@YinuoLin-U04KEK4TS721🎏 I drew the flag for #flag-referendum! Featuring: pirate Orpheus, doing a salute pose, pointing ahead.
I thought about doing it when @KaraMassie asked me whether I was entering or not. I thought about it, then went to the #flag-referendum channel to look around. There, I saw @KrishnaBansal-U03CBNJUWJG’s pirate Orph and immediately got inspired. What if Orph was wearing a pirate hat?? 🏴☠️ It was a fantastic idea. Scrolling further up, I saw @LiterallyEverything-U04LNE9HEFK’s saluting Orph - the pose added so much personality to the character. (And, one of my personal design/art principles: ✨ personality ✨ - not always in the literal "character trait" sense, but something that brings life into the art.) Scrolling further up, I saw @JamesXiao-U04EQJ4RRHA's logo - which is genuinely just a well designed logo. It fits both the tech and boat vibes - so why not replace the traditional pirate skull on the pirate hat with it?
I've honestly just taken in a lot of inspiration from everyone who has submitted a flag, even if it's not as obvious as the ones I've listed above. As @cwalker says, it was truely a community effort and couldn't have been made without the rest of y'all. So thank you all!! I hope you enjoy the flag as much as I had fun drawing it :yay:
@dominic4shopping list! hopefully I can control myself from adding too much more big stuff
@jc0hi! i’ve been a bit inactive in this slack but i’m officially back! just wanted to share a couple things i’ve been working on: marrow, markright, and the star of the show, arson! arson:fireball: is a programming language, around, well, ARSON! what else. (excuse the bad inside joke.)👇 here’s a demo of me writing a sudoku puzzle solver in arson with marrow, a text editor i’ve been working on using this amazing guide on writing one in c that i’ve been expanding upon! because i want my own vim alternative but mostly for funsies and to learn c.
another things: markright! some people might know that i wrote my own markdown parser a while ago along with a web ui. the web ui has been improved and looks a lot better! (although i have a couple issues to fix in chrome). comes w/ google oauth (i kind of skimped on adding extra auth options) and a recursive filesystem. demo also below 👇
extra things i did or am working on icyi at www.jianminchen.com/article/general/2023-06-04! going forward planning to work on more hc-centric stuff!@maggie0angelhacks ba!! @ryan@FatimahHussain-U03Q6KW4HPC@swarnya246
@MauroBg0Hey there, friend. I can sense that you've been scrolling through your device, probably trying to distract yourself from a tough day you've had. I want you to know that it's okay to take a break and clear your mind, but don't forget that you're not alone in this.
Life can be challenging sometimes, and we all have our fair share of rough days. It's understandable to feel overwhelmed, stressed, or upset when things don't go as planned. But here's the thing - the tough times don't define us. What defines us is how we handle those moments and keep moving forward.
So, take a deep breath and remind yourself that you are strong enough to get through this. Whatever happened today or whatever is bothering you, it's temporary. It may not seem like it right now, but things will get better.
You have the power to turn things around and create a better tomorrow. Start by acknowledging your feelings and giving yourself the space to process them. Be kind to yourself and practice self-care. Whether that's taking a warm bath, going for a walk in nature, or simply enjoying your favorite meal, do something that makes you feel good and relaxed.
Remember that you're capable of handling whatever comes your way, and you have people who care about you and support you. Don't hesitate to reach out to them and ask for help if you need it.
In conclusion, dear friend, don't lose hope. Believe in yourself and trust that you'll overcome this. Tough times don't last, but tough people do. Keep scrolling, but this time with a positive mindset - things will get better.
@sahitid0finally got this #hardware-party I LOVE THE STICKERS
@jzaleta0*It’s a quiet night... the weather forecast says:* 🌌 Starry-sprinkled night skies with a chance of shooting stars and Lo-fi beats.
You say to yourself, wait, that can’t be possible, right?
Definitely possible! I present y'all my new ship: night-skies.vercel.app 🚢 :quad_parrot:
Night skies github.com/j-cordz/night-skies is a small p5.js:js: website that includes a starry night sky and random shooting stars and some lo-fi beats! 🎵
Please give it a ⭐ on :github: if you like it! This was very fun to work on, and helped me to learn more about p5js.
@malted0Called with @conrad and the folks at #burrow; got some traffic moving through the virtual interface! Exciting start
@Briyan0Tysm guys 💖 (I think someone pressed the duplicate button 😅)
@jc0Small ship (bigger one coming soon hehe)! At #horizon I built an unnecessarily ~complicated~ hacky project involving Spotify + Neopixels. Basically, the web interface at horizonmusic.vercel.app allows everyone to add music to a Spotify playlist that I play (which means I have ultimate control I guess + yes you can technically still add music) without having to log in (especially if they don't have an account) + automatically filters out explicit songs in the search so nobody adds explicit songs. Waveform with p5.js and Tone.js record surround sound (coming from speakers and other close noise) and transform it into a cool waveform, while a set of LED lights (Neopixels) flash along to the music, utilizing an Adafruit Feather Huzzah to wirelessly communicate with a computer (computer mic -> computer -> computer processing -> send FPS to Adafruit -> flash Neopixels!) through the amazing audio-reactive-led-strip library. The Neopixels we got didn't work fully, but the result was still cool! github.com/jianmin-chen/spotify-collab (and I might be getting working Neopixels for another project!)@reesericci0Hey everyone!
If you want a silicon valley bank run shirt - you can buy one at siliconvalleybank.run! I am selling them for $30/each.
@abolunthompson0the most dopamine I get all day is when I get hackathon registrations
@Mayank0#hardware-party :winter-hardware-wonderland:Day - 10
Made a circuit board for connecting my home appliances and while cutting the vero-board, I destroyed my phone
Tried using an oscilloscope.
@BikashGupta-U04HFDWE7CH0Final video of my Human face following robot 🤖. It is working well tracking my face 😊.@HaitomnsG-U04FQKQMCET0:winter-hardware-wonderland: Winter Hardware Wonderland Day 5:
Successfully connected and tested the microphone and speaker and yay 😁 it's working.
Sorry for being absent for last 2 days.
Just cut the arcylic sheet in proper shape and assembled the motors,wheels and motor shield driver in it.
@adelly130so so so happy that a research paper that i’ve been working on for a supa long time finally got published!
