Fast post just to let you know I’ve updated MyTaH Firefox extension.

Release notes

  • Now monitoring also:
    • Number of tiles uploaded
    • Number of KB uploaded
    • Idle Time
    • Tiles remaining to gain a better rank
  • All the monitors are shown as a tooltip when the mouse is over the MyTaH extension
  • In the Preferences dialog you can select which monitor you want to see in the status bar

  • Now my account is no longer the default one. If no user account is requested in the preferences dialog a “No name” warning will appear in the status bar

Furthermore, I’ve taken an account at Mozilla Addon and submitted my extension. Now it’s in the sandbox waiting for review… I hope (after any eventual fix they’ll ask me) to have it published before or then 🙂

MyTaH Firefox extension

As I’ve told some weeks ago, I was starting to develop a little Firefox extension to monitor my own Tiles@Home ranking from this page. I was totally new on Firefox extension developing, but I’ve managed to do something working and useful in a few time anyway 🙂

As you can see in this post’s image, MyTaH will sit in your Firefox’s status bar, displaying your current ranking (by number of tiles). Clicking with the right mouse button, you can view “Preferences” or “About” dialog (which you can see in the post’s image as well). In the Preferences dialog window you can write your username or your user id, and how often (in minutes) you want your ranking be fetched and updated. Please be aware that, by default, you’ll see my actual ranking. Not perfect, but… release early release often 🙂

Enjoy!
