Twins?3 May 2022Twins? If you head over to our new sister app, Pubs in Town, it will look rather familiar.The sisters have the same parent!From Lemonrock, I have re-used the database, filing system, security, photo software, CRM/email and much of the logic that I had written from scratch over the years, while designing Lemonrock.I have always loved pubs, and I know a lot about how they work.I'm also concerned about their well-being, and their place in our unique British culture. So, Pubs in Town is my offering to the world of social media, designed to make it easy for pubs to get all their events out there, in one easy-to-use app. There are 8 categories that pubs can advertise their events in - Food & Drink, Beer, Live Music, Quiz, Disco/Karaoke, Comedy, Social Event and Sport.Pubs who sign up to Pubs in Town get their Lemonrock gigs included automatically.Punters who sign up (for free) on the app will get instant push alerts to their smartphones about all the events they are interested in. They can also rate pubs and write reviews to help others find the right kind of pub. There is a neat filter that will help you find exactly the type of pub you're looking for. Pubs with real ale, pubs with cocktails, pubs with Gluten-Free, Vegan and Veggie food, pubs with accessible toilets and real fires, pubs with gardens and covered seating.It's been a long road. Pubs in Town has taken a big 10-month chunk out of my life, and I truly hope it will benefit pubs and pub-goers alike.Please use it. Please join as Pub Owners or Pub Goers, write reviews, suggest new pubs, create your own pub crawls, and discover new pubs and new events in your town, or whatever towns you visit in the UK.https://pubsintown.co.ukCheers,Mac, father of two (apps)
DVD TV Android Madness22 Apr 2022DVD TV Android Madness TL;DR : Modern DVD technology sucksSo, I still have DVDs. Yes, how old-fashioned, I hear you say.But I love being able to play the movies (sorry, films) that I really like. Like I love to play the CDs I really like. And walk through the park that I really like.Before I got this really clever Android TV, I would just put a DVD in the tray, and press play, and I would watch the film (sorry, movie).Not any more.I have now spent 2 days trying to watch a favourite DVD of mine on my Android TV, and it refuses to play it. However, it is very happy to play the adverts and trailers on the DVD. Perhaps if I had the patience to wade through 5 / 10 / 20 minutes of banal, irrelevant adverts, I would have finally been able to watch my film. But I demand to exercise my right not to watch adverts on a DVD I already own.Next? I can't walk through my favourite park without taking a 20 minute questionnaire about my motivation for going for my walk, or my opinion of the Spring flowers growing there. This is getting very, very silly.Tonight's results: I had to abandon the TV / DVD, because it refused to play my film. I'm now listening to a CD I really like. So far, no adverts. But I do worry that some semi-forgotten actor from the naughties will interject a new commercial verse into the middle of my favourite Aimee Mann song.Back to vinyl, then.___Mac, a free bird
