Welcome to my website! ๐ŸŒท

Introduction ๐Ÿ›€

Hey, everyone! This is Sandy. Welcome to my website - circa 2007

I don’t really use facebookโ„ข or MySpace, so this webpage is kind of my home on the internet now. I do my online articles here, weekly quotes, webpage updates, the good stuff, etc. I really enjoy having a personal website. There is something profound about Web 1.0, like burger.com and fmboschetto.it. Maybe more people will try to have their own website that allows them to modify it in any conceivable way. Please enjoy!

Other cool stuff

Here are some presentations made for academia (tutoring, fun topics, etc.)

My favorite movies ๐ŸŽฅ

I love movies and I think movies deserve a separate full section on my website. Well, I have taken a Film class my freshman year and I loved it. Just a class about trash movies. Talk to me about that! Alright, here is the list:

  • The Godfather

  • The Godfather Part II

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey

  • The Big Lebowski

My favorite shows & soaps ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿงผ

Shows can even have more of a profound effect than movies. Watching a good show and its experience can even be aphrodisiacal

  • Pride and Prejudice (1995 by BBC1)

  • Twin Peaks

  • Boston Legal

  • Neon Genesis Evangelion

  • Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

My favorite books ๐Ÿ“š

Reading makes me sleepy, but here are some that give me good dreams:

  • Anna Karenina

  • Solaris

  • The Tao of Pooh

  • A Doll’s House

  • Foundation series

This Website ๐ŸŒ

I love typesetting tools. In my experience, I have used and written articles and papers using the following list of tools: LaTeX, groff, markdown, Org-Mode, asciidoctor, HTML, plain text. I had to decompress Word files and wrestle with raw XML files there, what a trip that was.

This beautiful website typed in Org-Mode and built using Asciidoctor. The source code is here.

It is one of my dreams to typeset documents and books like Brian Kernighan:

Good stuff

I wish to share this beautiful song with you
