    Because of everything going on with COVID-19, I set up my computer to do Folding@Home (and am going to add a few spare PCs today or tomorrow). I think it'd be really cool to make myself a little LED "ticker" of sorts to show what's going on with the folding client running on my computer, and, to do that, I think I'm going to try to write a library that can interface with the client and provide an API-ish thing to access the data.

    We'll see how it goes...

      Feel free to join Tildes Folding@home Team if you haven't already... we're rapidly approaching the top 1000 teams but could use all the extra oomph we can muster. :)

        Hmm. Currently folding for the Reddit PCMR team, but I might swap over. Definitely enjoy this community more than Reddit most of the time.

    Updated password a little. Gonna make one more update topic on Tildes once difficulty becomes adjustable, and then just keep going with it on GitHub, so as to not flood the forum with the same thing.

    Internship offer was rescinded due to COVID-19 so now I'll have lot more time on my hands. Will be working through Cracking the Coding Interview and I'm trying to learn the workflow of contributing to open source projects - including Tildes.

    In terms of a project though, I'm planning on a little site that features rentals in my town that don't have breed restrictions. We have a husky and it was a real challenge to find a place as they are on the old restriction list.

    dull.city It's just a button that, when pressed, plays a random tone from A0 to G5. Eventually I'd like it to play some stochastic "music" and maybe generate some visual noise based on that....

    It's just a button that, when pressed, plays a random tone from A0 to G5.

    Eventually I'd like it to play some stochastic "music" and maybe generate some visual noise based on that. Wasn't sure how to deal with sound in the browser, so what I have now is just a test. Work on your pitch identification skills!

    I've been working on a color scheme for a little bit and yesterday got around to finishing a rough version for VS Code. It still needs some work, specifically with the syntax highlighting, but I really like where it's at right now. I've been working on the Atom version today in VS Code with the theme and I just can't help but gush at the way it looks. It's so lovely, hehe. (^:

    Hopefully by the time this recurring topic is posted again next week, I'll have the Atom and Sublime Text themes done, as those 2 along with VS Code were the 3 initially planned ones I really wanted to get done soon.

    Some particularly observant people may have noticed that this is the same color scheme used for the Issue Log now.
