Usually when I am thinking about doing something, I can’t stop thinking about it until I get it done. It’s a good thing, but usually comes with bad consequences. Since I am really busy right now, at least it would be good to write about it and comeback later to do it.

  1. My blog is currently running on WordPress. WordPress is nice, but seems to be overkill for a simple, mostly text blog. Not to mention so many exploits recently (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14263252). What I am going to do is to export all blogs into XML, maybe convert them to Markdown and write a parser to generate static content instead. Comments can  be done using github (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14170041)
  2. I’d like to setup a server at home. I’m graduating and therefore will lost access to my current machines and clusters at my university. And I can’t afford to rent a cloud for my powerful computation. Therefore, I will spend sometime looking for a good Mini-ATX or NUC that will be my basement server for the next 5 years. And a good UPS too. It’s nice that electricity in the US does not get cut off often, but it’s still good to have an UPS for server and router.
