Sometimes I post about things, but not always

  • 2020-10-21 October Status Update

    Another month, another status update. I’m writing this on a lovely rainy day, still stuck at home. One of the things I’ve been really focused on over the past few weeks has been my college applications. I need to finish editing my personal essay, as well as my letters of recommendation. I’ve unfortunately allowed my side projects to stagnate, but I think that these applications take priority.

  • 2020-09-18 September Status Update

    September brings with it cooler weather and decreased time, now that school has started again. I’m going to be shifting more and more time to my schoolwork and away from my side projects, especially because this is my senior year. With that said, I’m prioritizing FLL-Scoring, because I want to get that done for the next season. FLL-Scoring I’m rewriting this to take advantage of the new monolithic app and to get issues ready for Hacktoberfest next month.
  • 2020-08-22 August Status Update

    August shifted back from a meta month onto a more even balance with development. For Hackagotchi, I worked on the new websocket backend to allow for real-time updates to player’s hacksteads, as well as started maintaining the new chat backend, Gotchinet. In other news, I’ve begun to move the FLL-Scoring codebase into a monolithic app.

  • 2020-07-22 July Status Update

    This month is less heavy on the development side and goes more into what I’ve done to my servers. I didn’t get the chance to do as much software as I would’ve liked, though the coding I did do was fun and a learning experience.

  • 2020-07-09 Spotify on Linux

    I’ve been trying to use command-line tools more often recently, and that includes my music software. For a long time, I was using the official Spotify client for linux, with an AUR package here. This was fine for a while, but I really wanted to be able to use it on the commandline. This post is documentation on where I went with this.

  • 2020-06-22 Status Update: June 2020

    In the second month of status updates I’m going to announce my project for the summertime, and give an update on how I’ve been dealing with COVID.

  • 2020-06-08 My COVID Experience

    Since March, my state has been locked down almost completely, and we’re just now starting to reopen. My experience of the Coronavirus is probably different from most people, and given that the lockdown is getting slightly less strict, it’s a good idea in my eyes to reflect on what’s happened and how I’ve coped with the quarantine.

  • 2020-05-25 De-Googling Part One

    Taking a look at my use of Google and their… not-great history of privacy, I’ve been spending my spare time over the past few years working on, if it’s not possible to completely get off their platform, then at least minimize my use of it.

  • 2020-05-18 My Eagle Trail

    Over the past 12 years, I’ve been involved in the Boy Scouts of America. I’ve gone from a Tiger in elementary school to an Eagle Scout in High School. I’ve poured thousands of hours in both volunteering and camping, both as part of the main BSA program and the OA, and I’ve gone to the largest Scouting event in the world, the World Scout Jamboree. As I’ve now reached the pinnacle of the Scouts BSA program, I figured it would be a good idea to reflect on what brought me here, and where to go.

  • 2020-05-18 Status Update: May 2020

    I figured I’d take a leaf out of other people’s books and start doing monthly status updates (if I remember to do them). For the first month, I’ll be talking about Campmaster Constantine, Discord Scout Council, and this site.

Marking issues as regressions

The Rust project gets many issues filed every day, and we need to keep track of them all to make sure we don't miss anything. To do that we use GitHub's issue labels feature, and we need your help to make sure we fix regressions as soon as possible! W…

Status update, October 2020

Hi all, it’s been a while! I’ve been taking some time off this month: I’ve been hiking in Corsica (an island in the south of France) for 2 weeks! The path (called GR20) was very difficult but the gorgeous landscapes made it entirely worth it. :) I’ve uploaded…

Status update, October 2020

I’m writing this month’s status update from a brand-new desktop workstation (well, I re-used the GPU), my first new workstation in about 10 years. I hope this new one lasts for another decade! I aimed for something smaller and lightweight this time — it’s a …
