making some good progress on this webmaker

to do before uploading:

still to do:

2021 04 00

web, api

getting news from wikipedia via api?

how to use this api thing to get articles from wikipedia to show up on a page?, will get back to this

web, markdown

running some tests using node to convert markdown. js is always less intimidating when it's over

webmaster.html just tests so far, will add more

getting the hang of this, just gotta rewrite everything into markdown, maybe not everything but most things


this might be my last manual blog post, hopefully have this a little more automated next month.

just finished year one of survey school. summer break, summer jobs, summer love

still tweaking the page styles for this site before i overhaul all the html and make a consistant web layout. i've also been looking into markdown and really enjoy writing with it. this lead down a rabbit hole of static site generators and different approaches to go from markdown (plaintext) to markup (html).

i think the route i like is using node to take a folder full of markdown files and convert them into html.

store markdown articles in a database/folder
store html, css, and js templates in database/folder
parse/convert markdown to html
store html file in database/folder

ideally i would like to have a database/folder tree of txt files, media and templates that i manage instead of all these html files. focus on content instead of tedious bits.

tag idea list:


played with a-frame for the first time in a while. i found i can model in autocad and export to a STL file, open this in blender, save as gtlf file and embed this in an a-frame scene.

got a general idea for a link world, every door takes you to a different webvr world. still have to do a lot to make thing more stable and easy to manage

i am the static

static from a radio

backed up R52 thinkpad windows XP to an IMG file, installed raspberry pi OS to learn more about using linux and have a dedicated machine for talking to my raspberries.

the first thing i tried to set up was an SDR program to use my RTLSDR. i actually forget the results and resources used here, will come back and add more about this

i lost a lot of the links that helped me along the way but will try to build this into something i can follow when i inevitably break it and have to start over

crap doing a dated notebook makes me
strangely aware of time all of a sudden

to-do: start a raspberry pi/micro controller page

(will always be rearranging this order) geouniversal materia materials and chemistry artifacts tech and components circuits electro signals sensors and data cpu processing and memory trajectory rockets and orbits space navigation star maps and solar system models

made a little time to work on schematics
would like to have a lot more on here
plus pictures of them (not?) working

trying to start a web log again, see how long this lasts

current site map and hot ideas:


and image inverter / archive found negatives:

function updateImage(amount) {
  var inverttest = document.getElementById("inverttest"); = "invert(" + amount/100 + ")";

  debug.innerHTML = amount;
