Tabling at The Last HOPE was a blast, kind of unexpectedly. I didn't go to any of the talks (although I got to see Jello Biafra's lengthy, meandering keynote on the big projector), but the FSF raised, well, I don't know if it's appropriate to discuss... but it was a lot. And we got a surprising number of requests for ladies' t-shirts.

Shout-outs are due to Matt, Ringo, and Thomas. ...And, grudgingly to Club-Mate. Club-Mate: One Gets Used To It.


After almost a year, SCSS 0.3.1 is out. This release features a full-scale code cleanup / reorganization, as well as major changes that improve portability and performance -- the lexer was rewritten by hand, and the pseudo-element handling no longer requires you to manager the style cache yourself. Huge!

With encouragement from Ludovic, I spent nearly a month (of evenings and weekends) trying to write a more efficient pure-Scheme implementation of SRFI-89, and... failed. In the process, though, I learned a fair amount about Guile's handling of macros and lexical environments. I'm confident Guile will wind up with an SRFI-89 implementation in the near future; it'll just look pretty familiar.
