another two weeks gap. “cut and plug your desires!”
been extremely working on finishing git merge-conflict, but for a full 10 days fixed bugs from existing code along the way. then the day before the deadline i began to work on the UI for it. another empty week is past and i’ll get back to this from next week.

magda proceeded with the design system reference: we managed almost everything, except some extra fancy UI details. most importantly you can get out bits of code from the page fairly easily, and download the whole
css as a file.
went through some substantial changes:
- re-worked out again the footnotes system to be able to function from any text-block (ideally including figure caption); it turned out to be a bit of an awkward approach, but otherwise it would have been necessary to make a patch over the existing markdown plugin (not yet please)
- fixed a longstanding problem with yt-embed thumbnail image quality, by ditching the embed plugin and simply using the
<iframe>embed code given by youtube itself as the basic layer
- implemented new design for landing page
went through second round of changes: did lot of custom kerning, fixed other design details etc. next up: payment integration.
update call and about to sign off this goddamn contract after three months.
