Hi! I go by opfez and I'm a person deeply interested in exploring computation and learning new concepts and ways of thought. I'm fond of small communities like tildes and this instance; there's a certain aesthetic to them I very much admire. I'm excited to be a part of this community and getting to know you all!

Added support for tables in my markup language for my wiki. Now, time to make some comparisons and put it to use.

Does anyone know a good resource for learning Russian? I know basic stuff, but I'd love to have a book or something to learn conjugation and other grammar.

@tty Hi! I think the subjects you post about are really interesting, so I'd love to be able to follow you and/or talk to learn more about this stuff~

Does anyone know any good material (books, tutorials, etc.) for getting into APL? It looks interesting and I'd love to learn a bit.

i wish more places that are "programming discussion" were more for "programming, the artform // programming as a means of production" and not "programming the profession"

reddit is especially bad for this

Huh, didn't know you could make links have text surrounding them as part of the CSS of a web page (the "content" tag of a:before and a:after). Gonna use that now so copy pasting stuff from my page is easier.

Not been finishing projects in a while, and for a stupid reason; I just keep switching between languages. I'm just tired of C (basically the only language I "know") and want something higher level, but I can't find it, whatever it is.
I just want to make things again, I hope I find something soon to stick to. Have anyone else felt this way before? How did you get out of it?

the fall 2021 tape is out now! apologies this one took so long, life is busy & life with a newborn baby is triple-busy.

as mentioned in the liner notes, cover art has been added to all the mp3 files so, if that's your thing, snag the files again or grab the archives!

Woo, made my first compiler! It's for a terribly unexciting 4 instruction stack based language, and it compiles to x86_64 assembly.

I wonder why functional languages tend to have pretty bad tooling compared to other languages. The Haskell package manager, Cabal, only works like half the time and I can't even install Agda through it.
Perhaps it's because of their relative nicheness compared to languages like Go/Rust?
But then, Common Lisp (yes, not very functional I know) is pretty obscure and has an amazing package manager (Quicklisp).

A low level dialect of Scheme with manual memory management and Hindley-Milner type inference.

I feel I rely too much on other people's tools, in particular GNU Emacs. I think I'm gonna try to write my own text editor to combat this, we'll see how it goes.
Would love to get some good resources on the subject if anyone has any.

Are Forth programmers divided on how to write an expression like "1 2 3 + *" or "2 3 + 1 *", or is one considered more idiomatic than the other?

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
