whoa, i've been learning regular expressions* all wrong:

fortunately the source is still on github and it looks like you can serve from the gh-pages branch quite well

oh yeah i'm done with undergrad

it feels a little anticlimactic

this looks pretty and the content seems good but i'm somehow dubious that the colors and the way everything animates onto the screen reflect its own principles...
