Basecamp continues to thwart my efforts to make it usable

I thought I'd sussed a good workflow:

Set up ToDo lists that are clearly named at the start of a project so we can establish a good workflow with the client.

I had something like:

"Requested Tasks"
"Active Tasks"
"Completed Tasks"

with the intention that you drag ToDo items from one to another as you need to.

But no - too bloody easy. Of course that won't work.

Basecamp hides empty ToDo lists so the minute the last item is dragged out of one, it is no longer there to drag new items into. Thus confusing the client and spoiling my workflow.

And no setting to change this behaviour because 37signals doesn't believe in settings. (I partially concur in theory but usually end up hating it in real-life)

To my mind the solution would be making hiding a ToDo an explicit action. There's a tiny cost in user effort but it's conceptually simple and increases the flexibility of the system.

Grrrr.

Is there any way to turn off 'picture in picture' without:

a) using the mouse/trackpad
b) turning on another video source

Indeed. As much as DB is a friend to skeptics in some arenas, he is rather ethically dubious in others.

I'm not a Winamp user any more but this should really happen.
Petition to save Winamp or its source code initiated by software developers.

"REST is nice if you don't mind rolling your own protocol and then being sniped at by folks who insist that it isn't proper REST, or trying to get the details on someone else's protocol and being told that you would already know if you actually understood REST."

They've got some really mixed reviews online but our takeaway was excellent. As good as any I've had in Brighton recently and better than quite a few.
