Remaking a super old song I made last year My pull request to the GitHub CLI got merged!👋 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 :)
If no one else is online, open up multiple browser tabs and test it out! Attached is a demo video!
(i made it in 20ish min so idk if there are any glitches, also sorry no mobile support as it needs a keyboard)I wanna try learning a new language just for fun 🙂Notes from todays english class!Just preparing for papers solving some sample questionToday is the last day of my internship at Bottomline Technologies! Because of this I created a recap of my internship experience in a short blog post on my GitHub profile: github.com/Matt-Gleich/Matt-Gleich/blob/master/posts/experience/2020-internship.mdLooking how objdump, binary files and disassembling binary files works. I have no clue but very curious and looking for resourcesdid lots of school stuff (eg going to school), made a picrew, gonna read up on tensorflow stuff later :3Working more on an event with @winston so excited to host the first Students Who Code event and can't wait to share it with everyone!!I uploaded my bot coding to Github-- First repository!Shipped the first version of
/z today on #hack-night. Proud of this and have a lot of ideas to make it better.Haven't done much except watching funny videos on Facebook for like the whole day, so here's my homework from yesterday... the professor is insane that's the single most source transformations I have to do for a single circuit, if you try to solve using wye to delta transformation you'll end up with a voltage source parallel to the resistor which is no way to get the Thevenin voltage...Started arranging the hardware, one more pack arriving today! Yeah!😊👍🤘Giving Final touch to list👀 putting this here before it all goes downhill lol
Today I ran what I called the "The Great Race Across Singapore" with my Student Council friends as a team building activity! How it worked that there were teams placed in secret locations and they had to go through a series of challenges to reach the "final location" on the other side of the island which was the Merlion in Marina Bay but they didn't know that.
Here's how it worked:
Each team had 4 council members and one council leader. The council members were each given a store number that they had to go to in he Yishun Mall. Then the council leaders were all separated from their team together at Yishun Station. To come together they need to communicate through their location with only emoji.
Then once they have met, they receive a cryptic message:
My name is TRY***PA, call me maybe? . When they type this word into their phone, it will call me. I then read out the following message:
1°21'53.2"N 103°50'27.8"E, but bigger.
If you head to 1°21'53.2"N 103°50'27.8"E, you will yourself in a random carpark in Ang Mo Kio (Singaporean outskirt-ish suburb, very residential). But what is special about this random carpark, is that it is the site of a small Merlion statue pictured below (where you wouldn't really expect one, they're rare). And remember we wanted "bigger". So they now have to travel down to the main Merlion statue in Marina Bay racing against each other. On the way they had some fun tasks as well such as taking selfies, learning more about each other!
First one there wins the race!!!! It went pretty well on the delay and despite some early hiccups the Academics Department team put their minds to it and won the race! How the completely skipped going into AMK by just use Google Street View 🤣 Diego got a big brain!!
Here's a photo of the winning team and that infamous mini merlion as well some screenshots from Sherlock Holmes my alt account on Slack plus a make do TikTok that me and Anjali (VP) made coz neither of us have TikTok lol
really nice to have some fun!@fayd taught me how to make a timer hit 69 after countless triesTonight with assignments of dbms and Software Engineering.I wrote a workshop, for workshops.hackclub.com and it was the first one to get accepted!!!! WOOT WOOT!!
It's a workshop all about CSS, which learn through making an epic Scrapbook profile! if you've got some time please do check it out at: workshops.hackclub.com/scrapbook_css I love feedback!! if you use at a club please please do send me photos!!
thank you @zrl and @lachlanjc for helping make the workshop ultra epic!woot woot! got an 8 in the Science Test 🎉Yay got video calling and a basic gui working, just need to get sounds dispersal, accounts, and settings downText on Big Sur Dark Mode is pretty cool. Also join #flexFinally got most of my hardware here! So excited to begin work!
Thank you @sampoder for all your help with the process!Created my own new tab page! Check it out at safinsingh.tech/mintab/cleanI got my party parrot more party equipmentredeemed a very cool domain via gh student pack10 minute website made by everybody that joined the osf live eventtonight I read Epictetus's Discourses 1.1-1.10, followed a stretching video by Blogilates, watched lectures 7 and 8 of multivar calc, journaled, and chatted with a friend about various media landscapesLearning socket.io! created a chat app today and supplied a one-way conversationHave been working on this project for the past few days. In #projectideas @rohan.geo.2001 posted the idea of making a text detection program that would be able to "read" doctor prescriptions (those are pretty hard to read 😅), so me and R.G decided to collab. We started learning how to detect texts from images (called offline text detection), and then "upgrade" the code to receive input from the webcam instead of images (called online text detection). I just reached that point. The next steps are turning the project into artificial intelligence so it can be trained to read doctors' hand writings. If you want to be take part in this project or give us a hand, feel free to DM me.3D printer build update: 6 hours of soldering today, dinner break in between.Over 1 year of hard work and over 6k lines of code i guess i'm done. I guess i can call it an achievement. I've never worked hard like this before on a project in my entire life. Programmed an entire custom OS for this project, faced nightmares , lost hope at some points during the development stage, faced so many challenging problems and i was thinking about leaving it every day but now i'm proud of myself that i didn't quit and finished it. I learned so many things from it and i'm glad that i've made it beyond my potentials and my expectation.
I guess you saw my first post here about my project the interactive cubes, this was my first project i've built in real life. This is my second project bigger than the first one and more complex. A visualization video to visualize how it will looks like in real life is coming soon :ultrafastparrot::ultrafastparrot::ultrafastparrot::ultrafastparrot:
The name of the new project is TEKTABLE 👀sam isn’t letting up and it is not funny. i need to beat himToday I decided to work on a new project (like i wouldn't have the unfinished side projects lol) called ParrotRPG. It's a Discord bot, which, after i add the features, would let you catch wild party parrots, train them, battle against other players. In the future, I'm planning to add "effects" - magic power to the parrots, which make them stronger and more, if I come up with something interesting.
Finallyyyy:ultrafastparrot:!!!started working on my grant after my school spared me from exams😅....Hope It all comes together soon.
And just btw @orpheus2 scammed me today 😞 and didn't send me the GPs it promised to give me 👀Still sailing in the mediterranean. Weather is great.Really cool thing to wake up to! my parents are proud of me :DGoing through my email, apparently spammers are encrypting their PDFs now to prevent them from being scanned. Kinda smart but not smart enough to bypass email filters.Had to do some presentations. Check it out here - hemesh.tech/ppt.htmlSpent all day trying to make my own lamp with a fan in it so it could cool the resistor and the Light , as it wa getting very hotI decided to make an animation based on the sketch I made yesterday so here’s the first sketch layer 1700 contributions! My goal is 2k by the end of summer :D:partyparrot: 😀 , setting up my new workplace! Also, the weather is too good today, enjoy horse riding with dadI made a weird little animationRegistered for my first hackathon!!!i published a blog post today www.katmh.com/real-world ✍️ i also made pasta from scratch, organized + found data sources for a research project, and chatted with friends about various ideas (improving energy levels, buying a new bookshelf, and a writing project)Thanks everyone for your helpWrote a program that detects texts in images. Used python, opencv, and pytesseract.What is found today!
😂 @hackagotchi is best!Two months ago today, I was invited to join this strange-looking Slack workspace where everyone knew how to code. These past two months have been some of the coolest in my life! :parrot:worked today on a potential revitalization of hack night! no photo to share, so here’s a selfie!Personally I really 💖 custom emojis :yay: on our Slack :slack: & I may be :expanding_brain_4: :expanding_brain_2: working on some improvements to :dumpster-fire: Scrappy to launch today 🛫 @neel.redkar pulled through with a super helpful PR to get it rolling.
If you’d like to help test something else, adding an emoji reaction to this post would be great!I got my customizer almost fully working! The CSS stuff is still being kinda quirky but in theory it should work once I put it on a *.hackclub.com domain (CORS issues still lol, I think at this point I probably need to rethink the way I’m applying the CSS). I also made it look a little nicer so the UI will probably stay the same, but if anyone has any suggestions I’d love to hear them! had a wonderful lunch out with my mum! we had pizza and even got a lamington!Built something that I'm really proud of, part of me learning Next.js and being insanely bored in class (common topic in parent teachers, Sam looks very bored and needs to stop "multitasking").
Displays the date from the Economist Intelligence Unit's democracy index in a nicer more human way, i hope you enjoy :D each country has their own page as well, plus there are categories
It's on GitHub at: github.com/sampoder/democracy :DI thought I'd show off for the first time how my homebrew CPU is developed and how amazing "FPGA hell" is (also, I don't have a scope, donations are welcome 🤣)@yuto taught me how to use Visual Studio during hack night today! Thank you! 🍠Partly complete.. Waiting for the mic to arrive to enable voice assistance :hardware: Smart MirrorI'll got my Arduino tomorrow! So excited!Joining an online "ideathon" for the first timewow so stoked that Katie Paxton-Fear got to start-off the CTF!!!! CTF has finally started! :yay: 🎉doing my first personal website for OSFBeen doing this since I woke up! Love the tasksLearning Deep Neural Network on GooglecolabMight register for HackMITLearned about some AWS servicesI made a Hack Club meme generator! It finds a full quote for the bottom message, and then makes a Markov Chain based on over 100 sentences of the user for the top text. Will be shipping soon - currently needs some speed and quality improvements.om nom nom. my recreation of pacman in java. tryna figure out if there's a way to embed the project in html so that it'd be easily accessible for peeps to play. idk if that's even possible but time to find out! lol 🕹️And here we are!!!!
@sampoder @hackclub109 and to all the people behind this 💙Woot woot! Guess what came in the mail today (part 1/2)? Yeah!!! Let's get this party rollingggggg!What about this guys! 56GB RAM! 🔥@dinaelhanan started today. Bank is almost entirely caught up on ops due to the great work of @md and @chaleb, who is stepping up to help out with some stuff these next two weeks. Two fundraising / donor calls today too.
