It's easier to write a diary in one html file. It's so simple and easy to keep writing. To be honest I imitated Prof. Hal tasaki's diary style, he's been writing his diary in this format for more than 10 years. So I respectfully imitate what he has been doing even before I was born.
I created a Minecraft Server on Google Compute Engine yesterday, it's really fun to play minecraft with my friends. It is such an incredible game. I played it like 6 or 7 years ago and now I enjoy playing. Amazing Game. And I was surprised how easy it was to build a minecraft server on google cloud platform. I just clicked a few times and here it is. THIS IS 2020 THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Today I started LeetCode. I wanted to do it a little bit when I entered uni but somehow I became to dislike it. But I applied some software engineering internship this summer so I think I have to do this anyway to prepare interviews or something? I don no. And I opened up LeetCode.com. I am already familiar with programming, so I think if I prepare enough I can solve these problems easily. Although it's not the case because I never tried hard problems just solved three easy ones on the top page. Overall, I don't like this kind of activity. I don't know why but I think I don't like studying only for exam at school so I think this leetcode things also applies studying for exams.
Ok, but I'm curious about efficient data structure and algorithm so it is kinda enjoyable than some studying for boring examination. I googled about how to pass software engineering interviews and I found this book is used by everyone who wants to pursue SWE jobs. So I'll read it, i don't know I want to get a SWE job though. Wait a second, this book covers only Java? OK, I won't read it.

Minecraft is super fun, incredible, superb, delusional, and intelligent game.
Online courses are good, indeed. I've been thinking why every professors don't provide enough resources online for students. It is true that some profs have to take care of a lot of things to let the resources be on the Internet like they have to hide some NDA infomation from the ppt slides. But many profs could release their materials easily just by putting them on the universities's website. Why not? I suppose they don't know how effective and useful the online resources are, because they haven't experienced these learnings that fully utilizes the Internet. They should take one of the great courses online such as Coursera, edX, Udemy, and lecture videos on YouTube. In fact, there's no reason students have to sit down and listen their lectures in the classroom to learn something. It is just we have been doing these types of learning to this day. No one knows how effective these kinds of teaching compared with other kinds of teaching because they rarely tried new forms of activities, education. Maybe just I don't know the case, yes, I don' know the reality. But what I want to say is that they should consider what they are doing and sometimes I hope they try completely different types of education.
And here comes the Coronavirus. To be honest I hope these online learning waves continue.
And I somewhat disappointed when some prof says that he starts to realise that the experience of online learning is not so bad as he expected. No, they should've expected that online learning is not that bad thing at all. They should've used them in comibation with usual classroom education. Students could review, rewatch, reread materials. Some students don't like the classroom, don't like studying with so many people, some like to study alone. If they could provide enough options, variety of students (which means more students) can learn things deeply and effectively. Although they have to take some time to prepare for online education, most of them already have ppt slides, drafts on the blackboard. Plus, they consume the same effort to offer the education every single year. BUT once they prepare their contents online, they can reuse these materials every semester and they could use more time to talk, discuss, or chat with their students. WHY, PLS TELL ME WHY MANY PROFS DON'T USE THE INTERNET AT ALL. yeah there are some super great profs who use the Internet perfectly.

I upload this website on the rented server via GitHub Actions. Until recently, I had been uploading them using the FTP software like FilaZila, but I started to use git and github actions to update my site. It is super useful, just by executing one bash file I can update my website really easily. That's why I started this one file diary thing. And leetcode record, classes record, etc. I simply recommend you guys to use github actions if you upload some html files via FTP like me.
Here's the super easy FTP deployment using github Actions. SamKirkland/FTP-Deploy-Action
