<DusXMT>I'm thinking of trying dmd outside of guix, so I'm trying to collect information about it
<mark_weaver>civodul: btw, I've been unable to get resolution of *.local names working on my system. I recently switched my config to use %desktop-services and (name-service-switch %mdns-host-lookup-nss), but it still fails
<mark_weaver>it's not important to me, so no rush, but just letting you know that there's a problem
<mark_weaver>civodul: in the example OS desktop configurations, which include wicd, I think "netdev" should be added to the user's supplementary groups. last I checked, that was needed to allow the user to configure wicd
<mark_weaver>for a couple of years I spent most of my time in the GNU project office at the MIT AI lab, adjacent to Gerry Sussman's office and two doors down from RMS and Hal, so yes, I saw them every day.
<mark_weaver>but I never asked them to autograph my copies of SICP
<mark_weaver>yeah, it's just not something that I tend to do, in general. not that there's anything wrong with it :)
<zacts>and how far through the SICM curriculum did you get?
<mark_weaver>I confess that I was too busy with other things at the time to do the exercises, which meant that my understanding of the class became increasingly superficial as the class proceeded, and eventually I just stopped going. too bad, because it was a very interesting class. maybe some day I'll have enough free time to finish it.
