I'll be on a long weekend to #Budapest with a couple of friends in a few weeks.
We like minimal/dark #techno, and have already spent time at Lärm on a previous visit.
Looking for other places, preferably underground, non-tourist..

@aw Was it any better in the past or is your memory just filtering out the garbage?

@csepp Sort of! Braille is already spatial so I can't move the dots around but I can make almost every letter (except V and Y) intersect with its own dots

The event was held in three locations in three cities ( and ) and was live streamed. I think it ran uninterrupted for 24 hours but due to health stuff and time constraints we were only there for about 6.
Got to talk with a bunch of cool people about art and stuff, which is always nice.
And my soundtrack choices (or at least Migration from Bonobo) were very well received. UwU
It was also a good excuse to introduce Bandcamp to more people.

Yesterday I worked on a painting with a friend that ended up looking fricking cool. She did the lion's share of painting work, I mostly contributed smaller details and some of the layout work and the more geometric stuff that she didn't have as much experience with. She also came up with the concept. It's gonna be auctioned off and the money will AFAIK go to psychiatric hospitals.

I haven't painted since high school, so this was a fun way to try the art form again. UwU

@aw @milofultz I've used idris2 last year for a good while. It was pretty fun. You'll probably need some assert_total and believe_me incantations though, unless you have a lot of free time.

@brendan Maybe you already know about this, but in case you want to optimize cell updates, take a look at the Build Systems A La Carte paper's section on Excel.

@eris Scheme is probably the closest. I've had similar moments of realization in Idris as well, when I found out that interfaces and implicit arguments are basically interchangeable.
Also Lua when I still used that actively. There are some weird bits, but mostly it makes sense. Trying to reimplement the module system in pure Lua for MTA:SA was a fun exercise, it's all so simple.

@azlen Ohhh this would be great for learning.
I wonder if something similar is doable for Braille?

@karolbelina Someone has been messaging me on Guix related communication channels to update the Yggdrasil packages I wrote so I relate super hard.
Thankfully they have since packaged it themselves.

I use and love the sexp output for the rare few apps that support it, like notmuch, and of course xmlstarlet is amazing, but we never did a large scale, ambitious, sexpify everything project like this. The JSON dorks beat us to the punch! We should just shame scoop on the spot.
