Why, yes. This is, indeed, OWL running on the PocketCHIP. Here’s the story. I spent 12 days recently, travelling in the south of Brazil and Uruguay border. And I decided, as an experiment, to see if I could live without my laptop. I wasn’t meant to be working, but I always like to keep some […]
Been working quite a lot on Project ThoughtStorms, the new Python / Bottle based wiki engine behind ThoughtStorms in the last few days. I can’t believe that I’ve spent 15 years building a wiki without creating my own software. That error is going to be rectified from now on. Sure, most of what I’m doing […]
A quick update (for me, as much as anyone else) of where I’m at and what I’m currently thinking about … March 2017: ClojureScript and Reagent I want to get up to speed on this as my standard way of writing browser based software. React seems to have conquered the world as browser based, reactive […]
I wrote a question on the OpenCV forum and got an amazingly comprehensive and useful answer from pklab. It’s extraordinary how he (or she) has immersed themselves into the project of solving my problem. I’m humbled.
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.
