Startups - I can multitask right?

One of my co-founders of CrowdQuests / HackSauce has rightly pointed out that my last post was saying I am only focusing on one Startup.  Well I was.  But then we did GovHack 2018... and started up a new startup CrowdQuests which is something I find we at Transport for NSW need and I'm sure other data hungry organisations also need.  We've often talked about getting data more accurate and crowdsourced to keep costs low.  So now there is such a company and app that does that.  CrowdQuests :)

So CrowdQuests is the product and HackSauce is the organisation that has the four founders attached to it.  I say attached as we have it currently as a partnership with the 4 companies that each of the founders is a sole director of as partners.  I know confusing, right?  But it works for us and we are likely to incorporate HackSauce to make things a bit easier when submitting tenders and quotes and proposals.

More about CrowdQuests and what we are doing in a different post when I have a bit more time... but I also started a new blog which may or may not become a 'thing'... because I've been following a ketogenic diet for the last couple of months.  The blog is Keto4Asians.  It's a resource for me to share my keto stuff and knowledge.  And will obviously have a bent towards Asian related foods.  But I just blog about whatever.  I've also set up a matching Twitter and Instagram account.  Let's see what happens with it but it's meant to be a low effort (mainly because of my interest) activity and also helps me keep motivated in following the keto-esque diet.  I am doing what they call "lazy keto" as I am not tracking much except estimating in keeping my net carbs under 20 grams.

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

The Croissant Diet Experience with a CGM - Sept 2020

I've been on the bandwagon of The Croissant Diet (TCD) for a little while.  Maybe 6 weeks or so.  And I thought I should document things a bit. There was a great summary by Brad Marshall on Twitter on what The Croissant Diet actually is: Eat LOTS of long chain Saturated Fat and avoid PUFA like the plague. Also avoid MUFA. If you want to eat some starch, go for it! But smother them in SatFat. That’s the whole thing, really. — FireInABottle (@fire_bottle) September 21, 2020 What I'm eating: Meat - beef or lamb mostly as this is low in PUFAs and high in stearic acid. Fats for cooking - tallow or butter.  Enhanced with stearic acid.   Eggs - cos they are a great whole food.  Usually cooked in tallow or butter (enhanced with stearic acid if I remember). Butter Cream for tea Coffee - usually black Low carb "carbs" -- Atkins crispbread and Woolworths Macro bread. These have vegetable oils so not great but I try and overwhelm it with lots of butter.  But generally not some
