@alcinnz Hello, it's been a while since I signed on to fosstodon and I just wanted to reach out to you. How are things?
I'm still here! Not dead. I've actually been working on various #haskell projects in secret and taking some time to grow some of my other pursuits/hobbies.
The #gopherhole builder I made is actually pretty advanced and I should document all its wonderful features and show it off... maybe I'll start a wiki soon.
Just look at what you can do with the frontmatter, for instance.

This has inspired me to probably take a look at #Isabelle for formal verification. I have a project I might use it for!
I'm playing with the idea of trying to get together a group of Haskell people to be #haskell advocates. The idea would be to select the most practical Haskell libraries, especially for webdev, enhance their documentation, maybe make some PRs of other sorts for them, highlight tutorials related to them, make our own tutorials for those libraries, things of that nature. I think Haskell just needs to be easier to get people's foot in the door with practical projects.
Oh my god I love #typora! I just found out about it today. I'm going to try using it for maintaining my phlog posts and server notes.
Going to redo my server install. Starting with backing everything up and documenting how I'm doing the backup. Using #zim to plan the installation, to be more careful and minimal and easy when it comes to setting things up this time. I may write a phlog post about it!
"Generics" and generic deriving in #haskell is some magic I have to learn about soon. `DeriveGeneric` just made implementing ToJSON and FromJSON very easy.
I really needed to hear this #haskell talk.
It's about deciding how fancy and novel to let your Haskell code with relation to maintenance. Haskell has a lot of novel tools at its disposal. Each time you choose to use a novel tool you increase the learning curve not only for beginners, but also for your future self. Sometimes that trade odd is worth it.
I also learned about some cool libraries.
