1 What has changed?

A few changes have taken place on my website, ranging from stylistic differences to a new domain! This is a very brief post to update the readers of what is different, ranked from most to least important.

1.1 Domain

The original domain name, https://brettgilio.ml, is no longer in use. This original domain name was intended to be temporary, and was registered through Freenom. After a conversation I had with a friend it was brought to my attention that Freenom will happily sell your active and registered domain name to somebody else if they are willing to pay a small fee. While this should not be surprising (as nothing on the web is truly free), it was enough of an impetus to provoke a more drastic change.

From now on the website will now be hosted on https://brettgilio.com.

If you follow my RSS feed, or use openring or org-webring, please accordingly update the URL to the RSS feed pointing to https://brettgilio.com/rss.xml.

1.2 Index

The index page is mostly complete (sparing a possible revision of the “About” section). The changes here are mostly for desktop users, where the About/Contact portions have been arranged in a 66%/33% column orientation with some padding.

It was suggested to me to add a total blogfeed to the navigation bar, and only keep the most recent n-number of posts on the index page. This is under consideration.

1.3 Projects

I have overhauled the <detail> element setup in favor of something more straight-forward. However, I am still not overly pleased with this current arrangement either. If you have any suggestions (or examples) of a better layout please drop me an email to ~brettgilio/blog-discussion@lists.sr.ht or brettg@gnu.org.

1.4 Remove MathJax

I have jostled with the idea of how best to embed mathematical notation exported from TeX. I have a few W.I.P posts for the blog on Category Theory, Type Theory, and more which need some way of displaying notation. For awhile I was pretty set on MathJax, but I feel this solution just slowed down my website noticeably.

Currently I am looking into other options, such as embedding SVG. If you have other suggestions (perhaps how best to use MathML), please drop me an email!
