    What was the job you moved from and why did you move? It always takes some time to move and feel comfortable in a new role, I understand that. It's only been a week and a half.

    Why? If I have a cheese from a different country I should be able to identify it right without having to create a login?

    Apple won’t budge on this I bet.

    It logs it against your cheeses in your profile though. That would count as an account based feature. They want people just to be able to search for cheeses without logging in or signing up, which is fair, but a lot of details on cheeses (the pairings and external links) are tailored for you, so we have to change all of the way this works as well.
    They didn't budge, and I'm not fighting, it'll take more time to argue than it will to make some changes.

    Oh yes, they're a good fun lot to deal with :D Hence why I was like, look, let's just change it. We can make it work in the way we want but satisfying their requirements and it shouldn't be too bad. So, here's hoping it won't take long.

    On the flip side, did a redesign on the VolAir app, added new features, removed others, complete overhaul to brand. Much prefer it, looks modern! Also called all the partners to make sure they're still on board and they are, so as soon as v2.0 Cheezus is out, this is going on while I work on building partners with Cheezus. #spinningplates

    I've started this virus period by completing one of the biggest mandates that we've worked on... but have had two dropouts during that period that have both swallowed up what would have been a very healthy profit :mad: Both things fell apart after contracts were signed and returned.

    The money is valuable at the moment given what's going on in the world but also as we were planning a big renovation, and the dropouts equate to about 1/3 the cost of it :(

    Going to be a challegning year I think. Lucky that I can work from home, I have a very good comprehensive sick pay package and I'm expecting a very solid bonus / payrise in the next 6 weeks.

    Mrs isn't so lucky, no paid sickpay, her hours are being slashed and there is risk of her store closing for an extended period meaning there is a lot less income coming in. I can bridge the gap with my salary if necessary but its going to set our plans back a bit.

    Worried about my mum, as a 60 a day smoker for the last 50 years who is now suffering with all the expected complications of that if she gets the virus she is basically ****ed.

    Will be intersting to see how the virus impacts our business, projections actually show an increase in profit as more people will be strapped for cash and purchasing our mandatory product on finance, and as we run our finance house that will actually be positive for income. On the other side though there are the projected parts shortages which is going to drive repair cost up. All very up in the air.

    You know what's going to happen don't you? lol

    I wanted to try it...

    01) I got CheezUs (Plugin_not_installed) on launch (iOS).
    02) Terms of Service doesn't load when clicked. (Signup screen)
    03) When I take a photo upload it, go back to camera screen (where it shows an advert) I can't get out of that menu screen.

    Thanks man, really appreciate those! I was aware of the top one, it's being sorted at the moment. I didn't know the other ones. Mind, I had a funny one with the menu bar first time I took a pic and then after that I closed and reopened the app and it was OK. But am looking at that at the moment. Seems iPhone specific.

    Also an error on the my cheeses page, but that's being sorted now. Should be done today or tomorrow. Hopefully now we can power through some updates and make it better until it's skynet :D

    haha don't worry, those were rejected before they hit the model :D

    I have in this next version, or maybe the one after as I've stacked this next major version heavily but anyway, coming up will be a feature so it works out first if it's cheese or not, if it's a cup or a person or flowers, it says "This appears to be a cup, not cheese, take a picture of cheese instead!" but that's more machine learning (can actually use googles image library for this and just pay a small amount per call, but still a fairly sizable feature) but think it's required because as we've seen... people :D haha some dude took a pic of their face and corrected it with their name. OK mate.

    haha they don't stay, so they come in like this (I was taking pics, I had my only trip out of the house allowed, so naturally I bought loads of cheese and beer): [​IMG]

    Then I check the corrected name, or if it's not corrected as it's a pic of what it is, just simply mark it ready for training or delete. If any more great ones come in I'll get them up though.

    Bug fixes done for Android, dark mode added too and app was upgraded to ionic 5 from 4. Update to iOS fixing some bugs will be pushed hopefully today with the same stuff. Hoping to keep a rhythm with it all now.

    A global pandemic was not part of my reasoning, however I feel even better about making the switch now.

    To those contractors on here, I hope you have a war chest built up and are able to continue working.
