F-ing up your schedule 

This funny feeling when you wanted to go to bed "couple of hours"™ ago, and you understand that it is "too late"® only after starting a text to a friend with "good evening" and getting a reply "It is 6 am, WTF?"

Arxiv rant 

Arxiv guys are something special. First they demand TeX sources for the papers (because pdf, if you didn't know, is a bad distribution format according to them), but introduce half a million of arbitrary constraints (like, "update your bbl file, we don't want to run pdflatex several times! And btw, your biblatex version is too new!"). And then, instead of fixing anything of the above they are implementing new and new checks to catch people uploading pdf w/o tex source....

The most exhausting part of building a static website these days is finding a theme that doesn't require a gazillion third party assets.    <WebDev rant> 

not limited to:
- Google Fonts, Analytics, TagManager
- Cloudflare
- DeliverJS
- Cloudfront
- other third party crap
- tracking all over the place

Are today's WebDevs unable to create themes that only use *first-party* assets and degrade gracefully without .js so at least the main nav still works?

My theme quest…
