A B testing - in real life

How many times have you tested two items to find out your preference?  I do it all the time.  From trying to find out which tea is better to evaluating two priorities.  As an exercise for my coding learning I want to create a web app or app that does the simple A/B test in real life.

I've bought a domain for it - preferlab.com - and could even potentially monetise it in a number of ways.

But first I want to build an MVP version.  Myself.  Somehow!

Mainly for my own purposes to track things I test.

Like for Cookies and Cream ice cream.  Blue Ribbon was a bit disappointing.  Woolworths Select is better.  So in the model for my simple site it would be:

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
A. Blue Ribbon Cookies and Cream
B. Woolworths Select

B wins.

But I'm sure Bulla is a bit better.  The Aldi one is pretty good too.  But I'll have to wait till I can do a direct comparison before I add it to my list!

Will did a test the other day on Dry Ginger Ale.  Schwepps vs the Woolworths brand.  At 75c apparently it's so close so it will win on pure price alone!

Currently overthinking things.  On how to build it.  Could be a sign of procrastination.  Simple admin dashboard style using a theme?  Trying to apply some basic Javascript to Bootstrap buttons? Somehow using Google Firebase?  Something else?

What do you think?  Do you do any A/B testing?  Any ideas on what I should use / consider to code this up?

Fitness Passport membership locations on a map

My Fitness Passport membership is now live!  Woohoo!  So I get access to a heap of gyms and pools and classes.  For someone who isn't interested in a gym membership I'm not quite sure why I have joined!!  Peer pressure. I'm very fortunate that I have the opportunity to join this type of membership as then I can go just about anywhere in NSW.  The membership site gives you a list of them but I had no idea how close they would be to either work or home so I copied and pasted the details into a Google Sheet and then put them in a Google Map.  I thought it may be useful for others too. You can access the map by this link too:  ​ https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=10hH5PtKlBzeEzV6AoLev4vxqNoDxzR6y&hl=en&usp=sharing

Magic Mirror - IKEA frame hack

Somehow I stumbled on the Magic Mirror project and of course I wanted to build it.  Forget that I was in the middle of another mirror project (still not finished) but this one is now built! Here is the finished product (still a bit messy as I put a small console type table under the mirror):  The console table was added... as I needed to hide the power point from my dogs who like munching on power cables if too accessible.  Before I mounted it on the wall I had it propped up on a dining room chair...  There are plenty of resources on how to get the magic mirror tech side of things done.  The key resource is the Magic Mirror site: https://magicmirror.builders/   I've also used Google a lot and Jayen helped me a lot too on various bits and pieces.   The main thing that is different is the way I put the frame/mirror component together.  Here are the high level details (oxymoron?): 1. bought mirror tint from Aliexpress https://www.aliexpress.com/item/50x100cm-W

Trip to Kenta

Had lunch with Nikki at Kenta on Thursday 29 Dec 2005. Food was OK, but definitely cheap! Good value. I had the sashimi lunch set which included sashimi, salmon salad, rice and miso soup. Was very full! Meal was approx $10 - $11... here's a pic of what I ate. Nikki had the teriaki chicken and calamari rings meal. That looked good too. And someone at a table next to us had a soft shell crab tempura set. Oooh if only I spotted that :)
