Yeah in a similar boat, since lockdown I haven't got into anything - prior I was starting out on Python and loving it, then I just felt bleurgh about everything.

I don't code for work so it's purely hobbiest based. Have started to reread the c++ essentials by Meyers, which are heavy but brilliant.

I’ve been playing with algorithms in Python recently to calculate how a record’s exact key in hz changes if a you play a 45rpm record at 33 and vice versa, and how many % plus or minus to hit an exact note.

The end goal is to enter a database of a handful of records and their rpm, original key and bpm - then have an app suggest matches you wouldn’t immediately think of (eg; turns out record x at the wrong speed -2.5% mixes perfectly with record y).

Not sure I’ll do anything useful with it but it’s good to break out of the endless Power BI / SQL I do for a day job.

If I were more focused I’d convert what I have to Android then try and add BPM counting and a basic piano for entering the key but realistically ADHD will find me other new and shiny things to do by the time I get that far.

two weeks pass...

still in the fun-coding doldrums.

but i did realise the little web page display thing that i run on an android tablet to show me what's playing on the jukebox, and whose refresh rate option only goes as low as once-per-minute, might respond to a meta-refresh tag. one line added to the noddy node script and now it updates within 10 seconds of the song changing.
