9-day streak
Day 7 of #10-days-in-public: Took some more photos today to improve my ML model. Apparently it still mixes up a few items sometimes so more data will help. Also looked into public ML model datasources. Coming up tomorrow is a fun adventure!

Day 6 of #10-days-in-public: Relearned some python and did some exercises… this will help me later when I integrate ML model with external inputs with python

Day 5 of #10-days-in-public: Not much today, just did a bit of CAD and laid out some revised parts so they'll be ready for laser cutting. This will eventually be a camera/display mount!

Day 4 of #10-days-in-public: Exported my ML model to a python script today! Had to install a few libraries and fix some bugs in the example code I used, but it actually worked pretty well! Soon I'll be able to make it automatically identify objects from a live Camera feed!

Day 3 of #10-days-in-public: Fixed my previously defunct ML model by re-labeling my data to help my project classify trash types. Earlier it thought my ear was a chip bag and a wall was a soda can lol

Day 2 of #10-days-in-public: did some testing with public ml datasets today! They kind of actually work better than my own data lol but they're mostly image classification and not object detection (which is what I want). Also did some more research on why my own data didn't import properly into the ML training app, but didn't really get anywhere.

Today, I (accidentally) made a virus. First, I finally got my macropad soldered for #onboard, yay! Then, I decided to test it out using some hastily written code that was partially copied from the internet. (Foreshadowing: Nothing I try ever works the first time.) When I tried it on my computer, it started inputing a bunch of random characters and did really weird stuff, like opening the shut down dialog and running a bunch of keyboard shortcuts, even when I wasn't pressing down on any of the keys. Guess I'll be debugging code tomorrow!

Today I worked on building the WORST website I have ever made! I have project for history class where I have to come up with a guide on how one would host a party in the 90s, so of course putting the guide on a badly designed site will be perfect! Some features include great fonts such as Times New Roman and Comic Sans MS, usage of 100% modern HTML elements such as <marquee> , vivid color schemes, and flashy animations!

Sometimes it is hard to connect a fan to a motherboard and figure out how to control the fan speed. Other times the fan isn't good enough, especially if your electronics are outside. So today I came up with a (primitive) solution to outdoor electronics cooling during the summer: :ice-cube:

My first scrapbook post! Recently, I made a solar powered website and I'm actually taking that project to my state's science & engineering fair. I finally finished submitting all of the paperwork, forms, slideshows, images, and my lab report (that was a lot of work lol). The in-person fair is in two weeks, I'll be back after then with a lot more updates on how it went!
