Wednesday! Hump-day: Week One!
I was introduced to Iron Blogger today. I really like the idea, and I'm trying to get some people in on it that are currently at RC. I might setup lazerwalker/iron-blogger on heroku and get that rolling. Or maybe just do something low-tech.
Yesterday, the discussion of a "meet everyone at RC app" came up in my long discussion with Ken. I sketched out some possible UX flows in the morning.
I found that Karl was quite broken, tried fixing it, gave up (and left it in a broken state like a jerk), decided to write from scratch, but did not start on that.
The three weather bots used in the chat room we use for scheduling out daily walks are broken, so I started writing walkbot. I discovered that I do not like Zulip's API, and was writing the bot assuming the API was written differently than it is. I guess I need to change my design to match their python library...
I spent some time and changed my blog design at the request of @reed and @dmpatierno after we chatted on hangouts. I'm not too happy with the current state of how it looks. I need to play around with the layout more. It was also discovered that my SSL cert isn't quite right, so I need to fix that, and also, I want to fix the time formatting on this blog. Maybe if I get some more time I can also add draft saving functionality. I also fixed my twitter posting so if there is a title, it is in the tweet.
I bought tickets for Different Games this weekend, which should be fun.
Things to look into later:
- Add more features to sadnat.com (it took till today to mention sadnat.com in chat! That's a good thing I guess)
