Nyuwa mends the epigraph

Nyuwa, the mother goddess of Chinese mythology, mends the sky according to an ancient Chinese legend. Today, Nyuwa is asked to mend the epigraph of a continuous function over an open set so that the function becomes convex. What can we say about this?

Blogging my blog

A meta-blog that keeps the trace of my blog site. The accessibility of mathematical equations has been improved!

La composition soignée des formules mathématiques

It is widely spoken that the Equation Editor of Word (OneNote / Office) is inferior and harder to use than LaTeX. While this is true for a hardcore user, a lot of people spreading the word aren’t really understanding the thing and are just parroting others. I suspect that for a lot of them, the ability to efficiently typeset beautiful mathematical formulae is limited by knowledge and carefulness. People don’t seem to care enough to learn and correctly employ the tools at hand.

Default font smoothing parameters on MacBook Pro 13-inch might be suboptimal

Having received my MacBook Pro 13-inch, I started to alternate between my Surface Book and MacBook, to get used to macOS and keep everything synchronised. Today when I was transcribing my notes to OneNote, I noticed a rendering problem on the screen. Propaganda (from Apple fanboys) has it that macOS supports high DPI displays well (of course including its very own screen), it turns out the story isn’t as true as the propaganda claims. Later, it was revealed that the reason is font smoothing is on (by default for me), and turning it off resolves the problem.

Allen School 配发的 MacBook

UW CSE 的 PhD 要约信中提到新入学的研究生都会获得一个免费电脑(有多种选择),我选了(标准选项里的)MacBook。这篇博文记录我初探 macOS 的事情。作为探索结果,我居然又给微软报了一个 bug!

In memory of a nightmare: solving linear equation over PID

I had a maths-related nightmare that (initially) was concerned about counting solutions of a linear equation modulo M with integral coefficients. Though the whole detail of the dream cannot be written down due to privacy reasons, at least I can write a simple introduction on solving this specific problem here. Update: An error in the original solution has been corrected. Another update the same day: The original solution is correct.

Christmas Easter ‘Bomb’ of Ant Design

A commit to Ant Design, an enterprise-oriented open-source Web UI library by Ant Financial (蚂蚁金服), on 10 September 2018 buried an Easter egg for Christmas, which has caused a heck of havoc since Christmas. This entry also talks about not-so-obvious features in my blog.

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu 一周目通关

我感恩节期间买了 Nintendo Switch,是为了玩 Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu,也就是《口袋妖怪·é»„》的重制版,为此我还配上了 Pokéball Plus(配信梦幻的精灵球形状的遥控器,也可以作计步器用)。刚刚结束一周目(登入名人堂),写篇博文记录一下。
