GarageSale Dashboard Widget improved

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Ever since Apple added Dashboard to Mac OS X in 2005, GarageSale has shipped with a Dashboard widget, that shows eBay sellers how their items are selling quickly.

While our widget worked pretty well in general, a few of its shortcomings that surfaced throughout the years made us start work on a complete rebuilt. Therefore we are introducing today version 5 of the GarageSale dashboard widget:

The GarageSale dashboard widget is now completely self contained and doesn’t require a separate background process anymore. It works for users who authorized their eBay account for use with either GarageSale or GarageSale Basic.

The new widget downloads your current selling status only when the Dashboard is invoked. This reduces your Mac’s CPU and network usage and will certainly make eBay’s API server team happy.

The widget is available for download on this page.

Free Image Uploads Temporary unavailable

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Dear GarageSale Users,

because of a scheduled maintenance downtime, uploading new auction images to GarageSale’s Free Image Server will not be available for you during the following time period:

Australia (Sydney): 23.Nov, 9:00 a.m. – 23.Nov, 9:00 p.m.
Central Europe (Berlin): 22.Nov, 23:00 – 23.Nov, 11.00
USA (New York): 22.Nov, 5:00 p.m. – 23.Nov, 5:00 a.m.
USA (San Francisco): 22.Nov, 2:00 p.m. – 23.Nov, 2:00 a.m.

Auction images uploaded prior to that time period are not affected. These images will be served from a fail-over machine.

Our primary server’s hosting provider is moving its datacenter to a new building in a different city. We are using the opportunity to put additional hard drives into the server.

If you need to start auctions during the maintenance period, we suggest you configure GarageSale to use a different image hosting option or to perform the image upload prior to the downtime by submitting the auction to eBay using eBay’s scheduling option.

This temporary outage will effect GarageSale, GarageSale Basic, GarageSale HD on iPad, and GarageSale Touch on iPhone – but only if they are set to use GarageSale’s Free Image server for image storage.

We are sorry for any inconveniences this causes for you.
