How 3 hours can turn into 11

Yeah... I was supposed to release some features about 8 hours ago. Then fiber went down everywhere - even cell towers were cut off. It's been a nightmare, yet here I am. And I bring gifts... So now you'll notice a link atop of the Recent Riser Rankings that reads Sign in or register - upon clicking on it it will take you to a Google accounts sing in page, and afterwards it will give you the option to see how many shares you own on each share that shows on the rankings spreadsheet.

This is a very simple function, but it's the underlying gem that really gets me all excited. User account integration will allow Recent Empire to deliver you personalized solutions tailored to fit your needs! It's a brave new world out there on Empire Avenue. To test it out head on to http://2.latest.recentempire.appspot.com it's really very primitive - so do so with that in mind. Let me hear any about quirks, blips or blops you find! Thanks!

  2. Oops try that again. Looks really great, but not working for me...

    Traceback (most recent call last):

    KeyError: 'data'

  3. It's since been fixed. Thanks for your input. Sorry I took long to answer - Seems blogspot wasn't alerting me of comments.
