With the caveat that I fully know the #PineTime firmware and ecosystem is nowhere near mature, after a week using one, I have three minor disappointments:
* Notifications don't work at all, paired with #Siglo on a #Mobian #Pinephone
*The music control app doesn't work either
* More importantly for me, the heart rate monitor is unreliable. It goes from zero to more than 200 (!) and any value in between, no matter the level of activity (or lack thereof) I'm doing.
Hoping for future improvements.
Finally finished the Applicatives chapter in the #Haskell Book, which I actually found quite difficult. Now, onto Monads! ☠️
It's sad that adding "λ" to Haskell as a special character was decided against https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/-/issues/1102
400 pages into the Haskell Book and I can't put it down (digitally). Excited to use it. Might port my ZUI Wayland compositor to #haskell instead of using C.
Obviously one of the first things I change in my #Haskell setup is putting a lambda as my GHCi prompt because I'm a basic bitch
Disappointed that cloud #haskell never really panned out. Last update 3 years ago.
Though, to be honest, I realize that actual distributed haskell is a niche even within distributed haskell, most can do without.
I've been reading the book 'Haskell Progamming from First Principles', and as a first introduction to #Haskell I can highly recommend it. Fantastic book, very easy to read, very easy to understand.
A fantastic article on Lisp, really helped me begin to understand the benefits of its approach to programming: https://www.defmacro.org/ramblings/lisp.html
