Day 73 & 74 (Sat & Sun): I did the online hackathon, and I made an webapp for my boggle game, and a with a servo that can be controlled remotely, which I'll use to flip my lights on when my morning alarm rings. I livestreamed parts of my progress on twitch: (The most recent video is a short demo of the raspi)

I found the 2 large monitors for $15 each at the thrift store! I have installed and , , and open

Day 72: I added some features and fixed some bugs in my photo voting app. I uploaded some memes, go vote for your favorite now!

Day 69 (yesterday): I tried to update my video embed links on my website to , but only some of them would load so I left it unchanged. Then I installed cockpit on my servers to see stats for all of them in one page!

Day 68: I played boggle (and livestreamed) with some family and friends today. While streaming, I fixed a bug in where backspace would go to the previous page instead of deleting a letter. I also updated the video call link to a call which worked better.

Day 67: I added some features to the boggle game : link to video chat room, log out button. I've been playing with family and friends recently, so reply if you want to play or have any feature requests!

Day 64: I FINALLY fed the boggle letters into . The first time I got 40% accuracy, but after some simple tweaks it improved to 70%. Anyway, this marks the first actual use of in this machine learning boggle project.
