What day is it? What year?

Tuesday, 2 June 2009

For the past few days Edinburgh has been experiencing a mini-heatwave. This is mostly pleasant, but the downside is that I've become sunburnt and bitten by many insects.

Happily I've discovered that the mint plants I've got growing beneath my bedroom window are antipruritic ("anti-itch") which solves both problems.

Aside from the heat I've had a busy weekend wiring up some Lisp code to serve as an XML-RPC server, so that I can carry out some functions remotely.

I'm almost tempted to package the s-xml-rpc library if only locally, but I'm not confident I know what I'm doing. I mostly unpacked the source beneath /usr/share/common-lisp/source/s-xml-rpc and fiddled until things started working by magic.

In addition to getting more hooked upon Lisp I've spent a while tidying up obsolete pages on my websites, unifying services, and giving a minor overhaul to the appearance of things.

Imake art, until someone dies

Sunday, 15 February 2009

This weekend I have mostly been investigating Common Lisp.

If you're new to the environment then you may get started via a simple:

apt-get install clisp

Once you've done that the following resources will help you decide whether you're wasting your time or not:

It has been a long time since I've had so much fun - even though the first thing I did was experiment with implementing a spam filter - although in my defense I was only classifying based upon the links contained in the mails. So for example:

  • http://gmail.com/ - Good.
  • http://www.facebook.com/ - Good. (ha!)
  • http://tallbear.com - Spam
  • http://pamperflow.com - Spam
