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:

I really want this GnuBee PC-1 to work. Been wanting to get a home NAS back up. But I can't get the thing going. Documentation severely lacking. Also feeling impatient.

Last night I start trying to write a PEG parser in 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.

Guix has made it into Debian Unstable! This means Debian users can use Guix as a "userspace" package manager now!

This is really wonderful! Debian and Guix both care deeply about reproducibility.

This could be a big win for user freedom on both (cotd ...)

Got a little stuck on the idris2 packaging, so I'm taking a little break and working on a Trigger Rally package. It's been on the Wishlist for a while.

Just managed to successfully build a package for Idris2-boot. Now on to the next 3 packages in the bootstrap path to idris2@0.3.0

three-legged stool from reclaimed construction lumber and maple/willow from the firewood pile.

Congratulate yourself for doing difficult things, even if they might not seem difficult to others.

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

Make your distro #bootstrappable!

Another gift item. "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.

laminated pine couch table as a gift. Shellac finish over a few coats of boiled linseed oil.

I started this project back in March. Part of the trouble was that the choice of joinery is not the greatest for handtool . But things ended up coming together alright in the end.

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

Online pre-school sounds to me like certifiable death.

Luis Felipe is proposing #GNU #Guix 1.2 t-shirts and hoodies!
