Many people who followed the story of #Keyboardio, their backer updates, have been pushing them to consider writing a book about their experience. Reading their newest backer update, that feeling intensified tenfold. There's drama, mystery, anticipation, thrill, crime, and in the end, Good triumphs. It's starting to feel like it needs a movie too, not just a book.

I just learned about extended DCGs in Prolog and they are very cool. I even mostly avoided comparing then to monads 😬 occasionallycogent.com/prolog_

@ambrevar Hey, I just wanted to let you know I just moved my blog from Jekyll + markdown to Org, based on your "A Blog in Pure Org" post.
Thanks a lot for writing that & publishing your setup, it was extremely helpful!

Made a Trans Pride flag in solidarity for Trans Day of Remembrance effect for Kaleidoscope, if anyone would like such a thing gitlab.com/snippets/1781330

@obra Aw; looking forward to it though! I guess I have a keyboard case & runic caps coming soon enough to slake my hunger for now :p

@obra @algernon :o any timeline on when we will get to know more about what that is?

@algernon I just saw that from the last link you posted πŸ˜† It looks neat, but it seems like it'd be kind of awkward in practice to me...moving your hand unsupported in 3d space seems like it'd be bad for a lot of precise movement...I guess I'd have to use one to say though.

@algernon Huh, interesting...I like that it isn't a cryptocurrency & they seem to acknowledge a lot of the problems those things have. It was kind of challenging to figure out what it actually is, but does seem neat

I went back to a two-year-old Rust project & tried to get it building again with the latest stable Rust & updated libraries. It was surprisingly straightforward for the most part -- I could just check the updated project docs & let the compiler errors show what needed to change -- but oof did the changes to how the hyper HTTP client work take an annoying amount of time to fix :/

@noelle @Gargron iOS embeds it as well & uses it as the backend for CoreData...I wonder what Apple will think about this "CoC" notionally applying to them?

@wxcafe Have you tried the "octopus feet" stands too? I find the reverse tenting (so the outside top corners are the lowest points) to be a game-changer

I know there's a lot of demand for reviews of books that came out 180 years ago, so I wrote a bit about my thoughts after reading *Democracy in America* occasionallycogent.com/2018/10

There should be a Highland Games anime...it's so ripe for all the classic sports anime tropes: You have all the different events that can have specialists, there's all the different techniques people can use...I would watch it!

@wink @algernon It's a client's webapp - simple enough Clojure + Clojurescript + postgres setup; migrated from Heroku several years ago (which is why we used Dokku at the time, very similar deploy process).
I think my problems with it were 1) I don't like Docker (find it over-complicated for what we need) and 2) written in bash (which just seems like a bad idea) & hence gets confused very easily (e.g. app env vars get mangled by bash quoting rules).

@algernon I have one server that's using Dokku and I hate it so, so much. It's incredibly fragile and just super-frustrating to deal with. I would recommend against.

You have a question for the #Krita developers?

@drdrang In the `find` pipeline, doesn't the "*.epub" bit need to be quoted to pass the literal glob to find?
