OH on Discord: "Forth is lisp for engineers ... Lisp is forth for mathematicians"

gemini:// is "reader mode mandatory" and it's glorious.

I found a multi-part YouTube series about building ones own Forth. Relatively new. Pretty good so far! youtube.com/watch?v=gPk-e9vGSW

I should use mastodon more. I think my problem is I don't know where to find content. What are some good feeds to follow if I like or ?


1. Don't be a downer in replies for no good reason.

2. No unsolicited advice.

3. If someone says something nice to you, boost a post of theirs that you like.

4. If someone is rude/unhelpful/a downer in your replies, block-unblock them to get them off your follower list (or just block them if they don't follow you).

5. Use hashtags sometimes, and when you do, click on them and boost the good stuff to federate it about.

Functional programming has some useful concepts, but let's stop pretending it has magical superpowers that will save the world. I still prefer multi-paradigm over purely functional.

Goofing around with E-FOrth on the ESP32. Pretty neat- ships with a tiny HTTP terminal.

Still tinkering on + . . . Looks like it will require more creativity than I first imagined. Hitting a lack of DRAM?? πŸ€”
