Cool news from my Phlog and my Blog:

1. Removed all extra JS from exported posts (org-export) and added syntax highlighting to my SDF page. Next: port the index to Org.

2. New (kind of) post on my phlog: Reflections on a modern Lisp Machine. An old blog post, now in plain text for all its ASCII glory.

3. New blog post in Portuguese, talking about operator associativity in C/C++, to help some friends.

I'm gonna keep posting this until one of you fucking boosts it

Does anybody know how do I configure SMTP for my SDF e-mail? I'm currently able to fetch mail using offlineimap, but I cannot send using SMTP on Emacs.

I tried every tutorial available that there is, and configured my secret with mkvpm, but my authentication just gets refused...

I can't even begin to express how revigorating it is to solve a problem with NVIDIA and Xorg stuff on Linux.

At the same time, fuck NVIDIA for not supporting Fermi cards anymore.

It isn't "serverless" if you all use Amazon's servers.

I've spent so much time on my computer building stuff that I've become way too opinionated to listen to someone saying something I do not agree, e.g. "C is a primitive language". Hope it's not too late to change.

It's like, you kind of feel the urge to raise a finger and start explaining, but you're not sure where to begin, and then you realize the best course of action is to just shut the hell up and let them think whatever they want.

Funny thing is, I was writing a C program at the same time I was listening to that.

Heard a magnificent conversation on college today:

1: "C is such a primitive language!"
2: "Yeah!"
1: "I prefer a more modern language such as Java"

i don't even

why does everything have to be about a left and a right nowadays? let's just enjoy stuff we like to build and fuck the rest

Hmmmm, back home after eating a bunch of sushi. Couldn't ask for more

The amount of books I intend to buy exceeds way too much the amount of those books I can read per year.

One cannot simply hope to read GEB and SICP (w/exercises) while attending to college...

Well, it seems the whole Brazilian election thing infected my Telegram groups as well. I'd better bury my head in the sand until Monday morning.
Mastodon and SDF seem to be my last sane places.

welcome to PHP, where block scope does not exist and everything works "funny"

also, celery is now fruit

Jesus Christ why the heck do people HAVE to use Facebook for work-related stuff? I can't even view videos consistently on it.

Guys, is it better to start with MIPS or just go straight to RISC-V?

I'm reading so many books for a project but I can't help thinking that I have to start making something right now

For some very fortunate and interesting reason, the words "Gödel" and "Zen" keep hitting me in unexpected ways, every time I go deeper into Lisp programming and AI.

Hmmm, I should probably update my Gopherspace pretty soon. Let this be a reminder to myself.
Next post is probably going to be related to Land of Lisp book, which I am finishing (hope to do so this weekend).
