> After 10 years we have decided that it is time to make a new release – the first one since 2008, which was McCLIM 0.9.6, St. George's Day. Imbolc is a Gaelic traditional festival marking the beginning of spring held between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.

> As Imbolc marks the beginning of spring we hope this release will be one of many in the upcoming future.

Tip for new Mastodon users:
1. Do a search for a hashtag (try #introductions or #mastoart)
2. Pin it as a column
3. Filter that same hashtag out of your Home column so you don't see its toots twice

I received an invitation for Easter Monday

Today I have been playing around with the Maxima code base. My goal is to eventually build a CLIM-based user interface on top of it, instead of the pure text-based interface that Maxima has.

What really needs to be written is a maths renderer for CLIM. Calling out to LaTeX to do the rendering is not ideal.

Ok the glitch I was having with running Guix images in Qemu is gone

All I had to do was gc'ing

In the next future I'd like to open some bugs related to the Gnome desktop on Guix

The LibrePlanet program is full of extremely interesting stuff

I'd really love to attend
