between the fuckups with building on Alpine, the fact that "solidity-repl" can't find useable entropy sources on macOS, and that the web compiler is kinda sorta not always working, it's amazing that shit gets done *at all*. </rant>

it's amazing to me how much fucking time I've spent trying to get node & Solidity to play nice on a VM that I can give to a client. I still haven't come up with a decent setup for a custom Ethereum blockchain, though that seems easier with docker (thank Christ)

@natecull I had a finding with a client about 2 months ago that I described an abuse of functionality for stalking via follows and auto-joining folks to groups. They were pretty shocked I would mention that as a security finding, but then agreed when I explained trolling and the like via Group subscription

@iximeow lmfao, you MONSTER. But yeah, before when we were just dating I realized it was slowly fading, and now with work and speaking gigs and clients... woof.

@djsundog @wxcafe I am indeed a tattooed and gentlemanly Hungarian loser. If not me, I can probably have family look at something. What we got?

@djsundog at least we got texts and real life friends, and lovers, oh the sweet loves, to get away from all this techne

Man, I hate how Twitter has become self censoring; don't get too edgy cuz of NAZIs, don't get too lovey cuz of creepers and work, don't get too loud cuz of hordes of followers. So I just drift back into the blue noise of the bird and

@djsundog I just got back from Barcelona… after having been in Utah. 3 weeks of time fuckery

@cemerick Well, so ISLisp is way closer to Scheme (via EULisp) than CL, but it has many of the "I need big things for big ideas" that CL has. Honestly, it's been one of my life goals to make an ISLisp compiler, since I think it would actually give me all of what I normally need from Typed systems + all of what I want from Lisp systems. And I'm mainly a scheme head too, witness Digamma.

@rplevy man, I need more of you in my timeline. Seeing the mastodon posts makes me remember how much I've enjoyed the few times I've DM'd you on birbsite.

Nick Land's dismissive assertion that left accelerationism is subsumed or swallowed up by his analysis of the inevitable ascent of capitalism can only appear plausible in a world in which 30 years after Varela's "Steps to a Cybernetics of Autonomy" not much has improved in terms of technological focus, and meanwhile the science has come around to resoundingly confirm the pragmatic or enactive paradigm.

@cemerick disregard Hyperspec, Acquire ISLisp Spec:

ISLisp is smaller, and nicer in so many ways than CL was/is.

@djsundog @natecull Oh gosh, did I just get compared to Oleg? Man, I shouldn't even be correcting Oleg's spelling mistakes (of which there are none, because his papers type checked before he sent them off).

I think for my Curry On talk, I'm going to do a report out of all my little findings of Mastodon, and how I use Functional Programming & Types to model that

@djsundog ja, that's the one I've been keepin my eye on... I'll probably give it a whirl today. Also setting up my burner phone for abroad travel, sooooo
