Day 491 : Come Up

liner notes:

  • Saturday : Got up early to finish putting together the radio show. Then made the trip to the radio station. Did the show, had a good time. Then drove the van to my spot, watched an episode of Cowboy Bebop. I was pretty tired and went to sleep. The recording of this week's show is at

  • Sunday : Had my online study group ( ). The time flew by! Got a few things done though, so I felt good and went right to bed.

  • Professional : Ran into an issue building a demo for a blog post last week. So today, I went through the code and got it working. I'm taking another sample app and adding some Web Components. Got everything pretty much working and need to work on some styling.

  • Personal : So I decided to take part in this developer event thing that if you deploy an application to Netlify (like a hosting company) in December, they will donate money to organizations that help people get into tech. As a person who participated in extra-curricular programs to help under represented people get in science, math and tech fields, I'm down to support. I have a demo that I did for a talk I gave earlier this year, so I am going to make it a full application and deploy it. I even bought a domain. Yes, another domain. haha.

Going to see how much I can get done with the Netlify project. I've never used it before, so this will be a good chance to learn it. Also, I want to update my website to remove the links to view the code for my side projects. I recently took down my GitLab instance because I got like a $300 bill from Google because I think my server that hosted my GitLab may have been hacked to do crypto mining. For whatever reason I couldn't view my GitLab instance. Definitely shut that server and others I was playing around with real quick! haha. If I don't have time to follow up with these servers, I have no business setting them up. haha The money I'll be saving from the servers, I'll be putting it into my side project so it can come up.

Have a great night!
