I love modal editing and I tried hard, but there's no way I can use evil-mode on Emacs... I feel dirty to use a mix of keybinding, vim/emacs.

Of course, I can use Spacemacs/Doom Emacs, but then again I lose the possibility of a tailor-made configuration...

Has anyone a good custom configuration of + evil-mode + smartparens/paredit to share?

Thanks

Looking for an artist to design a logo

For some time I have been working on programming language, KAP, which is a derivative of APL. The implementation is open source, as all languages should be.

The project itself does not have a logo, and all programming languages should have a logo.

Now, I have exactly zero artistic skills, and I know there are artists here that could help me out.

I will of course pay for the effort, since I do not expect anyone to create a logo for a project they do not use for free. If you have an idea, then let me know about it and how much you want for the effort and I'm sure we can come to an agreement.

Just look at the project page and you'll see just how empty it seems without a logo: github.com/lokedhs/array

COVID statistics 

If you hear anyone say "the vaccine doesn't work, you can still get COVID", then show them this graph.

You might still get COVID, but you are much more likely to not have any serious effects.

The graph was snipped from the latest Singapore COVID situation update: moh.gov.sg/news-highlights/det

It took a couple of days, but I finally rewrote my entire configuration from scratch...
Like any good project, sometimes you have to throw all away and start anew.

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.

Full abstract on the symposium's website: european-lisp-symposium.org/20

@lisp @scheme
@clojure
@commonlisp

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.
