I think once this busy week is over I'll finally start work on a greenhouse and get back into gardening.

Recently started tinkering with Janet, and it's like a tiny version of Clojure which I enjoy.

Looking into utilizing cl-who + Hunchentoot for serving content created from my lisp library, and so far it's been pretty fun/relaxing considering.
Parenscript is nice, however I won't have a need for JS in this project, maybe another one in the future will utilize it.

I've also got the drafts for what will be the physical release designs down along with variants and goodies to go along with purchasing the physical copy - ie. stickers, little poster, etc.

I'm close to finishing my next release. In between work, side-work, moving, writing, language learning, and software projects I've made the time to create something fun and relaxing.

I'm setting up a Gemini server/site using gmnisrv, but running into issues with TLS self-signed cert being recognized by gmnisrv. Has anyone else had this issue?

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

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.

Show thread

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.
