hi all - what are you working on?

Ha. The most over the top project ever but it's mostly for a portfolio and partly because I love doing fun home automation (as you know) and other crazy home things.
So... it started out. I love loose tea. I've gone crazy lately buying loose tea.
Then I found a loose tea of the month kinda thing.
So I started a spreadsheet. All the teas I've tried and if me and the roomie like it or not.
Then.... the spreadsheet got bigger... price per 2ounce, where it's from etc.
So.... I decided to turn that into a database which i can access from a webapp on a kitchen tablet. "What tea is on hand?" "What tea is caffiene free" "What are the ingredients" "Check a box to order more " "Send Lily and email with all the tea she needs to reorder" "What kind of sweetener works best?"
And once you pick a tea... press a button and a timer auto starts.

What I've got so far. Just tryin' to get a MVP done so I can use a timer on the tea I'm brewing while I write something more featured xD

Yes. I loooove that place. If you have your student id, it's 10% off at the radnor store. I also have some discount cards for that location. I usually order online though.

and best of all - it's purple!
Lily Romano

And it's VERY purple.
Roommate says it was sweet and yummy when I asked him to describe it xD
all I need now is the timer to get the MVP functional and I'll have something to use while building the full bit xD

will the timer automatically select different brewing times recommended for each blend?

yupyup. Whatever that rec # is at the bottom
That field is a formula. There is a place to set "preferred" brew time. If that's blank, it takes the high end of the steep range (that is the time I usually use).
right now it's the "formula" steep time under preferred steep time as we haven't set any preferred ones xD and won't until the app is running. lol I just don't feel like dealing with the UNDEFs in the code just yet.
nevermind >.> fixed it. </lazy>
'<p>Preferred Steep: ' + (record.get('Preferred Steep') || record.get('Steep Time') ) + '</p>'

now preferred can just be used to override the max value of the steep range

Well, I have a timer that counts down now based on the steep time. Just need to get the noise part done xD
