Post-migration work: finished up first pass at all posts

I've finished my first pass at fixing up the migrated posts. Now, none of them are horribly broken. I've actually begun a second pass, focusing on more minor details, which I hope will go quicker.

Post-migration work: up to the last eclipse

I'm continuing to fix up the old posts - and have gotten to "A record of the total solar eclipse on 2020-12-14".

Post-migration work: up to the Fuller House review

I'm continuing to fix up the old posts - and have gotten to "Fuller house: a short review". I think most of the remaining posts are fairly small, so I should be able to get through them fairly quickly - although there's further iterations of improvements that will be required for each post, for better […]

Post-migration work: up to the start of covid

I'm continuing to update posts for WordPress, up to the "On the coronavirus" post, and including the two massive posts on Frozen II.

Post-migration work: updating past Jupyter Notebooks

I've updated the Jupyter Notebooks for posts up to this point, which basically means updating them in the resurrection post.

Post-migration work: still working on the interpretation of Genesis

I'm still fixing up things like internal links, headings, and table of contents in the "Interpreting the Genesis creation story".

How to handle the Delta variant

The vaccine may be only 39% effective against infections by the Delta variant.

Granted, this is just in one study from Israel, for just certain kinds of vaccines. But still, I've spent a great deal of time over the last week thinking about this number. Why is this such a big deal? Because, if this is true, and if that 39% holds constants across a variety of circumstances, then we're in a lot of trouble. This would mean that the Delta variant would be unstoppable, EVEN WITH THE VACCINE.

Post-migration work: working through the interpretation of Genesis

I'm continuing to work on fixing up the posts after the migration. I'm on the "Interpreting the Genesis creation story", trying out some of the fancier HTML options.
