Lately, I've been working on implementing a scripting language for GRUB, as well as a Guilified version of Bash (which I call Gush). My philosophy of software development has matured somewhat, and I'm trying to factor out common pieces that would be useful for other applications. That's what Figure is.

So far, it's got a really tiny footprint, a typed in-memory name system, cooperative threading, a garbage collector, and a command shell.

Remaining work includes the data translator (used by the garbage collector), and the language syntax (not a programming language, just a wrapper for other programming languages).

I have truly evil plans for this software. I'll announce it all over the place when I get it nicely packaged up for you.

Goodness, gracious... reviewing all those names and certifying people sure takes a long time.

I made a silly mistake and started a new GRUB page. Hopefully, somehow it will get deleted, and I will claim my rightful spot on the real GNU GRUB page.

Other than that, I'm quite taken with the idea of a nice central free software entry point that I can exploit for my own nefarious purposes. Heheh. Other people's diaries will probably be the downfall of all free software productivity, leaving me as the premier hacker.

Or something.
