@Marvelxy @cw00dw0rd @tmcnulty @lylycarrillo and everyone else, I’ve created this thread based on discussion at our last video call.

Can you please use this thread for posting your updates and use his format:

  1. Post the date at the top (if its not the same as the post above it) with a # in front to turn it into a title
  2. Post you name in bold by adding two ** in front and behind it so the thread is easy to browse.

Its been a quiet and uncomfortable week for me as me and my wife both i came down with Covid hard. We’ve both had the booster vaccine so i was really surprised at how rough it was tbh and i’ve mostly focused on successfully crawling from the bed to the toilet this week.

Outside of that important achievement i have:

  • Created a draft for two new chapters in our Whitepaper and posted them live, based on discussions with @lylycarrillo. You are welcome to review them and suggest additions/edits, especially as some are very light and just placeholders waiting for your input input. Its chapters 7 and 8, and i’ve also updated chapter 6.
  • Created the timeline above of our major pre-launch challenges. Can anyone suggest anything else?
  • Worked on the web notifications. No solution yet, but i’m closer and will keep working on it.
  • Arranged a Public Happiness event with the local council in Setubal where i live as i’m working towards a collaboration to get some test users live on the Local side of our platforms.
  • Solved the windows inside windows bug with @Marvelxy and @syl
  • Continuing to seek venues and a team to help build and run our Launch Party Hacks
  • Some general forum/admin improvements and updates including solving the long standing images in banners issue which broke our platform formatting and added thumbnail images besides threads to make the forum look more appealing.
  • Successfully crawled to the toilet during 7 days of utter unpleasantness

Sorry @AndyatFocallocal , I hope you both get well soon. It’s strange that people are still getting covid after all the shots :man_facepalming:. I can only say “big pharma” are using us as their lab rats and making money at the same time :man_shrugging:

I’ve not had any covid vaccine, and I’ve not got covid. Lucky me I guess.

The stats on death rates are pretty clear between vaccinated and unvaccinated. Some people get lucky, others don’t. I hope you will be, and it’s great that you’ve been being careful.

I would guess that I would have been in hospital now without it as it hit me so hard. My wife’s was a little less severe and she shook it off in 2.5 days, while I was down with fever and a migraine that made thinking about anything a real challenge for a week.

I hope you carry on staying safe :slight_smile:

You are right, I’ve seen it for myself. Well, I will eventually take the vaccine at some point. But for now, I will keep being careful.

All good. I’m glad you both are doing great now :slight_smile:

Hi all, I had to travel for business and then unfortunately also came back with covid so I have been a bit unavailable for the past few weeks. I will try and give setting up the local environment another shot.

@Marvelxy has there been any further progress on the Flutter app?

@jmarks.joshua has just made a PR which should make setting up a dev environment easier. Its waiting for Tom to review it before it goes live, but i’d suggest you add it to your build as it will probably help :slight_smile:

Sorry to hear you’ve been down with Covid @cw00dw0rd. I had it 2 weeks back too and it was horrible. Excited to see the app coming together.

Sorry to hear you got covid. Get well soon @cw00dw0rd

Well, I’m not done setting up my Flutter workspace. I will complete the setup soon and start the iOS version.

@cw00dw0rd , do we have tasks created for the mobile version? I’m happy to do a brain storming session just in case :slight_smile:
