I don't usually take pictures of the things I cook because presentation is a definite culinary weak point for me, but I felt it was warranted for tonight's meal. Butterflied chicken stuffed with Brie, cranberries, and sauteed onions + garlic

Would anyone be interested in helping port DUCK to Python 3? It's a free toolchain for developing native Android applications sans Java. Might be up your alley if you're into compilers or playing with bytecode

Perhaps I can read Eelco Dolstra's thesis in that time, too

Pierre Neidhardt's recent article on is tempting me to format my disks and install it, but I think I should resist the urge. Gentoo has yet to last a full year on either of my machines and I'd like my laptop to be in a working state when I return to University next week. Maybe I can play with it in a virtual machine and transfer the setup to a native installation with 'guix system disk-image' once spring break rolls around.


Gives me ample time to get my hands on some HF equipment, I guess

Passed the element 3 exam tonight, but with the government being shut down and all that I'm anticipating that it'll be a while before the license upgrade actually goes through

Is an antenna upgrade for the UV-5R worth the cost?

PSA: GZDoom, in many respects the leading Doom source port, has a very powerful scripting language called ZScript. It's what 100% of Mr. Friendly was written in. Marrub has documented Zscript extensively and it should be current as of the GZDoom version released just today: github.com/marrub--/zscript-do

Another helpful emacs/elisp trick you might not know of:

Regular expressions are pretty helpful -- but they can be difficult to type and maintain in Elisp, since it requires a lot of escaping.

There's a simple and elegant solution, that's typical to a lisp-mindset: the "rx" macro -- here's an example:

(rx (or ".png" ".jpg" ".jpeg") eos)

turns into


Detains can be found under `C-h f rx RET`

Hm, maybe I could get my general class license this break...

If not, I guess I could just run EchoLink through Wine

Can I validate my callsign through SvxLink? I've never used EchoLink before, but the 2-meter repeater of the club I'm considering joining is a node and it'd be pretty cool if I could tune in even when I'm off at uni

Fabien Sanglard's most recent book was waiting under the tree for me this morning, I'm really looking forward to sinking my teeth into that this break

So I guess I'll be giving StumpWM a shot today to evaluate it as something to fall back to in the case that I run into any stability issues with EXWM, but seeing Quake running in Emacs was pretty satisfying
