Some big news to round off the trifecta of our IRC gateways: our matrix bridge is now available! You can connect to foo:libera.chat where #foo is the channel.

A big thanks to @matrix for their support - we know a lot of our communities view Matrix access as a big deal!

Libera is a week old, and we've come strong out the blocks. Thank you to our 20,000 users for your support, enthusiasm, and patience.

I've written a little about our first week and some of the projects we host here: libera.chat/news/one-week-of-l

My personal #mastodon experience still suffers from crossposts from #twitter, with user names that don't make sense in the #fediverse.

I can unfollow crossposter's accounts, but I don't want to unfollow everyone who boosts a twitter crosspost.

Please, #fediverse, let's boost the fediverse, not twitter. If we want to share a good tweet, let's treat it like any other URL from the web.

Ok, users, the upgrade to mastodon-glitch v3.4.0 is completed, enjoy!

Hello users!

Tonight (7pm GMT circa) I'm going to upgrade functional.cafe to the latest Mastodon release, so some downtime may be possible.

You can find the release notes here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Thanks.

The ELS2021 programme is out! I am VERY excited about

⭐​ Nada Amin's keynote
"Staged Relational Interpreters: Running Backwards, Faster" ⭐​​

including logic programming, miniKanren, compilers from interpreters, and only good stuff!
🤩​

Excerpt from the abstract:

> Bringing multi-stage programming to relational programming, we derive a relational compiler from the relational interpreter.

🚀​

@lisp @scheme
@clojure

Every now and then I bust out a Lisp interpreter and poke at it for a few hours, and think about how much less software would suck if it had gotten popular instead of C. Lisp may be the most beautiful written language of any kind, and as an industry we’re stuck in a loop constantly trying to reinvent it, badly.

Hey, users! Looks like the server migration has been successful!

I still have to tune some little details, pgbouncer for example, so there can be other minor hiccup in the service.

As always, you can contact me if you notice anything weird.

Thanks.

Hello fellow users.

In case you've missed the administration announcement, I need to migrate the actual instance to another server.

It will take part of the weekend (6-7/2) and the instance will not be available.

Thanks for your patience.

Just finished a full article today (something I wanted to write since I first created the blog)!

I finally feel like I've given rmail enough attention.
