👋 Helloooo everyone!
Ricey here back at it again with another shippy ship for @paevik! Back during the dinosaur era (i.e. last week) in the mvp, there was just the bare minimum: you could only create entries and post them to #journal.
Now, @paevik is a fully-fledged app for journalling! V1 includes super cool things like searching by ID and Date, custom files (encoded in blocks bc Slack is stupid), a timeline view in the homepage, and some username trickery! Everything in the backend’s been refactored too—an API is in the works, and everything is super secure too!
Some really awesome things are in the pipeline for the next version (I’ve decided to hold off on implementing anonymous journal entries for now), like:
• Journal entries from #scrapbook entries
• Notifications & custom feeds (you’ll be able to subscribe to other users’ public entries)
• An API + website for exploring
For now, you can get started by running /entry , or going over to #journal to see what everyone’s doing! :parrot_love: 📝 📚
It’s been a lot of fun building Paevik, and I can’t wait to see what y’all will write about! A really special thank you to everyone that helped me test this monstrous creation—it really helped a lot :)
As always, you can find the source over at github.com/rishiosaur/paevik :D
Today, decided to compile an old English social issues project (almost 2 years ago now) into a music score video. The topic was a heavy one (mental health issues in lgbtq+ minorities) and the music was quite terrible but reading all the quotes again was quite interesting.
One of my goals this summer was to have a personal website up and running. I'm severely behind on that, but I'll be quite proud if I have a homepage and my failure resume up by Tuesday afternoon. I'm starting to miss my summer already, but I'm really looking forward to school.
just took a nice hot shower from the beach, saw some birds diving vertical to catch some fish which is pretty spectacular site, still working on my website(might create a blog), and worked out logistics with the team for OSF and the CTF.
Here’s a sneak peek of my website 👀
Personally I really 💖 custom emojis :yay: on our Slack :slack: & I may be :expanding_brain_4::expanding_brain_2: working on some improvements to :dumpster-fire: Scrappy to launch today 🛫 @neel.redkar pulled through with a super helpful PR to get it rolling.
If you’d like to help test something else, adding an emoji reaction to this post would be great!
Just pushed a new build of NoteThis out :yay: Beta Xcodes kept me from pushing updates over the beta season, but now it feels good to push a new build out even if it's the exact same thing lol. I also gave Theo and Saharsh the spotlight in the release notes.
Thinking of some cool workshop projects, Have figured out at least 6 by now, which are cool and easy too. they are "Build a [redacted], " Simple [redacted], "How to [redacted], [redacted], [redacted], [redacted].
I got my customizer almost fully working! The CSS stuff is still being kinda quirky but in theory it should work once I put it on a *.hackclub.com domain (CORS issues still lol, I think at this point I probably need to rethink the way I’m applying the CSS). I also made it look a little nicer so the UI will probably stay the same, but if anyone has any suggestions I’d love to hear them!
(This photo is the Bloomington HQ’s main room at the beginning of the day.) In between desk assembly & assorted fun times yesterday:
• Worked on Bank v2 product planning with the singular @msw. Came to some great new ideas for cards on Bank I’m really excited to build; essentially, virtual + physical cards for every team member, clearer transaction ownership, simpler ordering & management. Excited to work on some UI prototyping for that today
• Had a wonderful chat with @scott, who’s been working on the Bank backend recently
• Took a walk with @zrl to discuss my work recently & the DNC/RNC & news
• Checked in with @amogh on iPad project
• Shipped a set of small design improvements to Bank
• Embarked on a tale of two packages I hope you’ll discover next week(?) in #scrapbook
Then I made some salmon teriyaki with corn & green beans for dinner with @matthew that was surprisingly good!!
I will miss @melody for all the work they hv done for hack club :sadparrot:. I created a discord server, talked abt an event announcement tmr + one w @matthewvandyke08, added to my personal website, did some work for my internship 🙂, and got a pr merged for hack club dns on github
Heard that some @staff arrived at their homes :rgbdino: and I can’t wait for y’all to make this school year super AWESOME!!!!!
Some optimizing the sh!t out of the memory controller (now it's roughly 100 logic cells). Smaller the better!
Homebrew CPU Floorplan: Orange/Red = VCC, GND and pins; Blue = Memory controller/Green; Yellow = Debug control logic (small for now); Magenta = UART rx/tx modules (clustered around pin 25/26).
