Update #14

Finished exams, but working on paper submission… pretty stressful.

‘Weekly’ update #13

Finished exam yesterday. One left next week. Will try to get some work done on Gamocosm the week after.

Weekly update #11

Well I missed the update last week s: Sorry guys, extremely overwhelmed with RL right now.. I have checked GitHub though, don’t seem to be any issues.

Weekly update #10

Still need to work on updating Cloudflare API… Getting an MRI today :O (Thursday 5 am)

Weekly update #9

Well, I didn’t get any extra work on Gamocosm done after the weekend >< Pretty stressed with problem set tomorrow and midterm on Friday :/ Might be able to do something after handing in the pset…

Weekly update #8

Reading break for school, hope to (finally) do more work this week. Preparing server upgrade (fixing version dependencies). Went through GitHub issues. Fixed GitHub settings so I should finally receive proper email notifications ><

Weekly update #7

I’ve updated the Security and Privacy page with information on user data being stored. I plan to add HTTPS on the Gamocosm server side (currently only HTTPS connection from user to Cloudflare) this week with Let’s Encrypt (during original development and deployment Let’s Encrypt was still in development). The reason this still hasn’t been done sooner is because there will be short downtime as I may need to redirect Gamocosm’s DNS temporarily for Let’s Encrypt verification. I want to make sure I do it properly and have been procrastinating it :sweat_smile:

Reason for delays: I have an important (and hard) midterm this coming week on Wednesday. I’ve also been having particularly bad headaches this past week.

Weekly update #6

This is late again :sweat_smile: but still it’s here now! I started writing up the Security and Privacy page on the wiki, procrastinating on digging up all the references I need :sweat_smile: (I’m intending to do it properly, so it’s not easy!)

Also, I recently got back into IRC, so you can possibly find me as user raekye on freenode.net or esper.net. The #gamocosm channel is on EsperNet, but I “should” always be connected via a “The Lounge” self-hosted IRC client (running 24/7 on a server), so you can direct message me. I’m not sure how often the IRC history “hmmmbot” dies to netsplits or something, and I haven’t seen how well The Lounge handles netsplits/other disconnections, so there’s a chance I lose messages but it should be extremely small. Anyways, the most reliable way to reach me is still by reddit PM. But IRC is back on the table!

Hmmm, not to turn this into a personal depression-blog, but I also have been having chronic headaches since the summer. I’ve seen an optometrist (because at first I thought it was related to my eyes), and have been seeing a GP for several months now (and a social worker and a therapist :sweat_smile: ). The headaches can be pretty bad - up to 6-7 days a week almost continuously (e.g. go to sleep with a headache, wake up with the same headache), and intense to the point I struggle to do any work. Today (Friday, real date of this blog post :sweat_smile: ) was one of those particularly bad days where I could barely even focus to do anything (and yet I still had to force myself to lecture and office hours and finish an abstract algebra problem set). Still haven’t found the cause… It should still be statistically unlikely to be something serious, but I will be getting an MRI sometime maybe in the next month or two. On the off chance I do go completely silent… maybe ‘so it goes’ :P

Weekly update #5

Well, this isn’t looking so good except for the fact I’m still coming back weekly :sweat__smile: Working on problem set and doing stuff for research project.. the Sunday night classic… Ok promise now, no more trolling. Update coming before next Sunday.
