Hi; welcome to my virtual logs.
The Minor Stream can be found here.

Major Stream


Fri Apr 30 19:53:20 IST 2021

 - Emacs has been daemonized;
	 - is self-documenting now
 - A good 6 days of minor discomfort and I'm already experiencing a productivity boost due to coherence of all the utilites

Sat Apr 24 20:08:09 IST 2021

- beginning my stay with emacs soon; the soul of vim continues to live on within Evil.
    - vim has given me a lot and my time with it shall never be forgotten.
- beginning a Latin only stream: where I write only in Latin; should accelerate the process and I'm genuinely excited to write within the linguistic bounds of a 4-year old again.
    - Idea is to capture my progress with latin.
        - Today I begin with the shortest sentence I know:
            - I am.
        - When I die, I'll schedule a push for an:
            - I was.
        - sounds fun.

- have quit social media(deleted accounts : facebook and instagram)
    - had already been off the platforms for a couple of months so this isn't cold-turkey
    - this did put a smile on my face : unexpected energy surge immediately after the deletion
    - ofcourse, other more active forms of leisure are being incorporated
- also quit television and all other forms of visual entertainment (2 days in now)
    - this is cold turkey
    - plan to stick to this for a long time but hard rules are good to avoid loopholes and gray areas
        - no visual entertainment for 30 days : that's pretty simple
            - followed by one movie every weekend post that first phase of weaning off
            - only if I feel like it
- life does seem a bit more boring, which is expected and good
- Sleeping patterns are healthier and lucidity levels are rising fairly rapidly
    - more stable dreams and generally more aware of the REM phase without any surplus significant efforts.
- as expected, a lot of time has been freed up 
    - the key, now, is to mindfully slot in productive activities

Sat Apr 10 10:17:41 IST 2021

- bad week(month?(year?)) sleep wise : need to get that back in check
- starting a log stream for any skills I want to pick up
    - streams are the way to go for intermittent updates and staying on track
- began with the speed reading log today under the meta category
    - not going to post the links for such streams on the major or minor stream
    - so consider yourself lucky if you chance upon them

Mon Mar 22 15:19:38 IST 2021

- finished the project log for CVPR 2021 workshop : AUTONUE after a long time.
- this had been enqueued quite a while ago, need to expedite my execution to logging pipeline.

CVPR 2021 Workshop: AUTONUE 2021

Sat Mar 20 21:26:50 IST 2021

- setup fitness log series with a base post stating my history.

Fitness Log Series Init

Why We Sleep, Matthew Walker

Sat Jan 16 12:36:05 IST 2021

- started with my 6th semester and pretty excited about the courses lined up.
- Also began SICP with Hy, will be posting a lot of updates soon.
- initiating the minor stream today with a bit poetic computer science.

A Brief History of Time, Stephen Hawking

Sun Jan 3 17:17:50 IST 2021

- blogged on recent semester project : wdgaf

WDGAF

Daemonized WSL2

 - have been drilling speed-reading lately 
 - seeing improvements : amped up to read more papers and books
 - observational notes do feel good : the kind of general insight I've seemingly developed feels awesome
 - drew my left hand with my right hand, just out of curiosity probably the first time after kinder-garden
    - they definitely had something right cooking with the kind of stuff they made us do
 - shifted to using the mouse with my left hand - full time
    - slow but definitely improving incrementally: frees up my right for some doodling

Leonardo da Vinci : Walter Isaacson

ML and mathematics blog

Fri Sep 25 15:42:24 IST 2020

- initiated a separate ML and mathematics blog
- will be talking about the research that I consume
- also thinking of some fun personal projects : thinking of some EDA on my Fitbit data
- recently have started being active on kaggle; excited to get into competitive machine learning

WSL2 virtual hard disk issues

Sun Sep 13 21:40:22 IST 2020

- checked out diskpart today.
	- used to optimize virtual hard disks
- will have a post sometime soon regarding WSL with GUI

Goldman Sachs Intern Summer 2021

Sat Sep 12 19:20:37 IST 2020

- Been some time
- finally done with campus interviews for internships (summer 2021)
- got an offer from Goldman Sachs (Summer analyst) : stoked to work with them next summer 
- interview experience following up as a post

Tech stack update

Sat Aug 22 22:06:14 IST 2020

- initialized the tech stack today with the bare-minimum
- change CDN to google photos; code stays on github and photos from google photos.

Descartes’ error

Fri Aug 14 18:29:24 IST 2020

- finally done with DesCartes' error.
- review linked above : nice one overall.
- WebAssembly led me to new horizons:- stack machines and s-expressions 
	- leading me to their alma-mater : Lisp
	- Meta-Programming looks very promising and I'll soon have a post(rambling)
	- I'll be proceeding with Racket

WebAssembly

Mon Aug 10 23:44:53 IST 2020

- first tech post today
- setup categories and tags.
- pretty excited to gain some momentum on this.
- tech stack coming up soon

Fri Aug 7 21:33:14 IST 2020

- no sun rise today, rainy day; the hike was even better
	- a walk in the clouds.
- as I was going to get into javascripts, basic research led me to the idea of
	- WebAssembly
	- Edge Computing
	- writing Web Apps in native code (C,C++,Rust) rather than javascript dialects
- very interesting, and definitely getting in on that
- though learning javascript will still be useful
- the idea of serverless serving is very intriguing though.
- thinking of creating a separate stream for my learning log and my generic log so that things look more structured.

Thu Aug 6 21:56:42 IST 2020

- started working on a personal full stack deep learning project
	- will learn a lot about a range of technologies and tools in the process
- first book review coming soon: Descartes error is turning out pretty good albeit felt like a slog at a point of time
- started solo hiking 2 days ago; tomorrow is the second day; targeting to scale the peak before 0615 IST(before sunrise)
- decided to add a couple of tool stacks to my repertoire soon:
	- javascript and soon its relevant dialects:- they're ubiquitous and will help me understand a lot of the web and build stuff
	- assembly:- I was smitten after I checked a blog post about compiler optimization just cause how elegant it was
	- modern C++ :- already have a head start on this and yes, it's a different language from C++ 11 onwards; the power it gives the programmer is just amazing. What people say is true:- the worst part is that it's too low a level and the best part is it's too low a level.
		- specifically because it's a multiparadigm'd language, I'm interested how a functional approach plays out here
		- getting familiar with it's type system and the idea of perfect forwarding:- the code just feels so much more expressive now.

Sun Aug 2 23:05:33 IST 2020

- setting up some smooth navigation and a way for intermittent updates
- I'm not peculiar, just lazy... ; started using r!date 
	- probably will create a dynamic tech stack page soon
- will set up individual, bare-bones sites for the individual projects and repositories in the projecs if necessary

31 - 07 - 2020

- site live, running
- ready to start kicking out content
- minor tweaks still needed
- resume and project pages need to be updated
- also will setup subdomains for some pages

30 - 07 - 2020

- bought domain : rajpatil.dev
- gTLD with enforced https, plus pretty cheap
- SSL certificate from "Let'sEncrypt" under process (integrated with github pages)
- may take upto 24 hours for the site to be live
