Stickety Version 1.3 in the App Store Today!

Yay! The new version is in the app store today!

Version 1.3 adds a bunch of new things including:

  • Redesigned interface with full sticket feed and sticket thread layouts so you can see entire images at a glance
  • Faster scrolling feeds
  • Do more actions right from the feed screen like pan and zoom, play video, etc
  • Easier to hit buttons everywhere and more space in between elements for fatter fingers :-)
  • View the latest few comments right from the main feed
  • View comments with images and videos inline together with the original sticket post 
  • Disappearing top and bottom bars to give you more room to browse content when scrolling 
  • Open alert notifications in the context of the sticket that they relate to
  • View where commenters commented from
  • Auto-complete username feature so you don't have to remember the exact spelling of the person you're replying to

What's a Moonfish?

I went to T&T Supermarket tonight to get a large salmon to use for the bikini but found out when I got there that they close up and start cleaning the seafood section before the rest of the store closes. The guy behind the counter told me that they don't kill fish after 8:30pm and I would do best to go look in the frozen section. So I went over to the frozen section somewhat deflated.

I was not disappointed when I got there. Since T&T is an Asian supermarket, they carry a whole load of things that are not usually found here. That includes fish. I found a bag with three frozen Moonfish from Vietnam for $3.99 and their skin was shiny and silvery, almost like a silver foil had been gilded onto the fish. That would make a really nice looking swimsuit. Plus, the shape of the fish is so tall and disk-like that it looks like each half of it could become a breast cup.

So yeah, I bought the Moonfish. Here they are defrosting in a bowl.

They smell a lot like sardines and I guess their skin is a lot like a sardine too. They're like giant disk-shaped sardines.

So, I basically filleted them and then used a shell to scrape off all the meat from the skin.

Unfortunately, it looks like the shininess kind of just rubs off when I move it around enough so maybe Moonfish won't be so good after all. At least this time I removed pretty much all the meat and it smells much less fishy. My kitchen on the other hand smells like a fishmonger's shop.

I guess we'll just see what we have when it comes out of the piss.
