Day 61 of #100-days-in-public. Today I am continuing to take a bit of a different approach to scrapbooking, by doing video updates. I recommend watching the shorter video for context before you watch the longer video.

Found this really cool book about electronics! It supplements my electromagnetism knowledge well so far and hopefully I can make more complicated circuits by the end :electric:

Haven't posted anything in here in a while, so here's an update on my OS. It's 32-bit and mostly written in C. I can read/write to the disk, have a filesystem (no directories yet) and have some built-in tests! Also just looks somewhat better

Day 59 of #100-days-in-public. Today I learned that it is possible to have a RP2040 chip run HDMI in this video. I also rearranged my board in hopes of having space to have a micro SD card slot, but found that compared to my board, SD cards are really large! While I was rearranging my board I switched over to female pins for the board's IO pins.

Day 58 of #100-days-in-public. Well, I intended to look into creating a second board to go on top of this one that will include a communication chip and HDMI port, but my robotics team found out we qualified for worlds today! As soon as we heard the news we rushed to our school where we store our robot and tools to pack before school closed for the weekend. Due to the short notice we were not able to make the New England truck, so we ended up packing everything in one minivan, which is going to be driven to the competition. After we packed I joined some fellow team members in a button making party! We have loads of buttons to go but are having fun.

Short version as introduction: I’m building a diorama of the trenches in World War 1 to demonstrate the environment soldiers were in, and why they have trauma and PTSD. I’m doing this to spread awareness so that people can understand them better, and they can receive the mental and physical help they need. I want to help people understand and sympathize with veterans and soldiers better. Kinds of people I need: People who are interested in war, helping veterans, psychological mental illnesses (Like trauma and PTSD, paranoia, or things developed by traumatic situations like war), history, or just people who have contacts with people who are interested in that. Also people who are good at organization and planning/time management and working on group projects. (I’m absolutely horrible at it.) Story for the interested without a short attention span (Or with one)(Like me): Hello Hack Club, I have recently been doing something that’s not entirely hacking related, but it really interests me, and I want top find other people who share the interest. I had a school project where we were allowed to choose a topic that interests us and create a product out of it. I decided to make a model of the Trenches from the western front in WW1, and dig into the history of them. My original plan was to try to make an online 3D model of some trenches in the world that people could virtually tour through, but I haven't got the the faintest clue how to do that. (I still want to do it) Instead, I built a simple diorama (It’s a work in progress). But as I worked through my project, my interest changed. I was told that the current Russo-Ukrainian War was using trench warfare, and that I may be able to relate my project to that. I didn’t look too much into it (In was too busy being a professional procrastinator; It’s very important) but I thought it would be good to look into. The School Project was for our Exhibition, an event where students show off their work to other families and the community. I showcased it there, and pitched my project. Throughout the presentation, and in the days beforehand, I realised that I had a new typing I wanted the main point of the Project to be about. I wanted to use the diorama to demonstrate the environment soldiers were in, and why they have so much trauma, PTSD, and Other mental issues. I wanted to do this, so people can understand them better, and they can receive better mental or physical help, and people would develop sympathy for them. I want to let more people know about these issues through education on trench warfare and it's effects, and maybe war in general. Lots of people don't understand nowadays, and I'd like to help care for veterans, or people in the army. I think understanding why they have these mental struggles, by demonstrating the horrific things that they encountered in war could help. Or just helping explain mental illnesses like PTSD and other traumas. Things I’m wanting to do: I want to try to get in contact with other people interested in the issue, or people who know about different aspects of the project. Maybe trying to get in contact with organizations and non-profits that help veterans. Channel: Here’s the channel I am starting to set things up in: #C06TWSY18G2| (Plz tell me if you can't access it so I can add you)

I am going to let it run over night and will see how well it ends up but currently I have gotten the best result at loss = 0.95ish which is pretty good, here is the animation I was able to make with just 10 epochs though in the meantime before I get the actual animation
