Happy Thursday

We continue to shelter-in-place in San Francisco as we watch the pandemic unfold. It’s been weeks (2, maybe 3?) since we started to live the social distancing life.

I’ve been hanging out in the Haskell chat rooms. There isn’t much activity there but people occasionally drop in and ask interesting questions. One person wanted to know if they could have a local copy of the Hackage server so they could work without internet access. It sounds like it’s possible but I haven’t heard back on the results yet:

Lumaturo has been running for a few days now and I’m still excited about going through my webpages’ reports. Something about getting a perfect score and making all the metrics turn from “red” to “green” is oddly addictive. At the very least, Google Lighthouse made me aware of using HTTP/2 on my servers.

I’m still working on adding gift and question metadata to Suprizi. Once the gift suggestions and questions make a bit more sense I’ll start looking into using machine learning to enhance the experience.

Organizing and adding to the Tricky Wiki continues.

In family news, Dad had a birthday recently and my cousin had a baby! I’ll have to update the family wiki 🙂

Peace and Prosperity (No. 0265 / 1000)

Keep moving, stay sane 🙂


The computer said to drop this here.

I wrote my first “real” Haskell program It took some trial-and-error but I finally figured out that it was easier to use an older stack snapshot ( that included the package I needed.

That program simply picks a random location to drop an online Peercoin airdrop wallet. “Blog” was the winner, so here it is: airdrop wallet 0208.

Have fun, stay safe.
