Hi folks! Much appreciation for last week's submissions!

I've been looking at Spritely Goblins(, which is an object system following the actor model. I want to try to use it to hack something up(in GUILE) that can monitor different machines in a cluster(assuming an agent is present in each node) What's interesting, is some of the historical context from which it borrows some of it's

Hi folks! This one took a while to post; but nevertheless, here we are!

Last week, Perserverance(a.k.a Percy) landed on Mars; which saw Linux on Mars! One small win(?) for Linux(?) \o/ \o/

Hi folks! Much thanks for last weeks submissions!

Guix on WSL2

(updated versions of this document, plus more, live here)

This will show you how to get Guix running on WSL2.
