OSS - 

Watching some random dude making large PRs on an OSS project as first issues, declaring what's bad and what's good in the world.

math authoring 

author: my work is fairly easy to understand.

also author:

mathjax v3 

I guess it shows that I'm working on upgrading the AMS's production system to v3.

vartheta has quite some swagger in both.

stix1 vs stix 2 

The mathcal C should be voiced by Antonio Banderas.

name that glyph 

Could you identify this image without context? (no image alt given).

stix1 vs stix 2 

Follow up:

\sum _{\underline{J} \in mathcal{J}}

STIX1, I don't even know what's going on there with the J.

STIX2, not well designed for this particular case of mathitalic J vs mathcal I (of course mathcal J is very distinct)

stix1 vs stix 2 

On the right, STIX1, on the left stix 2 rendering of \mathcal{U} = \{U_1,...,U_n\}

That's some terrible mathcal U, STIX1.

Gmail on Firefox 

"Offline unavailable.

Yeah right.

TeX in real life 

The cases and empheq packages are a bit of bad style for my taste. And terrifying to do with MathJax due to continued lack of rowspan.

equation layout, accessibility 

From "The Calculus of Calories": Hall's model refining the energy balance equation tracking oxidation rates of carbohydrates, fat, and protein.
