Minor bug fix on 1.00 Alpha 3

UPDATE (2008-11-11) This can cause the system to silently and utterly fail in Firefox 3.  Please wait for a new fix or use some other browser.

Found an annoying bug when accessing BlowPass over a slow connection. It would render things before they were ready. Just changed the XHR to be synchronous. It’s just a temporary fix, denture and not mandatory, but if you get annoyed with things showing up before they are ready, just bust out your blowpass.js (compressed version), find line 21, and edit it so that you stick in Object.prototype.async=false; right between the s_log('  - Q: '+qstring,3); and the newXHR=new XHR(params) giving you: ...s_log('  - Q: '+qstring,3);Object.prototype.async=false;newXHR=new XHR(params)...

Development is a little hung up, as I’m extracting an AES algorithm from some GPL’d code and adapting it, as well as adding the whole “multiple-ciphers” thing, though I might drop the ability to have mixed algorithms on one site. Or I might make it a per-user setting. We’ll just see.

    Wow, this is awesome!!! I looked at a couple of solutions for this and it’s brilliant to see an open source solution – its got a nice clean interface but I think it could benefit from having some kind of dynamic search at the top similar to the one at PassPack.com. There is loads of examples of this kind of dynamic filtering out there but I have personally used this one before – http://www.vonloesch.de/node/23. I’m no PHP programmer (ASP and .NET is my thing) but I’m ok messing with html and javascript so thought I might try and implement it on your v1 alpha 3 – let me know if you are interested in the results!

    Absolutely, see what you can do! That’s the whole point of opening this thing up. Just be sure to submit your patches so that I can roll them into the system.

    […] old request was to add a filter tool to the item list. I finally got around to implementing this, and it works […]
