This message, related to the development of the theme, only displays on the localhost homepage to notify you of any important theme changes.

Version 2.0.0 - July 20, 2020

Below are the following changes that could be breaking changes for your site. For more details on any change, please refer to PR #154.

The major breaking change is:

  1. Users that have front matter that utilize images (backwards compatibility for featured and associated parameters still remains) will need to adjust from [images]="SRC" to the new format.
    src = "" // Link to image
    alt = "" // Alt text for image
    stretch = // Optional: See screenshots for referenced values and outcomes

If you utilize any of the following, there might be a breaking:

  1. User custom templates may require adjustment.
  2. User custom i18n languages, or custom templates referencing i18n translations may require adjustment.
  3. User custom template for comments will require adjustment if it uses the theme’s CSS and/or JS.
  4. User custom CSS may need to adjust due to a variety of class name changes and specificity changes.

While I realize this is inconvenient, I hope that it is worth it to you in the long run. Thanks for using the theme, and feel free to submit issues as needed.

Currently SpaceX is building up their network of telecommuncations satellites with the ultimate goal of providing cheap satellite internet globally. As they need to achieve global coverage they have to launch their satellites into different orbits, which means that not every launch will be visible from Europe.

A couple of days ago I was made aware by a work colleague that there will be a nice lineup of Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon this week. Small problem: The lineup is visible at around 4am in the morning and only for about an hour or two. At first I did not want to take photos, because I really don’t like waking up that early, but after some thinking I decided to go for it anyway. After all this is exactly the kind of crazy stuff I love to do, also it was a nice chance to have a reason…

So today I finally managed to release my first post about my exchange semester in Finland. If you wonder why it is not under newest posts, it is because I ‘backdated’ it to January 8th when the images were taken. I explained why I do that in another post. In short I want to keep my blog as a kind of diary and it fits nicer if the images are sorted in chronologically in the order they were taken.
