A Review of Paul Graham's Bel, Chris Granger's Eve, and a Silly VR Rant

Hello Friends,

This elf begging to climb onto the web for Christmas began as a personal email, a review of Paul Graham's little Lisp Bel. He sprouted arms, legs, and in gingerstyle ran away. Arms for symbols, legs for conses: these primitives are the mark a Lisp — even more so than the parenthesis. What do we get when we remove these foundation stones: naming and pairing?

How to share a folder with a docker container on OSX

Mounting shared folders between OSX and the docker container is tricky due to the intermediate boot2docker VM. You can't use the usual docker -v option as the docker server knows nothing about the OSX filesystem - it can only mount folders from the boot2docker filesystem. Fortunately, you can work around this using SSHFS.
