    Project mention: Note Taking in 2021 | | 2021-06-16

    I use nb ( and sync to gitlab. The best part of nb, is that you can bookmark a url, and nb will keep a copy of the page with the bookmarked url. So if the page disappears later, you still have a copy with your notes.

    It's all stored as markdown, so you can go in and edit the page. nb also syncs automatically every time a note is edited.

  • GitHub repo transcrypt

    transparently encrypt files within a git repository (by elasticdog)

    Project mention: How do I become "smarter" | | 2021-03-18

    Start writing all of your work down. I personally put almost every line of code I ever write into github. I have a "misc" project for random one-off things, but I always commit it to a repo. I started doing this in 2013/2014 and its been incredibly valuable to go back and refer to old work (its also fun to see how far you've come). This gets interesting when you start needing to write down information that shouldn't be public (e.g. api keys). You're into crypto, so you can probably see the fun in this. I've use a program called transcrypt to store encrypted files in my git repos. Be careful with transcrypt though, if you make a mistake you can accidentally publish secrets in plain text, and it does open you up to brute force attacks.

  • GitHub repo dotdrop

    Save your dotfiles once, deploy them everywhere

    Project mention: | | 2021-08-24

  • GitHub repo portacle

    A portable common lisp development environment

    Project mention: Some thoughts about raising the profile of Lisp | | 2021-08-31

    Check out Portacle [1], or if you already are rocking Emacs and SBCL and just want the bare minimum dot-emacs to kick around Lisp, check out emacs4cl [2]. There is an older project called "Lisp In A Box", but it hasn't been kept up to date so most beginners start with Portacle these days.
