I have been looking for a Lispy replacement to #Python for a year now. #Racket is batteries-included like Python. You can also create executable binaries.
I'm not looking for efficiency here, since it's just for scripts I run on my desktop.
Though I prefer to use Emacs over DrRacket, I can see how it can bring down the barrier to entry significantly.

I used to see an annoying bug when resuming from suspend, where the cpu frequency would get stuck at a low value. That seems to have been resolved now.
Only 1 minor inconvenience remaining: I often have to restart NetworkManager after resuming.
Any #rustlang devs interested in porting the Mastodon streaming API from Node.js to Rust?
We would likely not be able to abandon the Node.js version completely for portability's sake, but there is no reason not to have a more performant drop-in for those who can install it.
The Node.js version consumes about 1GB of RAM for 21k connections.

Looking for a FLOSS alternative for #Hangouts reignited my interest in #Movim. If only I can convince my friends to use Movim or any other #XMPP client. Anyway here is a short blog post of mine about Movim.
