@iliana I also taught emacs to interpret the Linux unicode-entering things so it'll work on Emacs regardless of the host OS :p https://github.com/jamesnvc/dotfiles/blob/master/emacs.d/user.el#L278
@iliana Yeah, I don't think the host guessing works very well; I just have it disabled and manually set the host OS then have leader key sequences set up to switch OSes when needed.
I tried using Elixir a while ago and liked some things of it, but was fairly annoyed by some other things. I later realized that the things that I liked are the Erlang things and now I'm realizing that the things I like about Erlang are the Prolog things.
Time to move on from being a Lisp weenie to being a Prolog wennie?
After 3.5 months with my Keyboardio Model 01 I remain completely in love with it. Not only do I type faster and more comfortably than I ever did before but using it makes me so happy I write more just to be using it.
I never want to use a non-split, ortho, tented keyboard again, to say nothing of how awesome having easy-to-extend and open-source firmware is.
Just need those Runic keycaps & I’ll be set for life 😁
Spent about four hours in the kitchen today, but now we have lunch and dinner for the next four days! Also, I think I need an ergonomic kitchen knife...
Watching "Blue Planet 2" and, while it is really cool, the overly-dramatic music is actually kind of stressful...why must this nature documentary be shot like a horror movie?
Oof, it's so cold out that my Apple Watch apparently stopped being able to detect my heartbeat while biking home & locked 😬
Also the place I teach is so dry I feel myself desiccating like a piece of jerky every time I'm in here
This weather is messing with me so much...every time I think I'm okay to bike somewhere and that maybe I'll be able to starting throwing practice again, the temperature plummets 10 degrees and it starts to snow.
Hrm, so today I learned that in Clojure the auto-gensyms (like "foo#") in macros are only expanded once, at read time, so a macro that does something like `(def thing# ...)` will be the same name with every invocation, so you would need to do the equivalent of `(def ~(gensym) ...)`. A little bit annoying to figure out!
"Monster of the Week" rules so hard. I ran the first session with my co-founders last night and everyone had a lot of fun. They'd never played a pen-and-paper RPG before but they really got into it.
The system is so much better than something like D&D for collaborative storytelling. Can't wait to run the next adventure!
I know nothing about chess, but I am loving Joey Comeau's oft-shirtless cyberpunk speed chess videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCytr76fNot64sT50tndgy6w
