  • autotools help on IRC

    It has come to my attention that there is a lack of autotools (autoconf, automake, autoheader, libtool, etc) help on IRC. If anybody is looking, they might check out #mono on; there are quite a few folks there who are familiar with the suite, and if I can ever figure out how to get […]

  • An update

    I don’t really have anything really exciting to report, so y’all get to listen to me blather. And after all, that’s what blogs are for anyway, right? Zelda is turning 11 months old this month. This is still my favorite picture: I have been dishonorably discharged from Amazon. It seems that I am incompetent. It […]

We exchanged email, and he invited me to this year’s Lang.NET symposium. I plan to look for volunteers to contribute to a Perl 6 implementation targeted to the CLI. […]

  • Wisdom from IRC

    08:41 < cj> dmoonfire: I did a bunch of line breaking and whitespace reduction tricks to keep all columns below 80 chars. Maybe I should use more terse, context-specific variable names… 08:42 < dmoonfire> I like verbose names, even with 80col, no idea why. 08:42 < cj> 08:42 <@jonp> name length should be proportional […]
