Martijn Made an overview of mobile phones I own(ed), then spent way too much time building a way to visually represent their change in size. Had to brush up on my geometry. licit.li/_static/p...
Brendan Murty Ah, very cool, I'd say it's worth the effort!

Cv Does anyone else remember Pownce?
Brendan Murty I thought it had a unique style, but if I remember rightly, it ultimately died due to lack of users. Let's not let that happen to Sublevel.

Brendan Murty Didn't know this was possible! "The average person has three cones, which enables him to see about one million colors. But Antico has four cones, so her eyes are capable of picking up dimensions and nuances of color" popsci.com.au/scie...
Martijn I knew some fish had advanced eyes, and always thought cephalopods had some of the best, but this is great! For more eye-fun, check the Mantis Shrimp (theoatmeal.com/com...)
🙄 Doug Belshaw Awesome! This reminds me of some attempts to bio-hack the ability to see the infra red spectrum: experiment.com/u/a...
Martijn Can't WP pin websites to their home screen otherwise? That sounds like an incredibly stupid thing!
Brendan Murty They can, but the process creates an awkward thumbnail of the whole page by default. This way the tile will have the correct Sublevel icon (sublevel.net/stati...) as the tile. However, there are other methods, like I've setup for UpcomingTasks: upcomingtasks.com/...

Brendan Murty Submitted to the WebApps directory, this should make it easier for Windows Phone users to pin the website to their home screens! windowsphone.com/e...

🉑 Vincent Leeuw This resonated with me. I've dabbled in game design, gamification, (technical) writing, graphic design and marketing. There's a lot I can do, but there's little I can say about it upfront. Usually I find a spot within a new organisation and simply grow into one or more directions. The downside is that organisations often don't realise this and I find myself being put aside as a cost cutting measure. It's hard to make apparent what role you are fulfilling if people can't place you into a box. Then again, I'd wouldn't want to be able to fit in such a box to start with.
Brendan Murty It certainly is the nature of jobs these days, if you can assist in a way that is outside of your role why not do that? A good leader should notice these kind of actions by employees and encourage those "mortar" roles.

John Wilson I'm reminded of our building lift - "Floor: minus one"
Brendan Murty Terrible programming there!

Martijn gets a follow for being a schnitzel reviewer. I don't know why I never thought of that job!
Brendan Murty Thanks! It's not really a job, it's a state of mind :P For more information, check out schnitmydadsays.com (website will be getting an update in the next few weeks)
