So you’ve arrived at my web-journal. Feel free to look around.
You could start with some of the latest notes or latest articles below; or jump right into the full archive of my notes and articles.
Or explore some of my photography, painting. How about a little short fiction and haiku? Maybe some thoughts about the web… Read my physics papers. Find out more about me and this site.
The size of my images changes fluidly with my responsive layout. Since the browser does not know their heights a priori, the space collapses while the images are still loading. Once the images load the entire page reflows and the rest of the content jumps around to make space for them. It would be much better if the space for the images was reserved from the start and, as a bonus, if some lower resolution version of the images displayed, while the images load. Here is how I do it.
Images on the Web have a mind of their own. Want to place two fluid images side by side so that their heights are always equal? Flexbox to the rescue!
I was looking into adding some navigation links to my post feed/archive pages, when I ran into an old confusion of mine. The Web has a completely messed up arrow of time!
Walking through a snow-clad city feels like being in a live version of one of those classic black and white photographs. So here are a few from my walk to work over the last week.
