It’s been a great day. We spent all afternoon in town doing a Pokémon go research day, then Helen and I played King of Tokyo for a while.

Also, I finally got around to building my Lego roller skate 🛼😅

I’m experimenting with a new email setup (for the imminently-launching Neatnik ID setup) and could really use some help testing email deliverability. If you have a spare moment and would like to test, just send an email to testing@email.engineering with any subject line and any message body.

I’m mostly concerned with ensuring that you receive a reply within 15 seconds, and that the reply winds up in your inbox (not spam/junk).

Thanks in advance if you’re able to help test! :prami_happy:

@adam Two minutes, no reply yet. Dreamhost mail box, mail.app on iPhone

@adam I'm just logged into it and checking a few things. Webmail hasn't filtered anything by the looks of it.

Do you know the Klingon proverb that tells us 'Quiche is a dish that is best served…

@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@anniegreens haha, flaky pastry is the best. I never used to like quiche until I tried vegan ones. I think maybe it was the texture.

I don’t understand people with like two apps on their Home Screen.

Whatever they’re using their phone for is going to take more swipes to even access 🤔

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@bixfrankonis wow, that’s some organisational skills right there! When you need to open an app that’s not on the Home Screen, do you search for it or access the App Library?

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@bixfrankonis Yes, I do find that the App Library is really good at suggesting what apps I’m likely to be using. I don’t use search as much as I should though

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@barrysampson I've now started to do this myself, that and swiping across to the app library :)

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@pauls I seem to use too many though lol. I have put the most-used on the home screen though, and am going to use search and the app library to find others.

@superdavey sounds ideal. I’ve only just started using the recommended widget, it seems to be quite accurate, spookily lol

I woke up at 3am. So far, I’ve played Pokémon Go, Disney Spell Struck and some white noise on Noisli 😅

Been left to my own devices for the last few days. Weather was rubbish so stayed in built Sadly have now reached the tragic point of having no more sets left to build 😭😭. Alas, it’s my birthday tomorrow, maybe the birthday fairy will bring me some more🧚

@TheTiredHiker Oh wow, you built the Vespa! That's very nice!

(I've still not built my roller skate lol)

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@TheTiredHiker Aww, shame about finishing it all! Nice to have built sets to look at though.

What camera did you put on your list the 3 in 1 or the Polaroid? They are both cute.

I will definitely remember to take photos of the rollerskate :)

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@TheTiredHiker Ah sorry... I misunderstood! That's a very nice camera! I have a Nikon DSLR, but it's quite old now.

Interesting about the barefoot... I've read good things about them, although I've never tried barefoot myself. I'm soooooo not a runner, like at all haha.

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@TheTiredHiker Aww, sorry to hear that. Hope you get the nice new Canon one!

Do you find that the barefoot shoes make your feet tired quicker or do you slowly get used to them?

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@TheTiredHiker That's interesting actually... I spend a lot of time indoors too, and gave up on slippers years ago as they never last, so barefoot, or at least with socks on lol. Might be worth a try 🤔

Thanks for the info!

andycarolan,
@andycarolan@social.lol avatar

@TheTiredHiker Awesome! Thanks.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow btw!

@moshibar Then you probably shouldn't use these badges. I am going to make more badges though, and am open to theme requests 😊
