Alright, alright, an update. Not that this will make people complaining that this previously good "lisp rss feed" has dried up, because...

... I am currently finding out what real people do in real jobs. In one of these amusing setups where I get responsibility but no tangible benefits (i.e. scads of $$$) I am working in Derivative Research for a French subsidiary of a major British(ish) Bank. It's kind of interesting; I've learnt a lot about approximating integrals. Living in France has its compensations, too.

While we're at it, I have to revise for my viva. Seriously. And the schedule isn't ideal; I finish my stage on Friday 12th of December; my viva is tentatively scheduled for Saturday 13th of December in a different country. Lucky Eurostar is now really fast.

All this means that lisp work requiring more than superficial thought is going to proceed slowly for at least the next few weeks. Simple things that I'm doing: a better INHIBIT-WARNINGS, better bignum printing, and applying other peoples' patches.
