Just Do It Challenge: Revival Edition

OP stolen from @Atomic_Charge
RIP in peace

Also academic integrity is important, don’t try to post other’s stuff post your own, you can reference and use other’s stuff but it should not be made entirely out of someone else’s project. We are not thieves.



As a lot of us are currently aware, our community, this forum is very dry in terms of creative content. There really is not that much going on. Only occasionally some people manage to share something that they have personalty made.

What I am trying to get across is that we need to get involved as a community. Share, build and create things that are cool/funny/dumb/controversial. We can’t just call ourselves enthusiasts if we don’t do anything enthusiastic. Enthusiasts share their creations and content with other’s who alike, individuals who are into that sort of stuff. We are lacking in that division of being a community.

I believe that if we show each other that we can accomplish that, we then could inspire others and facilitate intellectual and creative growth here.

As I am well aware, we have people who are studying computer science and general computer related stuff, so I believe that the best way you guys can really advance is by showing what you can do so that others may critique and/or enjoy your content.



overused meme is real

The challenge is simple but it’s up to you how complex it should be.

All that is required is for you is to finish a project that can be whatever you wish, as long as it is made by you and if you desire you may do it with someone else. It can be dumb /funny /inspirational /complex /controversial but as long as it is made by you it is fine.

If you are…
… a programmer… program a tool or a game
… a composer… compose music
… a builder… build a table or something
… a writer… write a fan fiction about the journey the crew had
… a scientist… conduct an experiment and publish a paper
… a bee enthusiast… then build a house for a bee colony
… an editor… film and edit a video
… an engineer… engineer a cool contraption
… an artist… draw…


So to whomever wants to participate, I encourage you and challenge you to do something. REGARDLESS OF YOUR EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS.

The period is 1 month. August 5th-September 5th . THIS IS NOT A HARD DEADLINE. They may be submitted later or earlier. Just try to deliver.
Post if you wish to participate so I can add your username to the list.
At the end of the month we will all submit the projects we have made and digest them together as well.
The projects don’t have to be enormous or difficult(but it’s still encouraged)

When you are done just post the thread where you shared what you have done and tag me so I can begin compiling a document with all the contributions.
Post questions/critique down below and we shall discuss.

People who can’t deliver will be put to shame not really, but try to deliver please. This is for both you and the forum

Also academic integrity is important, don’t try to post other’s stuff post your own, you can reference and use other’s stuff but it should not be made entirely out of someone else’s project. We are not thieves.

If any of you have a blog, github page, youtube channel, souncloud, bandcamp and/or anything where the project could be also posted, provide a link so I can link it next to your username.

You can also post existing forum threads that you will continue to contribute over the course of this month. I will link it as /W.P.I.x/

I’ve been looking for a push to dive back into wallpaper making. This will do.

For the rest of the Month I’ll make High Quality Desktop wallpapers at 3440x1440 using a combination of modding, ReShade, & Lightroom and post them on:
The Official Wallpaper Thread

They’ll be posted Ever Sunday for the Rest of the Month by 20:00 ET.


I’ll start. My latest screw up. 7 months on Linux, 3 months on Arch. I’ll go big, Raid 0 on 2 nvme’s. 4 attempts, and total failure to boot. Asus Zenith extreme, 2950x and 2 970 evos.

I’d join in but knowing myself I’d take a month or more just to decide how I want to go about it. I know, I know. Just have a hard time with the Just do it part of Just do it. :stuck_out_tongue:

Awwww shiiiitttt

I think I’m gonna have to get in on this.


Make a list of things, print it out, throw a dart (or fork) at it.


So since I might be doing a few unrelated things, for tracking purposes should I just link them all in one post, or in separate posts?

First bit for Just Do It™ Challenge:

A new front panel for the 3D printable STX case. Maybe more later?


Alright, for the Just Do It™ Challenge, I’m gonna hop on the youtube moneyz bandwagon.

Yall are gonna see my ugly mug after nearly 5 years.

That and… you’ll just have to watch to see the projects I’m working on.


I’ll throw two Projects in here.

  1. My current attempt at making an SSH Connection Manager for WIndows:
    Creating a SSH Connection Manager for Windows
    Moving target and might change from UWP to TUI, but no matter what, i’ll have an executable that’ll let me Select SSH Sessions at the end.

  2. Since it already has a given deadline: I need to create a piece of music for a good friends twitch stream. It’ll be the first orchestral piece i’ve ever written and it’s freakin’ complicated. Deadline is the 18th of August, so two weeks. Not sure what comes out of this, but i commited to it. Thread will go up later.


whatever you like

Pretty sure you are an automatic ewaste win anyway for help from before if you like! :smiley:

I retract this. Too many issues lining up, too many spanners and curve balls.

I submit this (kinda retroactively):


I’m in. Got a big launch at work, but that means that the pressure is about to be off in a big way.

I’ve got… two things, actually, that would fit the bill.
