Tested the WHW urban kayak in a lake. It floats fine, DIY paddle was a mistake
Was working on updating my personal site when I realized multiple things. I have gotten a lot done and very little done at the same time. Also, repls are down/were down in NA?
Day 10 of whw: kayak is basically complete. One more day of drilling holes and cutting out a seat and ill be ready to set it afloat. Another day to finish the leds and the rgb folding hakyak will be finished.
Day 9 whw: kayak almost done. Wood has holes drilled. Seat has been cut out.
Day 8 of whw: hakyak is starting to take shape.
Whw day 7: spent most of the day with family. I decided to fold a paper model of the kayak so tomorrow I can just go do it.
Day 6 of whw: cut the wood. Messed up my calculations though lol. The classic math problem if i have x number of 8ft pieces of wood, how many y length pieces can i make.
day 5 of WHW. I worked a bit on the code. rave lights.
Day 4 whw: cut pvc. Made the structure bars for the hakyak.
Originally i wanted to use a single bungee inside the pipe but mine have hooks that are too large. So i just used two bungees that have round ends that are slightly larger than the inner diameter but fit in the right angles. Works pretty good in keep the ends on tight.
Day 3 WHW: my hackathon buddy took all the supplies out my kit last hackathon we went to, so no hardware progress today. Didn't feel like cutting pvc pipe and wood latice so I decided to get some decor done. Designed a sticker for the hakyak. Will probably print it out using stickermule. Next week I have off, so I'll finish up the hakyak in hopefully no time and test it in some water.
Day 2 of whw:
Got the lights for the boat working.Day one of whw:
Marked up the sheet with fold and cut lines for the kayak following the schematic.
Only 5ish days behind on the tryhackme advent calendar. Oops.
In-person hackathons + unlimited mlh swag 🤯
I have some sort of test on packet tracer for my networking class tomorrow. I have DHCP and WPA2-PSK security working and managed to get ping between devices and that's it. :kanye_shrug:
Stable Diffusion generated stickers. I will make an army of thousands.
Also first ship! "Quickly" made a website for our club before the school year starts, Sep 6 my fellow NYC HS students, set up the domain with cloudflare while not breaking google workspace. Simple.css was used, might rebuilt it in the future with something cooler. Some changes still need to be made but it is more or less ready for our first year of hack club at edison.
Cloudflare doesn't want to deploy my repo, but repl.it is ok with it. No clue why. I've deployed with cloudflare pages before, idk why it doesn't work now. Could also deploy on digitalocean or any number of serverless or server based options. Any suggestions?
First actual PR, not including dino. I found a typo on one of the workshops where it guided you to name the variable one thing, then another thing later on. :chefskiss:
My school finally got us our ITF+ cert vouchers(that aren't expired), and now I have to review genius content such as this. So I get the privilege of going there in the middle of the summer to take a 90 minute exam lol.
Did the app for Github student benefits. It greenlit my student email from my HS, but not the one from QCC, a community college.
Used DigitalOcean's App platform to deploy a static site for work. Very pleasant. It works so seamlessly, for free. Only a matter of time before I break it.
Messed around with simple.css. Tried out the features. Lots of llama photos and Latin text placeholders.

I've made a slightly working system. Now in the most optimal conditions you can run linux commands from the comforts of discord.Another discord python bot project. There are better ways to store data, like using databases, but I just wanted it to work and didn't want to figure out sqlite3, so python lists and tuples it is.
My ugly little wireframe for home page for a simple web app idea for a summer job I'm doing.
My mission to be able to use a CLI through discord was semi successful today. I managed to get the command echo hello world to execute and the input to return. Then it stopped working and I broke my terminal access and I guess what went wrong will remain a mystery for today.
Was lazy again today. Thought I would look at NYC data website for fun. Turns out Manhattan has had no complaints about portable toilets this year. Compare that to abandoned bicycles. You have a chance. A google voice number and 311, and you can be the only dot on the Manhattan portable toilet complaint section.
More progress. I can send a message to my discord bot who makes a file with my input, then a bash script executes and saves the output.
The arduino coffin dance buzzer workshop thing. Lazy to do more important things.More progress has been made on the project. Got a VM running with digitalocean. The bash scripts I made with the user input from discord are there, but when I try to execute(I did remember to give them permission), there is an error.😤
Working on a slightly dumb idea: Using discord as an interface for a CLI. At the capture and store messages from discord as files titled by time with shebang lines.
First scrapbook thing + first discord bot. It's just a hashtag for now. Also figured out how to hide my key on repl.it using environmental variables. I'm using this right, right?
