qzhuyan responds to me tweeting Emacs on PocketCHIP. Emacs on pocketchip! Nice man! Then one can have portable org mode! https://t.co/ohzeegFQtD — qzhuyan (@qzhuyan) August 11, 2016 Which is, er, very true. And wonderful. But this haunts me continuously, as I explore the Mind Traffic Geometry of tools that support me tracking tasks and outlining […]
You all probably knew where this was going, right? Of course, it’s been my priority to run the new MTC on the PocketCHIP. And it runs fine, without any special conversion; just needed to figure out how to install a library it depended on without going through drracket. Now I’m off for my celebratory bike […]
Got my PocketCHIP yesterday. And here it is running Emacs, with a Racket REPL via Geiser. I have to say, this has been the dream for a long time … a cheap, portable device that runs Linux, has Emacs, git, rsync etc. And I can actually write and run Lisp on it. It has a […]
Fixed a minor, but annoying, bug in MTC Racket today. There’s an option, when you have a URL in an item, to get MTC to pull it and show the “title” of the page that the URL is pointing out. It’s a quick reminder of what the page is about without opening up the browser […]
Today I killed the old Mind Traffic Control on Google App Engine. And replaced it with a new, fairly basic, site. (Though one that’s quite pretty, in a Packt Publishing kind of way.) This is the beginning of a whole new MTC ecosystem. 1) I’m no longer interested in hosting your todos on Google App […]
I’m using Racket more than Clojure these days. And I’m wondering, is this really about A Good IDE? Because I still like Clojure better as a language. And I like the standard library a lot better. And love ParEdit in Emacs. It’s just that the all-in-one-ness of DrRacket is so darned convenient.
A burst of development energy in a number of directions recently. And things are starting to self-organize towards the new ecosystem. Today’s exciting news : OWL makes a very nice desktop app, thanks to Electron. Here’s the github repo. I’ll be doing more testing, compiling, packaging this shortly. So that even non-geeks can play with […]
Long live Mind Traffic Control! No New Year’s Resolutions or even questions this year. But as an honorary Brazilian, my new year doesn’t really start until after carnival, so now would be the time for it. However here’s a quick update. The answer to the old MTC question is now resolved for me. It’s time […]
I’ve been using Telegram with a bunch from the local hackspace. And we’ve been playing with Telegram bots. It’s an interesting genre. So here’s my first attempt : OhmBot, a bot that knows Ohm’s Law and can do calculations from it.
Some of my websites seem to be under attack at the moment. Or rather, WordPress hosting is infected by some kind of PHP virus. So, I’m in the process of containing and fixing the issues. First I’m using the extremely useful HTTrack to make flat copies and swap the live-sites for these. In fact, I’m […]
