<davexunit>hmmm, interesting design decision to be made: writing scripts using delimited continuations, or monadic combinators
<davexunit>scripts for objects in a video game, that is.
<davexunit>move forward, wait a bit, cast spell, repeat. that kind of stuff.
<rjmacready>hmm i know some of those words
***ft_ is now known as ft
<amz3>héllo :)
<amz3>who use my graph.scm module :)
<amz3>I copied my guile scheme tutorial to github
<amz3>a fixed a few things
<amz3>now, I need to do a goops tutorial
<amz3>davexunit: what are you up to?
<amz3>still working on the sly game?
<amz3>daviid: o/
<daviid>hello guilers
<daviid>hi amz3
<amz3>ACTION thinks that google changed their damn algorithm, now when I type sicp I get some random garbage
<amz3>ACTION use google but don't know why
<amz3>it should be ddg
<amz3>ddg brings sicp first for search://sicp
<amz3>well, I've reset firefox cache/preferences/whatever for speed purpose and it has bring back google as default search engine
<amz3>I wish there was support for search://foo+bar+baz in weechat
<ArneBab>amz3: I just tried to find some Filk¹ via Google and couldn’t find it even though I knew the lyrics. Yahoo turned it up… ¹: The Livejournal Shanty ☺
<ArneBab>amz3: so maybe, but it wouldn’t be the first time
<amz3>ArneBab: heya
<ArneBab>hi :)
<amz3>what is Filk?
<amz3>I was also wondering about your book, you introduce goops?
<amz3>ArneBab: ^
<ArneBab>I just say that it exists and give a short info about its flexibility
<ArneBab>amz3: Filk is roughly science fiction / fantasy / roleplaying / programming folk music
<ArneBab>music played by strange people, mostly on acoustic instruments :)
<karhunguixi>ACTION is more happy with than ddg
<ArneBab>I’ve been going to a Filk con every year for the last 10 years :)
<amz3>wait, I will go through your book to see it for real
<ArneBab>amz3: did you see that the py2guile pdf is now freely available?
<amz3>ArneBab: Filk sound really great, is reminds me of pornophonic
<amz3>ArneBab: no
<amz3>where is it
<amz3>sorry I don't have a feed reader
<amz3>did you publish something in guile mailling list
<ArneBab>not yet — I’ll try to get to doing things about which I have to think more after next week…
<amz3>I think you don't like to do marketing yourself ;)
<amz3>I'm looking for Filk on the web, it brings me a genre, can you recommend an artist? please :)
<amz3>ArneBab: yeah! I'm in the book at the "i" page, last item ;)
<ArneBab>Heather Alexander / Alexander James Adams, Tom Smith, Leslie Fish, Tricky Pixie, …
<amz3>I mostly listen to french hiphop, even you might call that a quest
<amz3>sorry it's pornophonique with "que". Nice rock with 8 bits bits...
<ArneBab>amz3: you can just look for filk on youtube.
<amz3>I like the idea
<amz3>ACTION read ArneBab book
<ArneBab>nice — game music revival ☺
<amz3>I did not game music was a genre
<ArneBab>do you know ocremix?
<ArneBab> ← remixing game music
<amz3>ah! there is even a hiphop still song
<amz3>well hiphop song I'd say
<davexunit>amz3: I'm still hacking on sly stuff. had to give up on the game jam, though. not enough time, too many technical issues.
<civodul>davexunit: oh :-/
<amz3>your aiming too high, the game I had in mind I think is doable ;)
<amz3>and is fast paced tetris which rather unique in the field
<davexunit>I was out of town for work all week, and I didn't get as much time to hack in the hotel as I thought I would.
<davexunit>it's not a total wash, the existence of the jam pushed me to release guile-sdl2 and upgrade Sly to use it.
<davexunit>so that's a win.
<ArneBab>davexunit: I also thought about making a game, but my PhD defense is on friday…
<paron_remote>davexunit: yeah good progress :)
<paron_remote>I'd like to play with guile-sdl2 when I get some time.......!
<paron_remote>.... (when will that be? :)
<civodul>"someday" i'd like to do a bit of programming with my daughter with Sly+SDL2 for visual fanciness
<civodul>not sure how well that'd work
<paron_remote>civodul: oh, I didn't realize you had a kid :)
<paron_remote>I liked the video of John Carmack talking about teaching his kid to program using drracket
<civodul>haven't seen that one
<civodul>things like Scratch are in fashion, but i don't like it
<civodul>it lacks expressive power
<paron_remote>yeah, well... even though I prefer Guile over Racket, I think Racket does a great job of having a nice jump-in teaching environment with drracket
<civodul>DrRacket with the picture language is very nice
<amz3>picture language or the turtle?
<amz3>or both ;)
<civodul>heh, like all French kids i did the turtle thing back then
<amz3>I never done it :(
<amz3>it's a thing in France?
<daviid>civodul: paron_remote it would be reasonably easy to implement drguile, using guile-clutter [not me though, just mentioning]
<amz3>drracket is so slow...
<amz3>I can't use it
<ArneBab>daviid: don’t you underestimate the effort to build a good editor?
<ArneBab>where everything fits together
<civodul>amz3: this thing:
<civodul>on this kind of hardware:
<civodul>but maybe you're too young ;-)
<civodul>;;; WARNING (module #<module () 262a990> not in submodules table)
<civodul>anyone seen that before?
<davexunit>civodul: new guile?
<civodul>no, 2.0
<civodul>i saw that while building Guix with the patch by taylan
<taylan>I don't think I saw that
<civodul>it seems to be harmless, but it's weird
<taylan>ah yes, got it too now.
