complaining about nix and computers
nix is pretty cool but then at some point you have to write a derivation for some Kinda Bad Hobbyist Software that hard-codes Qt build target paths. and because you have never built Qt software before, you have to read A LOT to figure out that the actual solution is to fork the not-really-maintained software and change a tiny string, which you don’t really wanna do but okay.
i’ve mostly replaced all my vim configuration in kakoune. there’s just one thing i’d very much like to recreate: vim-projectionist.
i’ve decided to make an editor-agnostic commandline interface to interact with projection files. and use it as an opportunity to learn a new language. go seemed like a reasonable thing to learn for modern CLIs, so that’s what i’ve started with.
doing this again. hi. i am a semi-curious but mostly uninteresting person who likes learning a little bit about a lot of stuff. i am relearning how to write and record music. i do software development (ruby, rails) for a living and enjoy it as a hobby, too, when i have the energy. i built about half of the furniture in my house with the help of friends and youtube. ama!
