Chat:

This is a very simple chat widget.

  4. Messages will update automatically
  5. To clear the list of messages, click "clear". (Please be courteous and do not delete other user's messages without their permission.)

Todo

At time of writing this is a private project. Attempts to use it will require you to sign into my account. Unless something has changed, and I have made this page public, please don't attempt to use it.

Add a task:

  1. Enter your task where where it says "Task"
  2. Press enter
  3. Your task will be added to this page. In the future, I may figure out a way to add it to ms todo. APIs are scary.

Delete a task:

  1. Enter the number (shown to the left of the task) of the task you want to delete.
  2. Click "Delete".

Reorder a task:

  1. Enter the task's current number in "Task to move"
  2. Enter the position you want to move the task in "Position to move task"
  3. Click "Move"
  4. For example, to move task #8, to position #1, enter "8" in the first box, "1" in the second, and click move.

There may be an embedded todo list on this page also. This depends on the app I'm using at the time. I'm not writing instructions on all of the functionality of a given third party app. Your best bet is to google "<thing you want to do> in <app you're using>."

File Sharing

Upload a file:

  1. Click "Browse..."
  2. Select the file you want to upload.
  3. Click "Upload"
  4. The file will be saved to jforseth.tech and listed below.
