For some reason, I find the idea and the ability to sacrifice something today, in order to gain something tomorrow powerful. I don’t yet know whether I am good at it or not — my best guess is that it depends on my outlook at the moment.

Planning to spend the weekend reading/watching H2O stuff:

I intend to use the latest major version of H2O (3.x) which has been recently released.

It might be a little hasty of me to try and figure out the future of this blog given that I restarted posting here only two days ago, but there are some things that I find restrictive about wordpress.com sites:

• the inability to have a full $\LaTeX$ implementation. The default $\LaTeX$ only comes with the amsmath, amsfonts and amssymb installed and that is not likely to be enough in the long run. On the other hand, WP QuickLaTeX, for wordpress.org, provides fully featured $\LaTeX$, including support for TikZ and pgfplots, which I find extremely impressive.

• for the same reason as above, that is, the lack of custom Javascript on blogs, it is not possible to use Google Analytics tracking on wordpress.com websites

So, over the next couple of days, I will be evaluating a couple of options to move this site back to self-hosted, including:
