Am I the only electronics content creator on ?
I think I might be. Seems like a dead end.

Many are on now, and seems to be the go-to Youtube alternative for science and tech content now.


Day 97: I worked on some more stuff with a php photo gallery, including adding the ability to upload multiple files at once.

Day 96: To try to get group texts working on my , I build vgmms ( ), but encountered an error when running it:

Day 95: I played around with the NetHack Learning Environment, a new project by facebook's research group (as much as I dislike them as a social media I was intrigued).

My 5 game win streak is over. After ascending a Healer, Valkyrie, Barbarian, Rogue, and Priest all in a row, my Samurai was struck down by a dastardly pair of soldier ants in Minetown. All in all, I'm happy with a 5 win streak since I have never even gotten 2 in a row before. And this puts me in 1st place for 3.7.0 win streak in the tournament! Sayonara johanv the Samurai.

Day 94: I looked into the blockchain for an online hackathon. I'm trying to make a shared pixel art whiteboard just for fun. I started with their guestbook example:

Day 93: I found s3fs-fuse, which lets you mount your storage to the filesystem. It's a bit slow since it is going through the extra step of being a filesystem, so I might try rewriting the site to talk to the s3 gateway instead.

Really looking forward to this… and @aral has fixed up a fabulous setup for streaming video.

Hey! Live: Using the web for social good with Laura Kalbag. 2nd July 2020:

Day 92: Today I played around with, the client site of .io, an awesome distributed, end-to-end encrypted (and cheap!) file storage system. (I also run a server node.) I was able to set up an S3-compatible gateway running inside docker as a subdomain on my site but I had issues with the uplink connector libraries for python, go, and nodejs. Here's a link (expires in a week) to a file hosted there:

Day 90 & 91: I added a message system to the game, both for in-game messages "You hit the goblin!" and debug messages "Oops, this statement was never supposed to be executed..."

Day 89 (yesterday): I got back into the development of ruegolike, my , by tweaking how things are displayed and the movement keys, and updating the roadmap.

Day 88 (yeterday): I tested the new database and pushed the changes to the site, which you can play at Then my family and I played a few rounds. It's much faster and less buggy, and wasn't that hard to convert over to !

Day 87 (yesterday): We finished the walking animation, which is the end of the lego man tutorial series! Here's the playlist if you are interested:

Day 86 (yesterday): We worked on some more blender animations, this time trying to make the lego guy walk. It's difficult to avoid the feet sliding across the ground...

Day 85: I finally migrated my boggle game to MongoDB! (also, was today) This was long overdue since I was previously just storing everything in a file, which would slow down and break the app when it got too large. Surprisingly, everything seemed to work first try, but tomorrow I'll do more testing locally before pushing it to the server.

Day 84: My friend and I rendered an animation of the man and... well, I'll let you see for yourself ;)
