Redesign 2017-01-01

We did a major redesign of the web pages. Things should look fine on mobile also now

New servers 2016-08-07

The database and frontend have been moved to better and faster servers. Issues with speed should be solved. Let me know if you notice any issues with the upgrades, or if you have any questions or comments.

Messaging system 2015-01-15

The site now has a messaging system to replace the old feedbacks. The messages function like the old system, except it requires the sender to be logged in. It no longer shows the email-address of the sender/recipient. The messages will now appear in a conversation-view that will let you reply and message back and forth.
There are quite a few other minor changes and new features. Poke around to see :)

Any questions or comments, feel free to let me know.

Google/Facebook login 2014-09-13

It's now possible to login with your Google or Facebook account. Existing users can link their diaries to their Google or Facebook account from the "Account"-page. New users can create a diary directly from the frontpage. This function is only for logging in, and will NOT post anything to Google or Facebook. As always, let me know if you have any qustions.

Custom date and time, revisited 2011-09

The public section of the diary will now display the user date instead of the submitted date. This way, you can backdate your entries and they will show in the correct order in the public section (if the diary is private). Private diaries are, of course, still private, and will not show in the public section.

Custom date and time 2011-04-09

I've added a custom datetime field for entries. The main purpose of this is to be able to backdate old diary entries from other media. I'm not quite done with implementing it everywhere, but it should be usable now. Let me know if you spot any problems.

New database server, updates 2011-03-02

The main database was moved to a better server, and it seems to be a lot faster. Let me know if you notice any errors or problems.

Redesign and CSS 2011-02-15

I've updated the first batch of design changes to the site. This should make the site a bit faster, and hopefully make it easier to add custom designs to it later on. It's a rather huge change, so let me know if you spot something that isn't quite right, or if you have any comments or suggestions :)

Restructure and changes 2010-27-08

I've started doing some major code rewrites. The result should be a faster and more stable site. Please let me know if you spot any errors or changes that you don't lilke
