Both will be pretty easy.

There were a few complex SQL queries to handle the tax calculations (and to have the total on the view all invoices page).

Here is what it looks like (click to see full size).

Fun with JQuery

Michael Dale

I am in the process of writing in invoicing support for IPManager (need to change the name of this app!). I've looked at Xero and Saasu but I'd still need to work out their API, and I don't like the idea of companies having access to my data, so I'm doing it myself :)

To do it nicely I need to use a bunch of JQuery so that you can easily add new line items on the fly (and calculate tax etc).

I've got it working just the way I want it, using a very long JQuery command! 

.val('').end().find('p').append('<a id="delete_item" class="button"

Here are a couple of screen shots:

Invoice Line Items

And here is the basic design that the clients will see:

I am pretty happy with it so far, lots of work to go though.

Bluetrait Event Viewer 1.9.2

Michael Dale

I've just released a new version of Bluetrait Event Viewer for WordPress.

The main new feature is an email alert option on Successful/Failed Logins. I've also updated some of the HTML to improve the display of the events widget.

This plugin has been downloaded almost 7000 times, which I think is pretty cool 

From going over the WordPress stats I think there are about 2000 active copies of the plugin running around the world.
