Tada list now served with umlauts.

31.03.2005 - 00:15 / filled under default

It is not as if I am only complaining about things. I just want them to work. A good example of what did not work was tada, the service for your free todo list. Which should get you into using (and paying) basecamp. But ... it was not able to keep umlauts. While I can read umlauts () in their us-ascii equivilent (oe ae ue ss), I do type them.

As they were not working properly, I left tada after a short testing period. But over the announcement of 'somethings coming! don't know when, don't know '- wait, no, that was something different.

Next try: Backpackit is announced:

Backpack helps you bring life's loose ends together
The next big thing from 37signals, the folks who brought you Basecamp, everyone's favorite web-based project management tool, and Ta-da List, the easiest-to-use to-do list manager.
I retested tada - and it does keep my umlauts now - great! We only have 2005, so silly me to expect a service like that to understand one of the most basic charsets ...

But, of course, also signed up for the new backpackit - as I am a curious person.

I am sure, the blank white screen after submittig my address was not supposed to be there but a nice confirm page, but hey ...
