Haha Rockets go BRRRRRR

So SpaceX's rocket launch is today!

SpaceX is probs one of my favourite companies, so I'm kinda excited.

It'll be the first manned mission in America in 9 years, and the first manned mission SpaceX has ever done, so hope it goes well!

And in honour of that, I made my first ASCII animation, and this is also my first Python project!

Full screen is recommended.

Enjoy :)

Warhawk947

@DannyIsCoding lol easter egg :)

CodingGoose

@Warhawk947 Sadly, I can't watch the whole thing, because the launch live stream is very late for me :(

DynamicSquid

@DannyIsCoding lol, also, awww... :( but you can always watch it later though

CodingGoose

@DynamicSquid Yes, that's true. I love the title btw. XD

DynamicSquid

@DannyIsCoding thanks! yesterday I actually got first place in a Kahoot with that name

CodingGoose

@Warhawk947 Sadly yes:( I'll watch some of it and the replay tomorrow.

@DynamicSquid you might need to go very far back bc the live stream is still going it says it started dec 2018 so like more than 1 whole year

zplusfour

cool, but what is spaceX?

DynamicSquid

@ZDev1 you don't know SpaceX??? it's basically a private space company owned by Elon Musk, they're the first to launch, then land the same rocket. Here's an intro to him

zplusfour

@DynamicSquid sorry i don't know it :(

DynamicSquid

@ZDev1 no, it's fine - think of it as Nasa, but better

zplusfour

@DynamicSquid wait ik this guy but idk his name lol

DynamicSquid

@CodeLongAndPros oh yeah, I know that, but when I realized I made the falcon heavy, it was a little late to change it. but thanks!

CodeLongAndPros

@DynamicSquid
sed 's/heavy//g'

DynamicSquid
CodeLongAndPros

@DynamicSquid Run this in the repl shell:
cal | sed 's/0/o/g' | sed 's/1/l/g'

DynamicSquid

@CodeLongAndPros it doesn't work

CodeLongAndPros

@DynamicSquid What's the error? cal and coreutils are installed.

DynamicSquid

@CodeLongAndPros it says invalid sytax

CodeLongAndPros
DynamicSquid

@CodeLongAndPros yeah, the black box

CodeLongAndPros

@DynamicSquid Press Ctrl-Shift-s and try again.

DynamicSquid

@CodeLongAndPros it's still not working :(

CodeLongAndPros
DynamicSquid

@CodeLongAndPros oh that's pretty cool

CodeLongAndPros

@DynamicSquid I updated it to use e for 3.
You can actually do any replacement:
sed /s/old/new/(put a g here if you want to 'replace all')

DynamicSquid

@ZDev1

1) The ISS needs to rotate their astronauts
2) There's no Corona virus in space
3) The astronauts self quarantined for 2 weeks

So don't worry! Everything's fine here :)

zplusfour

@DynamicSquid

DynamicSquid

@AnthonyValdes Really? It works for me. Press the green arrow and wait for a few seconds

[deleted]

@DynamicSquid
Now it worked. It was probably ChromeOS glitching.

iocoder

Cool!

DynamicSquid
xxpertHacker

I'm honestly ashamed...

Not hating, but that's not too high quality code.

Also, since you're barely starting Python I wouldn't expect much out, but just something for future reference: Using pythons curses module.

awesome10

@StudentFires why? its a simple way to open like 5 million files so that you can print them easily. i do that in code too

DynamicSquid

@StudentFires yeah I agree, that's not the best, but I don't know any other way. And was thinking about curses, but I'm still trying to figure out that tutorial. This is my first python project after all

xxpertHacker

@awesome10 You shouldn't be opening 40 files, if the data is all in one.

xxpertHacker

@DynamicSquid Honestly I hate it, but I just realized that this could've even been colored.

oignons

I like the new pfp @DynamicSquid! Is is for Pride?

DynamicSquid

@ipastrano yup :)

oignons

@DynamicSquid Nice! I'm trying to make a good one atm :)

DynamicSquid

@ipastrano cool! the one you have right now isn't that bad

oignons

@DynamicSquid I'm trying to overlay a hurricane
