: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
I'm making a thing (hopefully a ship in a few days!)
Yesterday, I ran my very first IRL hack night at our house in SF! We had a couple dozen people drop by throughout the evening and make everything from ai research to a perfect word generator w/ gpt-3 (and people were coming until about 2 in the morning! new first for me in hackathon organizing) We started off at the house, then went over to Noisebridge (a ridiculously cool anarchist hackerspace about 2 blocks away from us) and made some music and synth visualizers :) all of us ended up coding until the wee hours in the morning, and we had some pretty sweet people show up—Jacky, Pranav, Ben and the cofounders of DeepAI! still trying to get over my sleep deprivation but I couldn't be happier with how it turned out <3
I have almost returned! (As of writing this I'm in the back seat of someone else's car driving to the airport in Florida) My parents got bored of me, so they shipped me off to a 7 day scuba diving trip in the Florida keys with everyone's favorite (all American 🇺🇸) child molesting organization! Accidentally touched grass, got vomited on a second time on a boat, discovered how much you can price gouge popcorn if you don't let consumers escape the camp (10 fucking dollars for a bag of popcorn), and managed to do 11 dives in the week (I never want to see water again) I'll be back in Vermont in about 7 hours where I can return to the usual schedule of hiding in my room on my computer avoiding social responsibility Since I was tragically not eaten by a shark, it seems like I'll be back to making stuff here. I'll try to get a small ship out soon

Ever wanted to add easter eggs to your GitHub profile, or leave a fancy message for anyone inspecting your contribution graph? You can now with GitWrite! Over the past few days I wrote GitWrite with inspiration from @aiden.bai05’s GitHub profile and how he spoofed dates for commits. It’s pretty easy to use, you just have to make sure you do it in the right repository, otherwise it’ll be a lot more git commands to undo :eggsdee:. Try it out! :github: github.com/yodalightsabr/gitwrite :npm: npmjs.com/package/gitwrite-cli
🚢 Last week, my Hack Club ran ⚡Maker Week⚡. Which put simply was Hack Club for an entire week! We had a Discovery Zone on Monday morning (a series of generative art / visual displays), then every lunchtime we ran a workshop (such as the Kahoot & Kaboom workshops as well as a special science workshop) and to wrap it all up we had an evening hackathon called Maker Night. It was a ton of fun and hopefully we attracted some awesome new Hack Club members!
Today was a good day! Well, it was alright to be frank. I got lots to share, so let's begin! I had some school stuff, which went decent. 1 test that I think I did good on, and somethign I don't think i ddi that well on. I got good progress on an assignment for another class to, so that's :yay: I took a new book out from the libary: Children of Blood and Bones. Couple pages in, my thoughts? 📖 It is a beatifually written book, and I cannot wait to read it more. Reviews are also good! I did some programming today 🧑💻 after a while (kind-of) I found this tutorital on for loops and data for :python: Python. I did most of it, and it's actually really intresting. I lik what you can do with for loops, I plan on finiishing this later this week. I'll ship it here, with my own data and ideas ( i got a few after I look another article on what I can do with this) You can check it out here; www.dataquest.io/blog/python-for-loop-tutorial
Hey folks! There’s a new member of the Portland family — Portland Text! It’s designed to be more legible than the display variant, which has been renamed to Portland Display. We hope you like it, and you can go get the updated Portland at allotro.pe/portland now!
ok I managed to get back on my PC, Studying the remark right now, so I can make my own Markdown Parser, I’ll post updates on how its going here and #ship it once its done!
RailsConf ship! 🛤️ @garytou2 & I built a Node.js app ~(should have built this in Rails)~ last night to scrape the RailsConf schedule and create an .ics (iCalendar) file so we could easily add all the events to a Calendar. The source is at github.com/garyhtou/railsconf-2022-schedule and you can add it to your own calendar with railsconf.garytou.com/calendar.ics if it would be of any use or interest to you.
Today I have a stupid ship. Voilá FizzBuzz, my favorite problem, in gForth! Forth is one of my favorite languages, as it’s stack based and I love stacks. I also am shipping a terrible python implementation of Forth! It doesnt support much, but if you make something cool message me! FizzBuzz: replit.com/@arbee/fizzbuzz My Forth: replit.com/@arbee/Forth
I did it a few days ago as you can see it on my Scrapbook posts, but I was told to ship this as well! This features a custom background with a texture, gradients, the application of elements like
:after , some cool borders and a great animation! From this I learned how to get better at design and with CSS.
To all of this I'm attaching some pictures 📸 of the projects and the links! 🔗 🌐
That's all for today, feel free to ⭐ any of the projects or follow me if you like and see y'all later with the next Ship!! Wahoo!
Today I added more scenes to my Sci-Fi 🛸 👽 comic at school! I also worked on features for some coding projects! 💻 :quad_parrot: Sadly :sadge: today I couldn't went to the cinema 🍿 to watch Dr. Strange :drstrange: , so I'll have to make my best to finish early all the work 📜 🖊️ 📖 I have to do tomorrow so I can have time to watch the movie! Also I'm almost ready to make my first ship ever!!! 🚢 :parrotdad:
Slack Bot Ship 🚢 @CodeBot-U03D7LR2607 runs code from over 200 languages using Piston right from Slack. To run code, make a code snippet, or send a message with the language you want to use, followed by a codeblock to run. Try it out in #run-code! Instructions are pinned :tw_pushpin:. View it on GitHub: github.com/YodaLightsabr/slack-run-code
Hai! I am here to ship the notification system of the future! git.sr.ht/~arcade/notification-center Is a project I have been creating to make use of my old kindle. It is a “notification aggregator” of sorts, it pulls from my mac and my mastodon and uses a custom deduplication database middleware!
A Wordle clone ship! 🚢 :emojile: :shipitparrot: Earlier today I attended @heyrajan’s Build Your Own Wordle workshop where I made my own Wordle clone and decided to make it with Hack Club Slack emojis. I used @BenjaminSmith’s Hack Club emoji API to get a list of emojis and display then once you solve it. I also added the same animations as the original Wordle because it was driving me crazy :eggsdee:. There are definitely a lot of bugs but that also means there are a lot of features :cooll-thumbs:. My score for today is in the 🧵. Try today’s :emojile: Emojile: emojile.dino.icu ~and post your score in #wordle!~ :github: GitHub: github.com/yodalightsabr/emojile
Today I'm celebrating my second ever PR and feature merge onto Hack Club Bank 🥳 and users can submit forms to Bank team with their feedback and feature requests!
Smallish ship, I 3d printed a molecule/metal organic framework I generated for my science fair project, and like how it turned out!
:codeday: 🇸🇬 We ran the first CodeDay in Singapore yesterday! We had a massive turnout and converted a retro cinema (that was formerly a disco dance floor) into a massive hackerspace. (ft @arsh7chetana, @Arash, @NeilGhosh & @neervikasv)
For my CS class at school I led a group in using Processing to build an animated GIF. We were inspired by the popular game Wordle to make a GIF of people attempting to solve a wordle. Our animated GIF shows different ways to get to a word. We designed the boards in Figma. Here is the repo: github.com/abbyfischler/swordle and I’m attaching a demo!
AHHHH I DIDDD ITTTTTTTT :swoledoge: finally finished the first MVP of my 2022 website. i stuck the prototype up on karolina.mgdubiel.com. considering how much creative freedom i let myself have with it, i'm pretty happy about how it turned out. i will definitely be refining it over the next few weeks until i get to a product i'm really proud of. for now, it's disabled on mobile, so that'll be something to add, too. i think i'll add it to #ship in a few days if i'm happy with it. 🚢 thanks for all your suggestions!! :)) (and if anyone knows how to make the dark mode look less unappealing... lmk)
