Hmm we've 7 classes running today and the boss thought there's only 2 classes so you can image what the morning is like :fb-laugh: got 3 homeworks due tonight so there's that :sadparrot: and I gotta make a BigCommerce app for a cheap client :angrycry: and its been 25 days since I last commuted to my project :sad_pepe: and I haven't play with the cute fpga for a few days now :fb-sad: yup that's a lotta ands 🤣
I wanted to try making something different to my usual, so I tried to draw Ray in a vintage animation art style. Definitely needs some work but I’m happy with it :D
I wonder if I can keep a streak going this time...
I disassembled the Tourist framework - it's the annoying little notification that pops up whenever you update to the newest OS. It has some more things going on though than just sending a notification, which I can't figure out.
I've been learning ML/data science since 5 months now and I realised my methods of actually learning it was not very good. So now I create a repo to keep track of what I learned and also practice, it can also serve as a reference. Currently I'm adding already completed topics and projects.
missed out on getting a fancy domain for your scrapbook? wish you had more custom domains? well your in luck today!
i have create a quick and easy tool that creates a vercel project which acts as a proxy for your scrapbook profile allowing you to set a custom domain.
so how to do it?
1. head to hack.af/scrapbook-domain. follow the steps provided.
2. once you’ve deployed the project you will see a screen saying Congratulations!, wait a couple of seconds and you’ll be redirected to the domains page.
3. Add the domain you’d like using Vercel’s built in instructions
4. Hoorah! You’ve done it!
the setup for this wild midnight project is at: github.com/sampoder/scrapbook-redirect
go crazy with your domains!
today was so tiring. I passed two rounds of interviews, studied for midterms, did a bunch of other work and now I feel like a soggy run over French fry :^) at least everything went really well tho :)))))
👋 Helloooo everyone!
Ricey here back at it again with another shippy ship for @paevik! Back during the dinosaur era (i.e. last week) in the mvp, there was just the bare minimum: you could only create entries and post them to #journal.
Now, @paevik is a fully-fledged app for journalling! V1 includes super cool things like searching by ID and Date, custom files (encoded in blocks bc Slack is stupid), a timeline view in the homepage, and some username trickery! Everything in the backend’s been refactored too—an API is in the works, and everything is super secure too!
Some really awesome things are in the pipeline for the next version (I’ve decided to hold off on implementing anonymous journal entries for now), like:
• Journal entries from #scrapbook entries
• Notifications & custom feeds (you’ll be able to subscribe to other users’ public entries)
• An API + website for exploring
For now, you can get started by running /entry , or going over to #journal to see what everyone’s doing! :parrot_love: 📝 📚
It’s been a lot of fun building Paevik, and I can’t wait to see what y’all will write about! A really special thank you to everyone that helped me test this monstrous creation—it really helped a lot :)
As always, you can find the source over at github.com/rishiosaur/paevik :D
Got my lab kit today for my class :yay: it's an 8-bit AVR RISC designed by my school :osu: where we're gonna reverse engineer it and learn how to build one :parrot: both Kevins would be interested :fb-laugh:
Intense dark night-time scenes are the most fun to draw
And difficult...like actually this was kinda difficult
Also this is part of a new spinoff story I’m working on to go alongside my wip game’s story, the guy in the picture is an engineering and maths teacher
Made an algorithm for my store manager app to store all invoice details in a string (in a db) which can be used to get the complete pdf anytime! (Usage: a tonne of invoices can be stored in a very very small space)
Today I took a practice SAT and did pretty bad, and I also organized my desk. Also feeling pretty good about robotics stuff - we got a bunch of new members and now, we're actually planning out what we're gonna do before doing it. Turns out stuff is easier when everyone is on the same page 😂
Accidentally barged into a zoom but I made a friend so ¯\(ツ)/¯. Finished 18.03 pset, did 6.004, 6.036, 6.046 quizzes today. Midterm for 004 coming soon so I’ll have to grind extra hard this weekend :,)))
Went through all the courses on Students Who Code and wrote a list for each one on things to change or update, so the courses are better and make sense.
Also have a meeting tonight tonight to hopefully get my schools hack club going!
I’m (almost too) excited to ship Frame 🖼️, our SOM project we’ve completed.
🦑 What is it? Previously named Smart Album Cover Display, Frame, which sits on your wall, displays the music you’re listening to. It either uses the Spotify API or detects the music you’re listening to with microphones.
🐳 It’s been a good summer! With all the support from Hack Club we were able to complete this, and I am currently working on a Flutter App to configure settings (currently it’s a react site).
🐝 What’s the purpose? We see it as art. I truly spend hours each day just looking at it (the beauty is not apparent in the photos). Music truly is a beautiful thing.
🍀 Want to make your own? We’re working on a hardware guide. The code is, of course, open source. Contact us with questions.
We couldn’t have done this without Hack Club 🎉 💓
p.s. here is Blonde by Frank Ocean, KIDS SEE GHOSTS by KIDS SEE GHOSTS, Yellow Submarine by The Beatles and Nothing Was The Same by Drake. We’ve also implemented a clock when paused (with custom colors 🎨) and auto-brightness with a light sensor.
Almost forgot to post today, I made some sketches of a spin-off story I’m working on (and started a full illustration of one part) but I forgot to take a picture so here’s a vintage cartoon style Elise I made yesterday
Trying to keep a streak is harder than I anticipated
Early this morning, I had the privilege of sitting back stage and watching the Adafruit Show & Tell happen! Truly remarkable seeing all the projects alive, sad we didn't have time for more! Thank you to everyone who presented, the wonderful Adafruit team for making it possible, @vera for pinging the channel and my Grab driver who subbed in for the MRT and got me to school just on time :D
It just felt really nice sitting there and watching with everything happening on it's own, I really enjoyed it so thank you!
Big ship: you can now order yourself a new card right on Bank, including virtual cards! Virtual cards can be generated instantly & used for online transactions, no waiting for shipping. If you haven’t ordered yourself a new card, it’s right on your Cards page now. (Personally, super happy with the design of this!)
finished thinking about my algorithms pset, going to finish writing it up tomorrow! Also did part of my computer architecture lab and got a few good emails. This is my schedule for tomorrow and I’m honestly so psyched to have such a chill day (but I’ll have a lot of work to do so rip)
