Roommate spent today learning LaTeX. He said he was inspired after seeing how clean my problem set solutions were.

Next semester I'll be taking a course in computer graphics. I'm really excited about that.

This class just doesn't let up. I've got an exam for it on Thursday, too.

Awesome, I wasted my weekend (as well as the two days leading up to it) finishing this problem set.

Lost my `set-macro-character' virginity today. Doing stuff at read time is weird but it's a very, very cool feature.

Are there any good packages (besides AUCTeX) for editing ? latex-mode has been serving me well, but I've been spending a lot of time this semester transcribing my solutions to problem sets, so I figure it might be worth seeing what's out there.

Really digging this DIY textbook look. They contracted out to a local printing company for the textbook this half of the semester.

Can't believe I wrote something in a programming language that isn't Lisp for once

Recently got permission to rewrite part of my lab's genomics software in Rust. I haven't done any rigorous benchmarks yet (I'm saving those for the paper), but what I have so far runs in ~3/5 the time the old C code takes to run.

There's also apparently a Boston Lispers meetup today, but I've got an exam tonight so commuting is out of the question.

What's it called?
