@courtney0Still working on the Splatter Paint workshop, but I also signed up to be the secretary of my Spanish Club but yo no sé español 😅
@hugo.y.hu9350Just built a small and inefficient quote software that lists out an ordered list of pricing for your next package shipment! It uses the shippo API, and this is one step towards mailcorgi v1!
@ceo7710Anyone else who got into HackMIT 2021? Let’s link 🙂
@heyrajan0Ahoy! 🚢 :shipitparrot: This is probably my favourite ship so far and I'm more than happy to announce heyrajan.com. In your exploration of my digital persona, it hope that you develop a profound understanding of my world, built on the foundation of creation and change. It's always been a dream of mine to release a personal website, and I am ecstatic that the first people I can share it with are my fellow Hack Clubbers :parrot_love: . A few things:
/home 🏠 ~ Manifesto, Highlights, Daily Activities, Upcoming Initiatives
/explore 🔎 ~ Socials, Contacts and A Few Important Links
/ventures ✈️ ~ My favourite non-work endeavours that I'm working on
/prev 📰 ~ Coming Soon
I hope that you can learn a bit more about my world, as online we are just a few profile pictures looking at one another. Also, "heyrajan" is now a ping word, for all you pingy hackers out there 👀
Subdomains: g (github), in (linkedin), ig (instagram), d (devpost), t (twitter), sb (scrapbook)
As always, open sourced at github.com/itsrajan/heyrajan. Feel free to add issues, feedback, PRs or just thoughts overall. Thank you everyone for your support, and I hope you enjoy :hyperbongocat::hyperfastparrot::hyper-dino-wave:
@Ishan0Got the Tdap vaccine (schools here need me to have it), went to my school again but it was closed, went to the bank with my parents (who opened an account) where we asked the guy if I could have my own bank account but he said he needs special permission from his manager cause im a minor, and in the morning I became part of something exciting:shut: 👀.
Posting a random screenshot cause scrappy is a complain bot.
As one of the Zachs says, there are no surprises in Hack Club.
See the slack! With the power of @JoeBunyan I made a raspberry sense hat LED matrix display show activity on the slack. This was my first time working with websockets and hashing algorithms! It was a super fun project to work on this weekend with @caleb and @rishi! I’ll be sending it to HQ later this week so they can put it up somewhere. @rishi should be shipping the other part of this project soon :tompog:. @caleb made @JoeBunyan which provides a ~super secret~ websocket stream. (p.s. only channels that have @JoeBunyan installed will actually be shown on the pi). Happy hacking everyone!
@ZoeDroulias0Writing the lyrics for Impossible (an original song) today!
@jasonaa1i spent a little time today trying to figure out the slack huddles api :partyparrot: i think the most useful information i've found is that under the hood, huddles use amazon chime to drive the actual voice/screen sharing stuff, and it looks like the web client uses amazon's sdk for this, so in theory we should be able to use the chime sdk to connect to slack huddles and input/output audio 👀 i wanna look more into this later but i have other work to attend to, so i've compiled my findings so far into this poorly organized notion doc - lmk if you have any more info to add or stuff i can clarify! jasonaa.notion.site/figuring-out-the-slack-huddles-api-1220507c034046669887287112f54049
@alialiwa20050Today, I've started experimenting with some configurations for my Raspberry Pi (mini DIY server) to find the most optimal solutions.
I was comparing RealVNC vs xRDP (which I've been using for a long time), and found that the VNC protocol is likely the better option compared to the Remote Desktop Protocol (now it's my favorite).
I've tested different categories, mainly which one was lighter.
On my Raspberry Pi 4B, VNC had less ram usage.
Now this may not seem a lot, especially on my Pi 4 with 8GB ram, but VNC may make more of a difference on Pi models with less ram, such as my 1GB Pi 3B.
Out of the box, RDP has better resolution, but with some configuration, I was able to get VNC to display 1080p resolution.
Also, something that I found as potentially useful was the fact that you can connect your Pi to a VPN, simply whitelist the VNC port, and you could connect and login remotely to the Pi via VNC while it is connected to a VPN (I wasn't able to do that with RDP).
Next, I'm planning on testing out OpenVPN versus the Wireguard protocol on my Pi, because I'm thinking of using my Pi as a DIY VPN server (and a way to have access to my home LAN outside of home, with minimal port forwarding), in the near future.
@mikaeru0I write an article, I may publish it later. The title sounds not right, maybe i should do some a lil edit for it.
@matthewvandyke080Designing a new section. Plus also working/planning for the next thing for BrainDUMP. Super busy this week with finals and finishing school, so I want to be ready for when I'm done so I have things to do.
@karolina0My problem is this:
I change my mind.
I'm always juggling millions of ideas, Pinterest boards, program ideas, homework assignments... I live in a jumble of words in my mind. I borrow personalities, words, phrases - I take inspiration to make up for the fact that I'm too burned out to create my own, too overwhelmed to assign a simple 'yes' and 'no' to what I like and don't like.
Currently, I have seven (7) personal websites, and only one is finished. They're all half made, with different fonts, ideas, colors, aesthetics; different snip-its of the people who were in my life at the time that I made it. Last night, I wondered why I was struggling so much with picking a theme for my website and sticking to it.
I want my website to represent me: to be the corner of the internet where I show what's important to me. I want it to be a visualization of my values written in code, and with that changing so often... it's hard.
I know that this feeling isn't foreign to many people my age, and I've recognized that the issue was that I was making websites to reflect who I wish I was, not who I am. It may just be a personal website, but to me, it's also a reflection of self-acceptance and understanding.
I'm back on Scrapbook to get my life together, and for Day 0 (v2), I decided to create a moodboard for my new website. An array of fonts, colors, ideas, emojis - we'll sort them out later, we'll stick to them, and we'll make our own corner of the Internet. I highly doubt that my final website will look anything like this, and that's ok. We'll get there eventually.
