I’m slowly, very slowly, updating the stata-sk project. on the one hand I am not in the best possible state of health, on the other hand my degree of motivation bought dramatically in recent weeks. I’m afraid it may have to end up in the garbage one day or the other.

At this point (order doesn’t matter, or I guess so), I wonder how this whole DC thing is going to end.

Folllowing the recent scandal around DataCamp, I think DataQuest and Exercism remain good online training centers for anyone eager to learn.

Great. Just when I was trying to recompile my Hugo website I noticed that the 0.54->0.55 upgrade just broke everything! And we can see comments like this. I don’t care about performance issue or variable name changes or even Go itself. I just want a tool to build my static pages, using an old theme that I customized to my liking. Anyway, since I no time to fix the Go code for the modified template I use, let’s go back to the previous release (0.54 has SHA 6c0c7919de42ee5d629d3a9786fb111f4498dab3) and pin it for good!

brew uninstall hugo
brew install https://bit.ly/2UxujU1
brew pin hugo

Nothing fancy on Twitter today. The web UI is just poor shit. Try to go back in your browser history, and a different series of posts appears on the very same page you landed on just a few seconds before. Oh, and did you ever manage to find an old posts of yours?

I saw this pandoc LaTeX template popping out on Twitter yesterday. I remember trying it out at some point when I was looking for some good hand crafted templates for R/statistical reports. At that time, many people were also using the Metropolis theme for building slides. I wrote custom templates for both situations, finally.

IB Foundations of Data Science (PDF, 106 pp.). Yet another textbook for learning DS “quickly”. Beware, it relies on Python and is quite mathy.

TIL about Bulma, which is a free, open source CSS framework based on Flexbox. Looks like a solid and lightweight alternative to Bootstrap.

Convert images to LaTeX using Mathpix snipping tool. Maybe one day I will learn that I was wrong about the way I wrote some equations. A little test demonstrated that it works right out of the box with simple expressions:

Mine was, in this particular case:

$$ \hat f(x) = \frac{1}{nb}\sum_{j=1}^n K\left(\frac{x-x_j}{b}\right) $$

I somehow forgot about GitUp. A simple git log and more Magit when required, and I’m generally done with tracking what I’ve done. Of course, this is because I mostly work alone. Anyway, I like it when you have a such a clean and minimal UI which helps to visualize at a glance (or even act on) a full Git repo.
