Personal website revamped

February 27, 2016 Etc site

It all started with my site based on the SinglePaged theme broken by the Jekyll 3.0 update on GitHub pages. Although Karthik Raman sent a nice pull request with a fix, I opted to revamp my site instead of fixing the old theme.

I really liked the old theme, but there were several reasons for the change:

  • Single paged theme made it hard to see in Google analytics who is looking what on the site, because seemingly everyone looked at index.html.
  • After a while, I wanted real blog and subpages, and I felt more comfortable tweaking Bootstrap/Bootswatch based themes after having spent some time last summer setting up DataCloning.org and species.abmi.ca.
  • I also had a web-update repo in the works, so transitioning was really easy (although migrating content and fine tuning took 3 days).

So here is the result. Let me know if you have comments, suggestions. Hopefully the Disqus widget loads properly below.

What is new in the intrval R package?

An update (v 0.1-1) of the intrval package was recently published on CRAN. The package simplifies interval related logical operations (read more about the motivation in this post). So what is new in this version? Some of the inconsistencies in the 1st CRAN release have been cleaned up, and I have been pushed hard (see GitHub issue to implement all the 16 interval-to-interval operators. These operators define the open/closed nature of the lower/upper limits of the intervals on the left and right hand side of the o in the middle as in c(a1, b1) %[]o[]% c(a2, b2).
