@sir Though I'd definitely consider myself a nerd interested in music production, I find stuff like this to be too esoteric and, for lack of a better word, unorthodox, to be practical for actual composition.
Not saying it can't be done, but it feels comparable to writing complex software in Brainfuck.
That being said, I do enjoy seeing others make music using stuff like this. It's cool.

@sir What are your plans regarding compile-time code (like zig comptime, rust macros, or the C preprocessor)?
Would you rather users resort to external tools for code generation like for Go?

@orbjet I'm on a Vortex Race 3 right now. Have been between various 60% keyboards before, but this hits the spot for comfort (as in, all keys are there) and space.

I'll probably look into getting an ergodox or ergodash in the future.

@bumbervevo I always use it in airplane mode. Wifi isnt really needed for anything.

@sir Personally, no. For tech subjects I prefer digital copies where I can search and navigate quickly.

@sir Very helpful, thanks. I like the idea with ddevlang as well. I've studied Japanese (along with history, civics, etc.) a few months full time at uni but didn't get very far, so might be time to pick it up again.
As you say, time is the problem, and it's too easy to drop the darn Anki habit...

@sir Hey! Getting 500s when trying to purchase "The Wayland Protocol" draft.

@sir I very much enjoy reading your status updates and don't see how they would become annoying. Keep at it!
