This will probably be the only META post in this blog so I’ll try to be as foreseeing as I can.
“How much time do you have to work on this ?”
Until September, when I’ll enter a CS private school, I have all the free time I want to learn new things and to talk about it on here.
It means, (1) that I will have enough time to answer to every comment, (2) enough time to edit posts for mistakes, and (3) even enough time to write about something that you suggest.
I have no particluar reason of having a blog. I use it to take notes of things. Now I’m also trying to make these notes readable.
“You seem to write at random,
sometimes writing about Lisp, sometimes about C, sometimes about Japanese…”
Aaaaaaand it won’t get any better.
Anyway, since I ﬁnally noticed that I actually have readers I will try to organize future posts into series; even though I will continue the random posting in between.
Why do I do this ? Simply because this has been my way of learning things since forever. When I’m stuck at something, I usually bruteforce it for like several weeks; which can be pretty disheartening at times. When times like these occur, I switch down to another domain of interest only to come back after a certain time. (Often to ﬁnd dealing with the ~hard topic easier than the ﬁrst time.)
It doesn’t mean that I never work onto something straight from A to Z, it just explains why I seem to work through 2 or 3 books at the same time.
“Will you ever write posts in French ?”
Maybe. But if I do, it will be on another blog.
“What are some off-topic things that you like ?”
Those include but are not limited to,
Those are the topics I’m the most likely to write about at this time. Other domain of interests include world history, to illustrate this.
“Are stupid questions authorized in the comment section ?”
They are encouraged.
“Is it okay to post reactions in comments ?”
It certainly is.
In fact I would be ﬂattered.
“Can I comment on very old post ?”
“Do you plan on writing about difﬁcult topics ?”
Yes I do. I was good at maths back in high school and I plan on continuing being just as good by learning more about the theory behind computer science.
I’ll write about (ie.) data structures and neural networks with a bit of maths in mind, although I won’t throw black boxes formulaes everwhere on the page just to discourage you; don’t worry.
Now remember that due to english not being my maternal language, there are things I simply cannot write about yet because of a lack of vocabulary, although I’m working on this.
Also I am not a math teacher so I can help readers grasp what a partial derivative is when dealing with neural networks but that’s all.
“How do I keep track of new posts ?”
I’m using some software to keep track of changes; new posts included.
Just add this feed to your favorite newsreader.
When a new post is out, the message will tell you so. It will also contain every single change I make to earlier posts and to the static site generator.
On the same matter, I plan on using the /last directory to hold a copy of the last post.
You can also click on the Neocities button on top-right to get some minor updates.
“How can I help you ?”
In that order.
Now for the boring questions.
“Will there be ads or anything like that on the site ?”
Clearly, no. First of all I wouldn’t make any money out of it and second of all it might annoy certain readers.
I am not against advertising in general. There just will be no ads on this site.
“How much does it cost to run this blog ?”
If you still have questions: ask them in the comments. Personal questions are, of course, authorized.
Thanks for reading,
See you in space :)
