This company is trying to create a more modern Lisp machine built upon CADR. They released 1.0 last month, they're making some awesome progress on this.

HTML and CSS simple tips and tricks for your website. :cooldog:

The goal is to help you with easy tricks to make the HTML of your website accessible, readable by everyone and optimized for low bandwidth. I cover a LOT of things in these 20+ pages of text and I still need to add one or two more.

I'll share some parts in the next days, thanks for everyone who took time to proofread this huge beast. :tealheart:

I spent the morning creating an Org-Roam directory that contains all my org files with an index that references each one.
Now that the basis for what will be my private wiki is setup I can start filling it out with info regarding projects for clients, papers I'm writing, Blog drafts, server info, etc.
I can see myself using this for the foreseeable future as a sort of database of all the things I'm working on.

Working on cloning my desktop Manjaro/KDE setup to my spare Thinkpad so I'm not reliant on my desktop as much and can have the freedom to move around if I need.

x200 Machine Update 

I configured Guix to work how I like with ratpoison as my wm of choice with everything pretty much being centered around using emacs
So far it's mainly been understanding the quirks of the Guix system that is somewhat frustrating, but it'll take time to learn

Show thread

When you think about it on a global scale, it's immensely distressing how much of the world commits their lives to things that will never bring them joy.

x200 Machine Update 

Guix is back up and running, I decided to just stay with ratpoison as my wm for the time being.
It seems like there's an issue with closing the x200 lid that causes x to freeze my computer, so I'll be making the move to sway again and remove gdm.

There's some things to do, but everything works and I'm able to use emacs how I like and edit system files with no issue. I don't have much going on so it's nice to work on something new.

x200 Machine Update 

Something happened with or bash, I'm not sure so having to start over again, which isn't a big deal.
I'm trying to find a way to remove gdm and just have the TTY rather than a login screen like my x200 had before.
Sway and wayland are really neat, but was running into issues with running wayland and X at the same time which wasn't the intention.

Lot's of learning but really rewarding setting this up and figuring out how Guix works.

x200 Machine Update 

So I've installed Guix, setup emacs, and now I'm configuring sway and wayland on my machine.
So far Sway's config is just like i3, so I'm hoping to take my old config and trim down all the commands I didn't use. After I setup Sway how I like my system will be ready to go which is awesome.

x200 Machine Update 

Taking the plunge today by formatting my SSD and installing Guix.
My arch build was having issues with the amount of AUR packages I had installed which was against what I was after with minimalism and simplicity.
Now I'm just having this machine focused on Emacs+Guix+Guile+Lisp work and not having many 3rd-party programs outside of Emacs if possible.

x200 Machine Update 

I'm thinking about trying Guix+Sway as a replacement for Arch+i3 on my x200 machine.
Since moving towards an emacs-focused workflow I've been looking for alternatives.
I'll start messing around with VMs next week and create a blog post on what I find.

The new A11y Project website is stunning. Tatiana Mac has really proved that accessible design can be beautiful inside and out. 😍 👏

Also I’m totally thrilled to have Accessibility For Everyone featured on there. What an endorsement! 💚 📗

webdev 

I believe I've reached a wall in my current project.
It seems the amber framework relies on webpack and subsequently jquery to handle csrf tokens.

I've since removed all JS/Webpack from the project and have got everything except delete requests working, not sure why.

I'm having now to figure out how to solve this with minimal or no JS and it's proving difficult.

Tomorrow I hope to figure this out and work on the last bit before launching v1

I hope when crystal moves to v1.0 that they rethink or expand upon how shards are handled shards because right now they're hosted mostly on GitHub, and if the repo changes all projects that rely on that shard will be broken.

Maybe not a CDN but maybe some form of caching could solve this. My amber project had to redownload all the assets after failing six times, I could image this being more frustrating if I was deploying live or something.

RE: Gitea, federation 

With more Gitea servers out there I wonder if Gitea could be improved with some sort of federation, allowing people across servers to contribute and such. Would said federation take away from the privacy-focused approach some of these providers take?

I've got two new pages planned for my blog as well as a rewrite of the homepage to link to more pages. I've also got some posts lined up, I'm just working on the drafts in an org doc.

Maybe in the near future I'll write an SSG that converts a single org file - or multiple - into a static site, that would be interesting.

I'm debating whether or not to play around with HackLang by converting some old php projects with. It looks very interesting and I'm curious to see how usable it would be in a production environment.
