I want to change the username and password that my slash site uses to access
mysql. How can I do this?
Thank you for any help!

I am beginning to feel the need for a web based "To Do" list with which
I can keep track of various people's allocated tasks. Since it is for a slash site
it seems sensible to write a plugin for this.
I've had a look around and found a "Jobs" plugin written for the Barrapunto site back in July
except I can't download the plugin itself or see it in action. Oh dear.
I've also had a good look at chromatic's print plugin (which is very good by the way).
It is nice and clear, and I think I could have a go at writing a plugin myself.
(I've got a reasonable amount of perl cgi experience so I should be able to cope
with it if I get enough time.)
However what I need from you lot are some ideas as to what you might find useful
for your own slash sites.
The tasks *I* want to keep track of are that I give out review books to some of my users
and I want to keep track of who has yet to actually review them.
I'm happy creating one extra table which contains rows with
user, taskid, task description, status message, done boolean flag.
For the initial stage I will only allow the admin user to add, list, or delete tasks
for any user, and anyone else can see their own tasks.
Nothing too hard there -
Comments folks? Would you find this useful?

Sounds like a great idea but please name them something other than
"tasks" since that word's already used for the scripts that slashd
Put timestamps in the table too: time assigned, last update.
