Wow, no blog post in a week? What’s been going on? Well, not a lot. But also quite a bit. This is going to be less of a “normal blog post” and more of a “here’s a random list of things I did.” I’m also going to be trying out the Table of Contents, which should appear to the right above the menu.
Most recently, I’ve updated the theme to v2.1.1. For some reason, I couldn’t just run:
git submodule update --remote --merge
Instead, I downloaded the theme manually and replaced the existing folder with the new one. This was fine because I didn’t make any changes to the theme other than the config file.
The two main changes were the new search option and a fix for dark images in dark theme.
Notice how that image isn’t dark anymore. Before, it would be at 60% opacity, making it really weird. Now, let’s take a look at something interesting.
The data is from 6-15 (first day of the site) to 6-25 (yesterday). Why is there a person from China and Spain on my site? Why is someone on my site at 5 AM? Why is there no light theme option for Google Analytics? (Sorry dark mode users.)
Ranked came out a few days ago, and of course I had to grind out my placement matches.
For those of you not familiar with the ranking system, Iron 1 is the lowest rank and Radiant is the highest rank. Ranking up increases the number (Iron 1 to Iron 2 to Iron 3), and then it goes to the next rank (Iron 3 to Bronze 1, Bronze 3 to Silver 1, etc.). In the beta, I placed in Bronze 1 (I thought I would be gold/platinum) and climbed to Gold 2. I was surprised to place in Gold 3 this time!
Future Blog Post Ideas
To finish off, here are some cool ideas that I want to explore and write about. These are in no particular order:
- Locating submarines in the Arctic using calculus
- Choosing a major: aerospace/mechanical engineering vs computer science
- 3D printing and stuff with Blender
- Minecraft 1.16 speedrunning
- Floating points
