Unix/Lisp guy. I try to work on sbcl, CMUCL for Linux and its debian packages, clocc and Common Lisp stuff in general...

Syndication: RSS 2.0

I managed to release a new version of common lisp controller. New in this version are an off-line mode of operations. If the clc-send-command cannot reach the server or you selected to only do daily builds in the debconf interface then the client will just leave a message for the cronjob in /var/spool/common-lisp-controller. A nightly cronjob will then with care sort through the files in that directory and try to execute the jobs. Writing a shellscript that will look at potentially evil data as root is not my idea of a fun time...

In other news: B5 season 3 is just great.

A really good egg/soya/milk free cake: carrot cake. It doesn't even taste off carrots

After experimenting a bit with a different diary format the lack of RSS and the utter mangling of my entries convinced me to keep using advogato...

21 megabytes of email! I will use liberally the C-d key in mutt I fear.

In other news we went to a hilarious "Welcome to Edegem" presentation. That was all nice and uplifting, until they they started talking about the financial problems and even further the traffic problems that all the big works round Antwerp will cause.

In other news my wireless network card seems to hang while handling too much traffic, or maybe because my portable is out of range of the server, or maybe it is interference, or ? I need some time to fix this. Time I don't have

All debian acounts are still locked, and the anon-ftp uploads I tried failed. So no new cmucl packages for now. The worst is that I cannot communicate with users. This whole mess is getting irritating to say the least.

In related news: someone should start packaing slime a emacs-lisp interface that promises to be much better then ilisp ever was. Still I wonder if they shouldn't have taken up eli from franz.

Work. Well the usual stuff. Upgrades, new projects, technical problems.

At the moment I'm trying the new blog of my provider. See here

One windows reinstall, falling laptop and overfull mailbox makes a 18e release for debian late ;-(
