A while back I wrote a post about using Google docs as an expense tracker. The post received a lot of great feedback and so when I wanted to learn about Google App Engine I decided the best way was to create a Google app that connects to my Google docs to let the user easily add expenses. This would solve the problem I had with the original Google expense tracker that anyone could add an expense to my spreadsheet. The result of this is eyecost released under the gpl (I had wanted to use the agpl but I don’t think that that is an option since it connects to Google servers) you can download eyecost here. The problem I am having is that if I do a lot of spreadsheet editing the Google App Engine times out.
Anyone know how I can get around this?
