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).

# 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...
