@sampoder7+my github swag from the scavenger hunt arrived!!! also tonight i worked with @luke on making a new version of hack.af/pack that has instant approval! also had a history test, did meditation in drama class and had an interesting day at school :)
@23neil.g0Text on Big Sur Dark Mode is pretty cool. Also join #flex
@sampoder7+I'm taking the bus all the way to school! Why? Because I got bored of being in a train and imo buses are just nicer... plus the seats are cushioned! You got to see so much more as well! Hopefully I'm not late....
here's my book week costume, yep, a 1984 shirt. I was planning to draw a dictator mustache on myself but I have to wear a mask.. I'm now regretting not getting those free single use masks yesterday :(
@ng-00360Finally got most of my hardware here! So excited to begin work!
Thank you @sampoder for all your help with the process!
@austin0still gotta add the timer and randomize the motivational message for 𝖘𝖕𝖎𝖈𝖎𝖓𝖊𝖘𝖘, but im vibin with this :D
@ktm0Done with another python project! Learned how to code a program that fetches a random article from wikipedia. It also provides the title and summary of the article and allows you to choose if you want to read it or not. big thanks to @luke who helped me figure out solutions to every problem i ran into while making it lol.
@alexa0I uploaded my bot coding to Github-- First repository!

@nasheeb.dangi0:party_orpheus::party_orpheus::party_orpheus: When I googled Orpheus, I found that orpheus is an musician mythological character in greek. So, to make my orpheus meaninful, I tried to make an Musican Orpheus with headphones. hehe hope you like it. :party_orpheus::party_orpheus::party_orpheus:
@rishi0my startup is FINALLY incorporated!!! :ultrafastparrot:
@jasonaa0Not much interesting today, but I did figure out a new idea to get the pi zero working as a programming tool for iPads. The original plan was to simply set the Pi Zero up as an Ethernet Gadget so that you could easily just plug in one cable with power and data to an iPad, and SSH into it using something like Termius. Butttttt, there were 2 problems with this: first off, iPads cannot supply enough power to the Pi over Lightning to allow it to fully boot, and secondly, even once powered by an external power source, I couldn't SSH into it, which was pretty disappointing. But after a nice long shower, I came up with a new idea: Instead of using USB for SSH, the pi will create a secured wi-fi access point where you can SSH into it, or log the Pi onto some other wireless network using SSH or some sort of Web UI. I have a small OLED display that will be perfect for this. Then, to handle the power problem, I'll have a separate Li-Po battery that will power the Pi when it detects that it's been plugged into a USB host. Ideally, it'd be able to charge a little bit of of the iPad but I'm not too sure how viable this is. I'll probably also have to have a separate charging port, which I was trying to avoid in my original design, but it is what it is. I also want to see if I can set up a joystick to navigate through menus.
@lachlanjc1Personally 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!
@clayton0Got a new hot air station. Tested it out by "desoldering" something on on this poor dead wifi chip
@sampoder7+Working on my CodeLabs project, building a contact tracing tool!
@hemesh0Me with an experience of over 2 years in Web Development didn't even know that this exists 🤯 Am I the only one!??
@pragyarajfb130Someone at the door?🤔
4 shipmemts were yet to come I guess!
But now its 3😎😍!

@zrl0Team is cooking dinner. Tonight we are talking about the new school year. What does a great year look like when few clubs can meet in person? Slack as a community, but also Slack as a tool.
@hemesh0Completed the Coursera TF in Practice Specialization. Really had a great time....
