@jasonaa0this isn't very important but this is my biggest achievement on this slack
@swlittle70Nice, I finished my AOC runner (not public yet)
@sampoder7+this has been floating around the slack last night but let me introduce you to <https://meet.hackclub.dev|meet.hackclub.dev>!
it's a fun website that introduces you to a random Hack Clubber from the Scrapbook API. I made it a while back with Next.js :)
@sampoder7+Today I ran what I called the "The Great Race Across Singapore" with my Student Council friends as a team building activity! How it worked that there were teams placed in secret locations and they had to go through a series of challenges to reach the "final location" on the other side of the island which was the Merlion in Marina Bay but they didn't know that.
Here's how it worked:
Each team had 4 council members and one council leader. The council members were each given a store number that they had to go to in he Yishun Mall. Then the council leaders were all separated from their team together at Yishun Station. To come together they need to communicate through their location with only emoji.
Then once they have met, they receive a cryptic message: My name is TRY***PA, call me maybe? . When they type this word into their phone, it will call me. I then read out the following message: 1°21'53.2"N 103°50'27.8"E, but bigger.
If you head to 1°21'53.2"N 103°50'27.8"E, you will yourself in a random carpark in Ang Mo Kio (Singaporean outskirt-ish suburb, very residential). But what is special about this random carpark, is that it is the site of a small Merlion statue pictured below (where you wouldn't really expect one, they're rare). And remember we wanted "bigger". So they now have to travel down to the main Merlion statue in Marina Bay racing against each other. On the way they had some fun tasks as well such as taking selfies, learning more about each other!
First one there wins the race!!!! It went pretty well on the delay and despite some early hiccups the Academics Department team put their minds to it and won the race! How the completely skipped going into AMK by just use Google Street View 🤣 Diego got a big brain!!
Here's a photo of the winning team and that infamous mini merlion as well some screenshots from Sherlock Holmes my alt account on Slack plus a make do TikTok that me and Anjali (VP) made coz neither of us have TikTok lol
really nice to have some fun!
@kenmueller00i have to fix some dumbass stuff chrome is telling me to do but otherwise 👌
@sampoder7+them: Grade 10 will be extremely tough, you must maximise all your time
us: let's play JustDance and Karaoke for our last two periods :dabbing:
@sampoder7+It's Arts Week next week at school and it'll be a lot different to normal :(
This week's theme, however, is collaboration. So I wanted to create a platform that let students share their artwork and take inspiration from other's artworks! Meet the Collaboration Hub: collab-hub.vercel.app!
It's going to be used next week for people to share their art, and for people to take a look at their art! People can "remix" art which is when they build on top of another person's art work or take inspiration from some art :))
built with next.js and geist-ui again lol... this was my first site using props (i actually built the above one after this but the Arts teachers took a while ahahahaha). also heavily inspired by scrapbook
@elizabethq0wanted to flex my pretty default screen today:) it updates daily lol
@lachlanjc1The past 3 days, I’ve been in New Haven, CT to move out of New Haven HQ & move @matthew & somewhat @msw out of their apartment. I am the most exhausted I’ve been at least all of 2020 after moving, packing, cleaning, transporting, loading etc thousands of pounds of stuff. We shipped maybe 25 boxes all 25-60 pounds at FedEx ($1220) & spectacularly loaded Matthew’s car. Massive shoutout to Matthew & Max for all pouring it on, we are all sweaty & exhausted but now driving to my house. (& don’t worry, Matthew was wearing a mask all the time except when I took a picture)
@orangelemon0I killed my first spider today, even though I'm deathly scared of them. Kinda proud of myself, regardless that the spider was about the size of a blunt pencil lead. I don't have a pic, so here's a cat picture off the internet.
@linus0I made another @rishi emoji! :ricey2:
The lineup: 🍚 :ricey: 🎑 🍙 🍘 🌾 :ricey2:
@aurora42lambda0Since I can light up my 2 nixies I can't turn them off as I spend too much time admiring their beauty.
But the code doesn't handle 2 nixies so I added something so every 10 seconds it switch between displaying minutes and hour. Why only 2? because it's the size of the prototype and wiring 22 wires is already hard enough.
Will soon start on designing the PCB and hopefully get it very soon to start soldering everything and bring it to life!
Note: the entire clock is powered only from USB-C and that's cool af honestly, and soon I'll see my grandfather who worked with nixie tubes in the 70' so I can't wait to show him! :)
