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.

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.

Hello ,
Thanks to upptime.js.org/ now functional.cafe has its own status page at status.functional.cafe where you can see if the main site has any problem and keep updated with the resolutions.

I woke up early, got bored, hyperfocused and wrote a graphical utility for calculating bidding values of hands for in one sitting. Only a bit over 500 lines of . Give it a try here: github.com/erkin/skat-bidder

Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️ :pixelfed:

I'm slowly migrate myself to p.functional.cafe, the new Pleroma instance of , just to understand how hard it is to self-migrate.

A self-migration means the old statuses from Mastodon will be lost.
