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.

@deianeira Bash for most of the little things.
I previously used Crystal for scripting, but since have moved over to Common Lisp with Roswell and I find it to be very effective.

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?

@tomupom Drupal can be a real drag to work with. I've had on/off 4 years experience working with it and it's not great.
I have found Laravel a better alternative, with more granular control, however you have to create most everything from the ground up.

@0xbiel You should also try Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead if you haven't already, great ascii game
Also, in df after you've grown your world in the normal fortress mode, check it out in adventure mode


I've luckily been able to find free software for almost everything I do professionally, however it would be nice to see FOSS alternatives for:

- Music production software similar to something like Ableton
- Graphic design + UX software that supports multiple artboards similar to Affinity Designer in performance as well as features

@awalvie There are two that I could find that worked via ActivityPub ie can be federated, they might be work taking a look.

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.


@aadil Also, make sure it's accessible for people, which mean following semantic HTML so it can be read properly by screen readers and other accessibility tools.

@npisanti really good design doc, I may give fish a try sometime soon!

@rainonwires If you make some doom wads I will gladly test them out, I love playing new wads I find

@jameschip Immersion is important when learning a language. I speak Greek around my family and am used to hearing it around me, but f I didn't hear the language being used around me often I don't think I'd know it as well.

If you can find a good podcast or show in that language with transcriptions available in English then that may help with immersion and with being able to break down what things mean. I took this approach with Japanese and it helped a lot.

@peregrine Are you using Alpine as your OS? tbh I've only used Alpine for things like Containers and VMs

It's live!

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:
