To the young, how often have you heard the following?

Yes! I’ve got x likes!

Hey, why didn’t you like my photo on Instagram?

Have you seen my story on Snapchat? WHAT? You don’t have Snapchat?


Refining My LaTeX Workflow and Settings

25 Aug 2018   coding  0

It has been slightly more than I year that I have started using $LaTeX$. As I gain familiarity with the typesetting language over this time, I have also gained more confidence in dealing with its package management and locations of its files and folders. Now, I have a workflow and environment that I am relatively happy with.


Making the move to Gitlab

17 Aug 2018   technical  0

I’ve moved! Yet again! This is my second migration now; first from Blogspot to Github Pages, and now from Github Pages to Gitlab Pages.

$\to$ $\to$

I usually hesitate to migrate, since migration means that I would need some way of informing readers about the move. One solution is to set up a page on the old address and have them redirected to the new address, which to some extent can be an elegant solution, but it is not necessarily the best.

I did that, and you can see the page if you visit the old address on Github.

The page is simple and easy to build, still needs a bit of work to be more mobile-friendly, but it does the job I want it to now.


Making the move to Linux

Before criticism ensues, let it be known that I love the macOS. I have used macOS for almost 8 years, on two 13-inch MacBook Pro’s. I love how I am free from the nightmares that I have had, as a much younger child, with Windows; I love that I have Retina Display; I love that I have a system that looks nicer than almost every other Window system that I have seen and come across; I love how I have, which I have come to learn later on, a UNIX-like environment, which enabled me to, and later on I did, learn how to work comfortably in a shell. As I came to own an iPhone, I enjoyed having iTunes and iCloud sync across my devices; no longer do I have to manually move music files into an SD Card for my phone, no longer do I think about leaving important notes on my computer while not being able to access them anywhere else (I have never owned an Android device, and I loathe the day that I have to use one).

Deeper into that seemingly bottomless body of water



Ricing macOS

I’m not someone that can really hide my excitement at seeing beautifully crafted setups; my last post about ncmpcpp is a proof of that. Well, sort of. I’ve dreamed of having my own setup for the longest time, although it is only until recently that I started to pay more attention to automation tools and tiling window managers. Of course, there are no tiling window managers that work natively on macOS, but that does...


Revamped Site Comment System

18 Nov 2017   siteupdate  2

This post is written using terminal vim, with i3-gaps as tiling manager, all on an XOrg server on a Windows OS :wink: But I shall leave that in another post to talk about.

While this site originally relied on Disqus for its commenting system, I have decided to entirely replace that dependency with a system that is more design-customizable. Disqus has more features, indeed, allowing me...
