Bring a delightful #Scheme dish to the #GNU #Guile potluck in celebration of Guile 2.0’s 10th anniversary!
Happy hacking! :-)
Learning that people suffering from the storm and blackout in Texas were using the guide in our book Recipes for Disaster to build a rocketstove with which to heat food and water, we've put the directions online here in their entirety:
Last night I start trying to write a PEG parser in #guile to ingest PKGBUILD files from Arch Linux. Today it occurs to me that I should try `(open-pipe ". PKGBUILD; printf '%s\n' $pkgver" OPEN_READ)`. Tada! No more peg necessary, which is nice.
The annual #Guix-HPC report is out!
Guix has made it into Debian Unstable! This means Debian users can use Guix as a "userspace" package manager now! https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/guix
This is really wonderful! Debian and Guix both care deeply about reproducibility.
This could be a big win for user freedom on both (cotd ...)
Just managed to successfully build a #guix package for Idris2-boot. Now on to the next 3 packages in the bootstrap path to firstname.lastname@example.org
We closed the gap between Stage0 and #GNU Mes: the Full Source Bootstrap is near!
The package graph is now rooted in hex0, a #357-byte binary & ASCII-equivalent https://github.com/oriansj/bootstrap-seeds/blob/master/POSIX/x86/hex0_x86.hex0
Make your distro #bootstrappable!
Another gift item. #imaeddis "growth ruler" for a young person and their parents to track growth over the years.
I did a simple boiled linseed oil finish so that the surface remains markable. Tick marks were burned in, and the top portion separates to act as a square for accurate measurements.
Indigenous Australians vs mining companies.
Just one company, Rio Tinto, currently has permission to destroy 1,700 Aboriginal heritage sites. That's just one company.
Imagine in a UK company had permission to destroy 1,700 English Heritage and National Trust sites. Imagine the outcry against this.
A parliamentary report talks about this, yet it's just a report, and legally, Rio Tinto can just go ahead.

Parliament committee says miner must negotiate a compensation deal with traditional owners and ‘ensure a full reconstruction’ of the caves
