The LMN-3 is an accessible, open source DAW-in-a-box. Pretty amazing fully open source project, built with a Raspberry_Pi . Check out this video showing it in action. youtube.com/watch?v=h5UmPTttN1

just noticed that even after pull and even guix system reconfigure (and reboot), is stuck on 27.2 even as 28.1 is available. Time for an investigation and learning something about guix system

my and now exploration continues. I put together a blog using , a static site generator written in guile. dabbled in guile to define my website. messing up with css too. There's room for improvement, but it's usable and I even wrote articles for it. Only this way I could consider this project finished, stable (smaller changes from here). You can check the results of my dabbling at crodges.srht.site

@acousticmirror @hugoestr @IngaLovinde Lisp machines existed, were sold commercially.

In order to slowly improve my knowledge, I'll learn . First stop is to fool around little with a static generator, the great . Rome was not built in one day; I'll pace myself for the long term, just like when I started with (how many years ago!)

Heck yeah! Guix is one of the best communities I've participated in FOSS, some of the coolest technology, and has been an entry point for me learning all sorts of things about programming!

Science fiction book 

I finally corrected a character flaw of mine. Just finished reading Dune. What can I say? Already put a hold in the second book "Dune Messiah"! What a magnificent read. A true classic, I'm still in awe (and reading the appendix :)) with Herbert's imagination

I'm wondering how much autotools I need to pick up in order to learn . if any fellow er reads this, do chime in :)

For a start on my brand spanking new bare metal , some tinkering with guix home and guix shell
