@matthewvandyke087+🎉 Today marks my 300th day of posting to scrapbook and streaks! 🎉
Starting during Summer of Making I started posting updates about my work building Students Who Code and sharing updates + holding myself accountable to working on my projects. Through the past 300 days I have shared updates on Students Who Code, myDash, my portfolio + the redesign, BrainDUMP, and so many other things! Thank you to everyone who has followed my streaks and scrapbook 🙏
But now that I am on 300 its time to aim to 365...so lets start the countdown!!!! ⏰
scrapbook-countdown.vercel.appnote the countdown may be a little off

@lailahn0Day 4 of getting my life back together: today I really popped off 😌 I managed to somehow get a presentation, packet, quiz, and journal done by 11:59 🤭 i also did some reading to make sure I’m going to be prepared for a quiz later this week
@sampoder0ultra random ship… but my student council pulled off one of the biggest events of the year super last minute! we wanted to raise money for movember :moustache-parrot:, but caught up with stuff, in the end we did a 🥧 pie the teacher event! we had 10 or so teachers + me and the vice president of stuco who were forced into this by some very ~evil~ creative stuco members loll, it was painful but i individually raised like 50 bucks so thats cool…
overall, it actually went super well and mostly smooth and we raised like A LOT of money: $529.85 💸
i looked like the abonimal snowman at the end apparently
@sampoder0missed out on getting a fancy domain for your scrapbook? wish you had more custom domains? well your in luck today!
i have create a quick and easy tool that creates a vercel project which acts as a proxy for your scrapbook profile allowing you to set a custom domain.
so how to do it?
1. head to hack.af/scrapbook-domain. follow the steps provided.
2. once you’ve deployed the project you will see a screen saying Congratulations!, wait a couple of seconds and you’ll be redirected to the domains page.
3. Add the domain you’d like using Vercel’s built in instructions
4. Hoorah! You’ve done it!
the setup for this wild midnight project is at: github.com/sampoder/scrapbook-redirect
go crazy with your domains!
@matthewvandyke087+Designed a new icon for the Dashboard in Students Who Code! Also spent some time styling and responding to a user question today
Also my Apple Magic Keyboard arrived today!!
@roshan0got the very first version of the robot working - current cost is at $9.89 ($5.40 motor/chassis, $1.14 digispark, $2.70 lipo, $0.40 breadboard + jumpers, and $0.25 motor controller)! hoping to get the motor/chassis cost to $2.25 (rn it uses aluminium chassis and there are lot cheaper alternatives) and lipo to under $2, but hoping to switch to a more performant custom arduino which will replace the digispark+breadboard/jumpers, but will probably be a bit more expensive.
@23neil.g0Text on Big Sur Dark Mode is pretty cool. Also join #flex
@rjhangiani0learning reactjs and building a personal website!! 🙂
@kayley0:twitter: One very last update about GWC SIP! I'm not great at using twitter (ironic much?), so I actually just found out about this a couple minutes ago! Feels amazing to not only be featured, but also have my project featured on Twitter Women Eng.
@luke0made it through the AMA with only one memory leak from OBS :party-dinosaur:
@taylorylee1It has been a hot ~minute~ week since I posted on scrapbook. One thing that happened though was that our team was able to get the creator of C++ to speak at our hackathon event. Super excited! 🙂
@elizabethq0it's been a HOT minute but my team advanced to the finals of the women who code mission predictable hackathon!! still in (good) shock 😄
@christina6950Yay -learned how to put websites online and published 3! 1st took me 12min to open a repo, open the folder in VS Code editor, then commit and push on GitHub desktop; 2nd time took me 7 mins and 3rd time took me 2mins 47 seconds !!🔥
@phultquist0🎸We made more progress on the _Summer of Making_ Smart Album Cover display… it finally listens to music playing in the room and gets the album cover! Here’s Tyler, The Creator’s*Flower Boy* and Drake’s _Nothing Was The Same_, which we think look exceptional 🌟. We’ve printed some of the parts for the frame (pictures on the GitHub Repo), and have to setup always listening and automatic volume adjustment, but after that it will be finished.
@pragyarajfb130Did soldering for the first time, successfully repaired my favourite BT speaker
@e-lee-za0🖼️ My first submission for the Hack Club Fine Arts Gala - my profile picture was in need of a re-draw for a while, since my style changed quite a bit over two years...but knowing me, I wasn't just gonna re-make it. Nah, I had to i n t e n s i f y it far beyond reason. Also, I enjoy harsh shadows. huhuhu
@sampoder0Second day of debate championship! Won 2 more and lost 1 more. We finish with a 3-2 record! s/o to my teammate Sara for getting 11th best speaker
