I haven't blogged in a while. Let's fix that.
When working in Racket I find myself reaching for associative lists. I know they're technically less effective than hash tables, but they're just so much fun. Alists combine key-value pairs with the ability to easily use them recursively. Whether the resulting code is elegant or horrible is left to the reader.
Just encountered the most annoying bug I've ever faced. My keyboard won't type `.
I've spent 3 hours poring over QMK docs, trying different layouts and binding to different keys. I don't even use `, but the principle of having a keyboard that can't type the backquote char annoys me.
Strangely enough mashing any key bound to kc_grave makes it output a tab, so I'm guessing this is some freak edge case.
Slightly late blog post for #100DaysToOffload where I wrap all the org-mode articles up with a practical example. I'm all org-ed out.
New article for #100DaysToOffload elaborating on using tables in org-mode, specifically coordinates and formulae.
Day 7 of #100DaysToOffload and it's about making checklists in Org-mode. Incredibly useful for keeping track of projects.
I also mention links, because being able to embed Elisp code to run with the click of a mouse is convenient.
Another day, another article for #100DaysToOffload. For the next few days I'll write about one of my favourite tools, Emacs Org-mode. https://write.as/kbilal1993/org-mode-an-introduction
Does anyone know of any vector graphics editor that uses something like FreeCAD's constraint system? As in, you draw a rough sketch of what you want and set rules like "These lines must always be parallel", or "The angle between these lines must always be 40 degrees", and everything snaps into place to satisfy the rules.
Maybe tomorrow I can figure out when I should use "effect" instead of "affect"
Day 4 of #100DaysToOffload and I attempt to find out whether a bad coding habit of mine has any affect on runtime: write.as/kbilal1993/efficiency-of-chaining-multiple-map-commands
I write abominations in Racket. I tell myself I'm learning Rust, but always get distracted.
I play Monster Hunter, work with entrepreneurs and I once drew a circle in GIMP
