Phew! I almost missed today because I slept for like 6 straight hours but then I got up to finish an assignment. Day 5/10 for #10-days-in-public. I didn't do much today because I was super tired, but I watched the epic airport codes video from cgp grey, and my 🚢 from a couple weeks ago worked in practice! (my ship was the rating system for the players at foosball club) you can view the current power rankings generated by the system at foosball.reeseric.ci, and the full system at observablehq.com/@lasafoosball/rankings !
I updated my ship from yesterday, a tool for rating players with observable to support
n v n teams instead of just 2v2 as well as properly saving changes with a data.json file! I also implemented it as the official ratings/rankings for the LASA Foosball Club at observablehq.com/@lasafoosball/rankings
I just finished my TrueSkill-based 2v2 game rating system! It allows you to take any 2v2 game - and create a ranking system for it, like power rankings! It even makes predictions! I'm planning to use this for the LASA foosball club, but I have to add 1v1 support first. observablehq.com/@reesericci/trueskill-2v2-rating-system
The first workshop I translated is now live! thanks @adrianoapj from Hack Club Brazil :hackclub-brasil: 🇧🇷 💖
Workshop Ship! :sprig-dino:I present my very first workshop. It's now live on workshops.hackclub.com/sprig_dodge! You should try it out and let me know how it goes. 👀 Sprig is so awesome, and I'm so happy that I can contribute. It refreshed so many JS concepts that I have forgotten. The games on the gallery are so much fun! :D Happy hacking!
Just finished an art drop of some art that I haven’t had the time to post online for a while! I’m going through the Inktober 2022 challenge, so I created Day 4 Scallop, Day 5 Flame, and Day 6 Bouquet! I also finished a collage project recently of an ouroboros 😄
Day 10 of #10-days-in-public For #10-days-in-public, I'm rebuilding my study group website. This post is more to say that my study group website is practically ready! Coming soon ship .Thanks @zrl for the event!
For Latine Legacy Month and as part of my school’s newspaper, I made a website interviewing various people on campus and asking them about their concepts about the month, their identity, and anything they wanted to share! You can find it at latinelegacy.phillipian.net/index.html
day 8 of #10-days-in-public: today i made lots of progress on a blog for purdue hackers. the front page is not done yet—gonna get something up there and then go to bed. there's still more work to be done here but i'm happy with where it's at! unfortunately i don't think it's very likely that i'll ship lightning time by the end of #10-days-in-public, as i initially hoped. i have a paper due friday that i haven't started yet, and i think the lightning time blog post will require multiple iterations, and i don't think i have time for all of that. i'll do my best but i want to make sure it's good when i ship it. i'll share in here when i do ship it though :D
day 7 of #10-days-in-public: today was a travel day so i didn't get a lot done, but i set up a basic working example of mdx + contentlayer. contentlayer is super cool!!!! this is for an upcoming blog for purdue hackers that i will use to ship lightning time ⚡ tomorrow i will bring this from example sort-of-working thing to real blog!!!!
day 3 of #10-days-in-public: today is a travel day so i didn't get a lot done, but i've been making the raycast extension for lightning time that i made a couple days ago better. today i fiddled with regex to make the validation for commands that require you to input a string better. yesterday i added the hex codes for each color when rendering a lightning time string, which i like a lot because it's actually such a cool way to visualize how the colors are generated. (can you see it?) this weekend, i want to finalize the api structure for my npm package, set up a blog for purdue hackers, and start writing the explainer blog post. i would like to ship lightning time before the end of #10-days-in-public :D
My first ever :bank-hackclub-party-dark: Bank ship: Detailed Org List! The detailed org list is a set of a few modifications on the Bank homepage. Right now it just shows a few stats, but I’m considering adding more soon. Check out the newest feature preview if you’d like to try it out. This is still experimental, so be warned!
Hehe this might seem super quick but I posted my Inktober #1 a day late, so with this I’m caught up :yay:. Day 2/32's theme is scurry so I did a scurrying skunk!
I created my first drawing for day 1/31 of the Inktober 2022 drawing challenge! Today’s theme was “Gargoyle”.
:hackaustin-green-icon: Ship! After like two+ weeks, I finally finished the new registration form!! It's pretty simple but it actually uses a real DB and not Airtable, as well as sends confirmation emails. I'll be implementing a sendy webhook soon & tie in ticketing, prompter, and ships. You can try it out today at register.hackaustin.net or view the code at github.com/hackaustin/registrations ! This took way longer than it should've...
Leland Hacks⚡ ship coming soon™️?
🚢 WaiverKit: A tool for attendees to sign the Event Liability Release from :bank-hackclub-party-dark: 🚢 I revived PactMaker by Postmark (old libs and stuff) and replaced the default agreement with the one from Bank to create WaiverKit! WaiverKit allows attendees to fill out a regular form and by the end have a filled PDF with the waiver; no more hunting for the signature field. You can try the only instance, the :hackaustin-green-icon: Waiver Portal, at waiver.hackaustin.net You can deploy your own at github.com/hackaustin/WaiverKit Happy Legaling! :dino-drake-nah: DocuSign :dino-drake-yea: WaiverKit
Not to take away from the legendary Vermont Vibes, I rebuilt my personal site (same layout & stuff) using Astro + Svelte + MDX instead of my old SvelteKit + mdsvex setup. I have to say I like astro and how it works - very easy. I also blatantly stole a toast from wack club to advertise hack austin. All in all, I'm glad I did it because it gave me familiarity with astro - like I think I could be just as quick as SK considering SK's routing got a lot worse recently. reeseric.ci (here's an image to please scrappy)
bankcURL - a small cURL-able website for Hack Club Bank! 🚢
I made a little thing for Bank - a website designed to be cURLed that shows the latest transaction data for any Bank org with transparency mode enabled. It falls right alongside wttr.in and hkkr.in !
It works like this:
I made a Scriptable widget that lets you keep track of transactions + the total balance of any :bank-hackclub: hack club bank organization that has transparency mode enabled! code and instructions for installation are at github.com/maggie-j-liu/bank-widget
*What's Henry™ Been Up to After Assemble?*™
The question on all of your minds:
What's Henry™ Doing With His Time After Assemble™?
Ever since the groundbreaking release of his team's Assemble™ project, the world has awaited his next ship™. When asked about this, he will say:
"_I'm working on a few different projects_"
What he means to say is that he currently has 12 windows open, 5 of them Firefox™ instances, each with more tabs then can fit on the navigation bar. One of those browser windows is entirely devoted to Wikipedia™ pages that he opens, and then refuses to close until he fully reads, despite the fact that he has no interest in doing so. In another window, he has everything from Ben Eater 8-bit breadboard CPU schematics, to Rust™ documentation, to TensorFlow™ docs and a partially written auto-encoder. He also has 3 Sprig ™windows, and article on how BitTorrent™ works, and a random CVE™. There is also an article on TradeMark™ Law, that he has clearly not read. There is even the skeleton of a 6502™ Emulator™ that he may or may not finish. There's a few 3Blue™1Brown™ videos that he's stuck trying to follow. There is an article on how memory works that he does not remember if he has read.
In another window, we have 1 Gig of raw Wikipedia™ data, and a Visual™ Studio™ Code™ window with code for an GO™ algorithm he is trying to use to compress said 1 Gig of Wikipedia™ data. Beyond that he has a Logisim™ window, with a partially designed ALU™ that he is trying to work on.
Each time he makes progress on one project, he gets interested in something else and opens 100 tabs for that. He is secretly hoping for his computer to crash and wipe his computer he can reorganize. He is spending large amounts of time studying useless aspects of computer science™, and math™. It has been like this since Assemble™ ended, and will continue indefinitely. This has been What's Henry™ Been Up to After Assemble?™.
Thank you for skimming over: _What's Henry™ Been Up to After Assemble?_™
:assemble: ASSEMBLE SHIP :shipitparrot: The internet is a scary place — why don’t we keep it that way? Blind Spot (BS) is a model that ONLY allows you to view fake news on the internet. On a google search, it removes all reliable sources and only shows the most extreme results. On a page itself, it is glorified & prioritized if it is fake news, and if it’s a real source, it all becomes ZACHARY LATTA THE FOURTH OUR SAVIOR :zrl: In the video, you’ll see a bunch of searches just disappear, leaving only fake news 🪄 It was super fun to push my limits with a timed 90 minute hack, and where I had my first interaction with Docker and GPT2. So happy to meet all of you, had an amazing time 💖 Huge shoutout to the entire Assemble team :blob_comfy: As always, open sourced at github.com/rajanwastaken/blind-spot
