I applied classic debugging principles to my car, disconnecting one thing after another until I found a problem, defined what it was, split the problem into manageable chunks and fixed the obvious one (the underside of the fuse box had a hole melted in it below a relevant relay). Next I'll have to run it through QA (rev the hell out of it and see if it fails).

While I was out working on it, a new neighbour I'd never spoken to solved another mechanical problem by rocking up to me and showing me a picture of a pair of pliers on his phone. We figured out through gestures that what he wanted was more like grips and I lent him some, despite having barely any language in common.

Feels good to make progress, even if there ends up being more wrong with the car than my first round of bug fixes.

My win this week was mapping out a for fun blog post but not feeling the pressure to get it written up this week, and instead giving myself a break to write it next week. So I guess that's sort of two wins - outlined a blog post and relaxed!

I've been working on a clone of the urbanoutfitters website as my first big project and it's really satisfying seeing the progress of the website :) In particular, I'm a lot more confident in using flexbox. Here's the project if anyone wanted to give some critique

Worked on an group assignment for a CS class I'm taking which involved each of us creating a design and testing plan for a programing project. Then we evaluated each other's plans and voted for the best one to submit for our group. My plan was selected as the one to submit. 😊

Managed to get through a couple twitter courses, worked on a breakout game based off of Javascript. Managed to read a few chapters of my book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad".

I think it was a very productive week.

Hope everyone had a great week as well!

I was working with ELECTRON for a long time and made a lot of projects but the thing I found hard is to persist the data. So I created a package that helps saving data in a JSON file and it watches the object data for any change and updates the JSON file. Also, you can store different types of data each one in a separated file, for example, one file for storing data and the other for storing the user preferences such as dark mode if it's enabled or not. And the beautiful thing is that you can choose to encrypt the data in the JSON file.

See the documentation:

If you liked this package leave a star in the GitHub repo

Finishing a homework project for Principles of Programming Languages on Continuations.

Was this an online course? And is Continuations something related to monads?

This is part of my undergrad degree in computer science. My understanding is that continuations can implement data structures, classes, objects, and yes even monads. But monads are a more abstract concept.

Rewrote my portable web client library and added support for Grpc with .Net

Also figured out how to get my shared proto files to show up in the import path of any project using the package so i can embeed reusable messages.
