I think I need some kind of alarm to remind me to take my pre-lunch medication (1 hour before food). Cos otherwise I end up having a really late lunch.

I've decided, cos it might be useful to folk, to work on making my trainable RSS feed aggregator multiuser. Except I don't want random plebs on the internet coming along and using it, so I'm going to have to think of how I can restrict access to cool folk like you guys, without you having to pester me for access.



Some kind of automatic thing so if you send an email with a given header to a signup address it automagically sends you back your access info? That way only people who know to use the email thing can get access, but it's handled automatically so you don't have to do it manually. Would that be possible?
A recurring reminder in Outlook or via the alarm function of your mobile?

*shudders* Ewww...I feel tainted - you mentioned Outlook ;)

Have you thought about using OpenID. It lets people authenticate with third party sites using their LJ identity. It also lets people authenticate using other sites, but I think only LJ support it.

You could check your FOAF file (or something) to see if they claim to be someone who is cool. Then, if you agree that person is cool, you can use OpenID to confirm that they really are that person.

Yes! You genius! That's exactly what I'll do. I've already got code written that implements it too, so it won't be too much hassle.

*goes off to code*
