We planted a ton of veggies/berry bushes in the ground this year, not know if anything will take off. I was really disappointed when after a couple weeks nothing was doing anything and things were dying.

But now most of it is coming up and doing great, it's an awesome feeling. Some of my plants have died, but I am learning a lot.

Learning can be much more valuable than blind success.

@_discovery thanks for the catch! I desperately need to run these through a spell checker before putting them up 🤦‍♂️

@tomupom Thanks!

I also realized I need to find some nice fonts for this...

I finally got around to making a wiki

kyleperik.com/

Let me know what you think. I'm hoping it can serve as my sole container for any blog articles or light documentation on my projects. I'm excited to fill it up in the coming years.

@sir This is a fantastic site and a great walkthrough. I'll be sure to bookmark this for reference

I thought this was awesome when I found it, the word kefir might have originated from the Turkish word keyif which means to feel good

I've been drinking it daily for the past several years and I can attest, every time it gives a weird sense of contentment

Also it's delicious with chopped apples and a bit of lime 😝

I created what I've been wanted to make for a while, a priority todo list which which literally inflates the most important items.

kyleperik.com/todo/
Write a new todo in the textbox, and Return to create it. Tab and S-Tab to move between items. Up and Down arrows to re-prioritize. Press Return on an item to mark done, and Backspace to delete one.

I'm putting all my plants in the ground tomorrow, and it's going to be a big project.

Looking back, I went from knowing nothing about gardening to being a plant freak in about 2 years. But honestly I wish I got into it earlier. It's extremely therapeutic and helps my family and me to be more healthy and self-sufficient. I think it's helped me get through some depressing times.

Me at 9: "I can make anything!"

Me at 16: "Everything has already been made"

Me a couple years ago: "Everything that has been made is awful and I need to remake it"

Me now: "Gosh I'm just awful at making anything myself"

@dualhammers I know, it's never looked like that before, I think it's because I did my second proof in the fridge...

@dualhammers I really enjoy the act, but I also value other's input.

That's a hard question...

My drive comes from the act, but there is a part of me that wants to see what I do succeed and be valued by others.

I feel like my projects never come up to their full potential. I either lose motivation or I don't wrap them up and spread the word well enough to make it feel meaningful. Any advice?

One of the more interesting loaves I've baked recently...

@whtrbt thanks haha, that was pretty much the sole motivation for using that symbol, it looks like a loop

I have an idea for manipulation of lists. Criticism is appreciated

I would add one symbol '@' that "unravels" a list into it's contents in order to manipulate it as if it was a single instance

numbers = [1, 2, 3]
@doubled = @numbers * 2
doubled = [2, 4, 6]

So this allows mapping. Filtering can also be done similarly by taking advantage of the logical aspect

numbers = [-1, 0, 1, 2, 3]
@result = :[
r = n * 2
n > 0
]~[n = @numbers].r
result = [2, 4, 6]

@whtrbt I do like that, and it's not to far off from python. I'd like to avoid the special keywords if possible... using something that can be built in to the language.

But to contrast, I think javascript's built in list methods are clunky. `.filter(...).map(...)` make for long lines or oddly placed line breaks.

I think it's a tricky balance but I'm really curious to what could be.
