On plant, September 2020

September 27, 2020

While I would like to archive the paper notes I have resulting from the work on infotropique in the past years, and actually implement plant as a tool, let us be realistic. Open Source work takes time. People have jobs, lifes, friends, other hobbies. I will still look into it at some point maybe, but it is more unlikely that I will ever have the time to do this in addition to my involvement in other projects. If I do, it will just be for myself as a specialized audience. Maybe a proof of concept. I am letting this go for now for the lack of more time to invest in Open Source than I already do.

GSoC 2020 - Notes on sh(1)

July 11, 2020

Misc notes on the 3 relevant files for adding posix_spawn usage to sh, from https://github.com/teknokatze/gsoc2020/blob/default/sh.txt and summary from today's IRC meeting with my mentors. This week and last week I've read through sh's code, with no clue how to start replacing the logic.

On plant - update 2

May 16, 2020

Continued musings about plant on a saturday evening, still not 100% verified and opinionated as long as I don't double check with my existing notes. It's a bit chaotic, just taking notes.

2018-12-12

December 12, 2018

I am annoyed by the format of this website. I won't find the time to fix this very soon, but I hope to rewrite it in an easier format soon which requires less lines of codes to generate the pages. Until then, the pages are more or less frozen. For one, because I don't have the time and patience to update them for myself, and furthermore because I have too much other construction sites. So, I'm still alive, infotropique OS/core and plant got some serious reconsideration over the last months (tracking Guix won't work out for a long list of reasons), working on a new codebase every now and then + writing the principals down which I'd like to implement in this OS.

The server previously running infotropique.org, n0.is, and everything else crashed this week. I'm currently recovering it, but it will take a while. While I'm at it I'm restructuring it. I won't run searx and GNUsocial anymore. This website you are reading right now (the blog section) will move to a new subdomain, and more.

Expect to see less frequent posts as it gets difficult to summarize or take the time to summarize my work. As I had to aquire a domain again for several reasons, you can now reach this website in addition to https://ng0.infotropique.org at https://n0.is and https://we.make.ritual.n0.is (and some other services got their old subdomains back, like https://c.n0.is, https://s.n0.is etc).

  • I'll start a weekly report and reflection post on work I do. As soon as I find time to do a guessed collection of last week, I'll do the first one. I already reflect about my work, I just don't do it in a conventional and public form.

  • First preparation class in university, math, today. After years of not using much math at all I'm surprised how well that went (still I was busy from 8 - 11 in university and 12 - 22 at home (with some hours of breaks)).

  • I should and wil change the color theme of this log. Remains from old layouts.

in music - GNUnet and its potential for artists

August 05, 2017

krosos started at some time around 2000 or 2002 with myself (ng0) doing live rehearsals with other people. The line-up changed many times, and issues (not related to people but composition and rehearsal) lead to the conclusion that krosos can't exist as a group formation. With the last line-up I produced (not: recorded) one EP ("Journey through Darkness") and one Album ("I"), both never saw the light of day until today and instead krosos went on hiatus.
