  • 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.

  • 2020-05-02 Online Scouting

    During this pandemic and state of quarantine, many activities are moving online. This includes everything from schools, to work, to Scouting. I am not new to the world of online Scouting, having volunteered at the 2019 Jamboree on the Internet with ScoutLink, and being a member of the largest Discord Scouting community, Discord Scout Troop since April of last year. Through each of these, I’ve made friends from around the world, and learned more about other cultures than I ever would’ve otherwise.

Status update, September 2020

A mercifully cool September is upon us, and after years of searching, I finally was able to secure Club Mate in the US. Let’s decant a bottle and recant the story of this month’s progress in free software development. First of all, I’ve been able to put a pi…

Status update, August 2020

Hi! Regardless of the intense heat I’ve been exposed to this last month, I’ve still been able to get some stuff done (although having to move out to another room which isn’t right under the roof). I’ve worked a lot on IRC-related projects. I’ve added a znc-i…
