@rjhangiani7+reread the hate u give today, highly recommend especially now. i first read it a couple years ago for a school project when i thought racial injustice was mostly a thing of the past, but now it's really eye opening to read it again after all that's happened and that i've learned has happened
@sampoder7+I made a (funny?) story video out of our school's halloween dress down day pictures... its a bit random
@sswikerdiddell1Gonna take the amc8 test at school today. Hopefully I dont do bad :yikes:
@jasonaa0Today I remembered that I had an essay due for my English class, so I built this website to make ~up for the lackluster content~ my essay look high quality. As you might be able to tell the design is pretty inspired by Sam's state-of-democracy.vercel.app and Lachlan's numerous web-essays. I'm pretty proud of the site cause I built it in a couple of hours. If you wanna check it out it's over at jasonaa.me/essay-iii
@sampoder7+I edited a musical!! you can watch it at oneness.now.sh... it's for language and culture week at my school and called the Oneness play.
It was a massive challenge.. as we ran into A LOT of issues filming it but im pretty proud of the end result tho a few thing things im not super fond of
ya check it out if youd like: oneness.now.sh :)
• still busy with school and haven’t had much time to finish side projects, but am learning more and more about data structures & algos
• watched the apple event, and was a bit disappointed there wasn’t anything announced that weren’t in the leaks
• sleep schedule hasn’t been fixed yet
• i got a little better at tetris since last month! (pic below)
@hkatzdev0Busy with school today, so here is my amazing rick roll attempt
@philipstudentemail3I biked a few blocks to my old elementary school and brought back many nostalgic memories. Forgot to take a picture here’s a picture of Arkansas from this summer if you ever wonder ever wonder what Arkansas looked like this summer...
@eoreizy0Hackathon with @rjhangiani& others from my school. Started at 8am, currently 3am. too sleepy to write anything else.
@hkatzdev0Preparing for school downtime of 15 hours tmr, saved all my work :/
@jasonaa0I really want to rebuild my website and finish a bunch of other projects but I haven't been able to work on stuff I actually want to do because of school. I literally cannot wait for thanksgiving but I know my teachers are probably gonna assign hw over the break... In the absence of anything interesting, enjoy this screenshot of my to-do list looking much lighter than usual.
@sswikerdiddell1I did the fitnessgram pacers test at school. So happy I got 69 and ooh I'm starting a streak. Going for a week:
@sampoder7+a lot happened to today: Halloween dress up, math test in the morning, class party for Emma who is leaving the school, debate (which we won!!) in the afternoon whilst also having 3rd movie night and then got dinner and played among us lol
@itsmingjie0I think this is ship-worthy!!! This is the biggest overkill in the history of overkill: I built a full-fledged platform for Jeopardy-style virtual puzzle hunts (can also be used for CTFs) in 4 months, and I finished today! It's built on top of Node.js, PostgreSQL, Redis, caches information locally, and pulls competition puzzles from Airtable for easy modifications. It also comes with a companion standalone announcement/alert system for real-time communication with your competition attendees.
First run of it will be in a few weeks at a <https://integirls.org/puzzle|puzzle hunt> run for middle/high school female/nb students (you should signup if you are eligible!) Still figuring out how to deploy everything across multiple servers so students from around the world would have no trouble using the platform, but that won't take long!
Code is very rushed, but it's completely open-source github.com/itsmingjie/infinity.
@sampoder7+i devised a scavenger hunt for the entire school to participate! then the student council ran it :))) we even had a real treasure chest (thanks Sai and co for making it), and filled it with candy as an end goal!
we had a whole qr code system to get hints which i built with next.js and stuff, i also made a safety plan to allow this madness to get approved by the school which i am quite proud that it happened :yay:
oh it was also Think Pink day, the school was very very pink
@sampoder7+had a debate today! first off the tournament (5ish weeks) and we won 🎉 motion was that the government should pay cash bonuses to parents whose children significantly improve their grades at school. we were negative team. s/o to @23neil.g and @arsh7chetana
@caleb16 months ago, I didn't know anyone my age interested in coding. While my past self didn't recognize it, I deeply needed a community of like-minded, and similarly aged, individuals. Then I discovered Hack Club, and everything changed. I was introduced to a brave new world where ability isn't confined by age, it's allowed to blossom. A world where even a high school student can, with the help of others, make truly significant contributions to the today's world. From the second I joined, I've been continually blown away by how much Hack Club has impacted me and others.
And this all started, a bunch of years ago, by one man with a vision.
Soooo... happy birthday @zrl! 🎂 You're nothing short of awesome, and I hope you have an amazing day! 🎉
@philipstudentemail3When I got out of the last day of the board meeting it had the same feeling as when school lets out for the summer. Here is a picture of western Tennessee on i240 I took today:
@e-lee-za0Neck wound now included (I added blood to the model) “Eleeza why must you do this to me”
I’m having too much fun with this and I got school revision stuff to do...help
@sankalparora0Finallyyyy:ultrafastparrot:!!!started working on my grant after my school spared me from exams😅....Hope It all comes together soon.
And just btw @orpheus2 scammed me today 😞 and didn't send me the GPs it promised to give me 👀
@e-lee-za0Started building the school in Minecraft so that I can draw the backgrounds for the game but I forgot to take a picture so here’s a thing from Elise’s character sprite sketches
@sampoder7+i got accepted onto my school's magazine editorial board! going to be running tech!
@thatrobotdev0Hack@Home Hackathon Day 1: School pretty much took up my entire day, so I only really got a design document down and a figma project. Super excited for tomorrow 😄
My group’s idea: an app that makes memorizing scripts wayyy easier
@sampoder7+i have made a couple of things for z internet over the past three days! may i present them to you?
first up us Leap Manual - it's an apple inspired manual for the Orpheus leap! hack.af/leap-manual (github.com/sampoder/leap-manual) it's based off @matthew workshop slide deck thingy... i must say mdx deck is wacky
next upp is something to help out my student council, we're hosting a physical scavenger hunt but we cant have people huddling around the clues, so they'll scan a qr code to get their clues. i built a website to show those clues, sample: scavenge.now.sh/recRRgVvKJaCLUfNi and gems kids this is fake so no hints.
but my fav project of them all is the one i made today! with serverless functions and vercel i made this little thingy that allows you to add songs to a spotify playlist because my school is creating a student playlist to play in the mornings and as the student council ~president~ software developer i stepped up and made smth but im actually really proud of it yeet add-music.now.sh /// github.com/sampoder/playlist-wizard i also learnt how weird spotifyss api is its weird im not a fan
school holidays are fun times
