Starting to print stuff for my winter hardware wonderland project! This will take a while…

Added A* path finding to my Java snake game! P1 is me and P2 is the computer. I hope to add some random weight noise to make it move in more random directions and be a bit worse. It does error when there is no valid path but that can be easily fixed!
Learning morse code ~while procrastinating~! morse.withgoogle.com/learn is so amazing. In under an hour, I know how to read and type morse code! Punctuations still need practice and I'm far from being able to listen to morse code. Never expected myself to ever learn it, -... ..- - / .. - / .. ... / .-. . .- .-.. .-.. -.-- / -.-. --- --- .-.. -.-.--

Windows PowerToys are really awesome! I love the run feature!
https://cloud-ifie7urwd-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Testing out parts to make sure they work for the 10 days of making! First time working with steppers. Hopefully I did nothing wrong!
Optimized my ✨ Java Snake Game 🐍 for a summative project! Originally, it was flickering and lagging really badly on the slow school computers. I rewrote the method used to paint the components, that removed the flickering. Correctly implemented Timers, which got rid of most of the lag. It should be able to run faster without problems now! It feels so much more smoother. I'm excited to #ship this when I'm done!
More improvements on my ✨ Snake Game 🐍 Almost done wahoo, just some polishing and maybe small features.
Made my Java Snake Game 🐍 two player! It's really hard to demo with just me alone. 😅
Some ✨ updates ✨ to my snake game! 🐍 Made on Java with Swing, all assets are original!
:blahaj: BLAHAJ :D

Did some more Blender-ing! :blender: Hopefully the GIF hasn't destroyed the quality.

Ran two Hour of Code sessions to the grade 7s and 8s students at my school with my school's CS department students! Super awesome, but unfortunately I don't have any pictures of it. Here's a generic screenshot. Thanks to the teachers that organized it! :)

Designed and Printed a pen/pencil mount for my older, kinda broken 3D printer. The gantry still works so I’m hoping to put it to use somehow.
https://cloud-632sn5t8h-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image_from_ios.jpg
First time CAD-ing something “useful,” Fusion 360 is confusing to use haha. Made a slot/holder for my HC token, 3D printed it and stuck it on my panel used for stickers. :D

I turned my wall mounted RPI into a light switch. Not super practical as of now but I did it! …after a week of head scratching ~and keyboard bashing~. :raspberry-pi-logo:
3D printers are truly awesome.

Workshop Ship! :sprig-dino:I present my very first workshop. It's now live on workshops.hackclub.com/sprig_dodge! You should try it out and let me know how it goes. 👀 Sprig is so awesome, and I'm so happy that I can contribute. It refreshed so many JS concepts that I have forgotten. The games on the gallery are so much fun! :D Happy hacking!

Doing my history homework while listening to Minecraft music. Ah the nostalgia. :minecraft:
https://cloud-7bw9v4psg-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Currently only put a clock on there for testing. But it works!! Local sveltekit server running in the background with chromium in kiosk mode. The best part is everything auto starts. :raspberry-pi-logo:

Making a Sprig Workshop :D
https://cloud-964p0c2rg-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Got some Rock PLA to 3D print, it looks awesome but is terrible to print with and breaks between layers easily. Also just learned that it can erode the brass nozzle. Returning the spool.

Vase mode is so cool! :3d-printer:
https://cloud-h02e7eegv-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image_from_ios.jpg
3DBenchy! There are some little layer shift and salmon skin issues. Hopefully I’ll be able to fix some of those soon!

An Ender-3 Pro just appeared on my front porch today!!! Excited. 👀

My assembly stickers just arrived. They look awesome! One of the first stickers I've received. Thanks @hugo.y.hu935 for the mail!
https://cloud-eifmsyc8j-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Today I experimented with using my broken 3D printer (one of the cheap, poor quality ones) as a plotter to draw stuff. The results are so much better than what I expected.
https://cloud-74q5p2doj-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image_from_ios.jpg
Starting out with the simple stuff! Buttons! They look decent, I'm not too happy with the disabled ones but i have no idea how to make them better.

Nothing interesting happened today... I did make a Pig Latin translator in my Java computer science class. I thought it was interesting.
https://cloud-njtgpx7rb-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Attended my schools' first :first: First Robotics meeting (for this year) today, epic! Don't have photos... So here's my history homework that I have to do... :nooo:

Gonna start experimenting with building ui components in Svelte with tailwindcss! Hopefully I can do something before the busyness catches up again.
https://cloud-6itj1dqhr-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Tried running Stable Diffusion locally as I still don't have access to Dall-e :( This is insane... very powerful. Prompt: a rabbit reading a book.

Practising my Blender skills! Replicated an IKEA BERGENES. It looks quite nice except for the grain directions which are messed up as I can't find proper textures.
Today in Sprig jam, I created flappy_bird_but_no_gravity_and_worse!
https://cloud-ko90mpwei-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Improved my website speed by over 50%! The Scrapbook section loads so much faster now
https://cloud-hig1ra6c3-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
I just uninstalled McAfee antivirus... I should have done it earlier... It eats up so much CPU and lags everything during development. The fans don't kick on instantly when I open IDEs anymore! :poggers: 3% compared to the previous 40%.
https://cloud-g61fg4jsq-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
:sprig-dino: The excitement! :DDDDDDD
https://cloud-l2oxiw0ed-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
3rd attempt at photogrammetry! 88 Photos of a "stone bench??" processed using Meshroom. The result was fantastic!
Made a quick and dirty userscript that opens Bing Video Search results directly in YouTube instead of the embedded viewer thing.
https://cloud-e41cx61a8-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Finished my personal Website!! Just in time before summer break ends.

I'm having too much fun with Sprig.
https://cloud-p4l6knrxq-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
I created Connect Four with Sprig. Awesome!
https://cloud-3uo15klb0-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Made this today, and it's not actually terrible.

Figured out how you can build and deploy a SvelteKit static site to Github Pages!
https://cloud-hnt4psv09-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Responsive design :nooo: Best I could do without a hamburger menu. (I'm too lazy)
Trying out and learning Svelte! A few friends recommended it to me a while ago.
https://cloud-kzsuzhr81-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
Today I also fooled around with scriptable and created a widget which shows the live download count for my Minecraft mod. :D Programming on mobile is quite the pain.
https://cloud-d031k7406-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.pnghttps://cloud-ixkkkr67u-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0image.png
First time using the scrapbook, trying to finish my website! Trying new techniques and learning web design in the process. Looking good so far...
