Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

Transition time and semester approaching  §

So I’ve spent altogether too much time on this recently, a few hours here and a few hours there starting to add up into something that can’t quite be justified this week, but we now have a website.

I said it already, but I may as well say it again: welcome to Leapdragon 2010.

This edition will likely be more fluid than the others. Since I’m now using Drupal to do what I’m doing, there will be more room for experimentation without the worry of breaking things, and also many more modules to play with. There are some things that I’d like to do or add that aren’t here yet, and a few things to be fleshed out and/or cleaned up, but basically…

…this is it.

Meanwhile, Tuesday launches the semester for me. So tomorrow is to prepare and to really haul ass trying to make some more progress on a paper—the last piece of work I still owe—that I have been trying to complete for altogether too long now, a truly embarassing amount of time, in fact.

Speaking of, school is in a strange state right now. We were in an uncomfortable limbo not so long ago over the holiday break. Now we’re in a very comfortable limbo. I’m not sure which one is worse.

Thought for the day: this thing is more interesting when I write in such a way (honestly and naming names, basically) that it tends to get me in trouble. When I water it down to the point that nobody can possibly be offended about anything, it starts to sound like a trite pile of words about nothing in particular apart from the color of my navel.

I miss the way my posts “sounded” a few years ago—more offensive or more risky maybe, but also more insightful and more useful to me.

Gotta run.
