<ArneBab>sneek: later tell civodul: wouldn’t it be better to add a header to each page in that points visitors to 3.0?

<ekaitz>hi! I've been using the debugger these days and I didn't find a command to remove all the traps so I made one, should I send a patch?
<ekaitz>it's a very simple thing (map delete-traps! (list-traps)) but it might be useful

<taw10>Before I construct an abomination involving hash-for-each and an escape continuation, is there a fast way of determining whether or not a hash table is empty? I don't care how many entries there are, only if it's zero or not.
<taw10>Actually, it's not such an abomination: (let/ec return (hash-for-each-handle (lambda (key) (return #f)) ht) #t)
<jab>cwebber: your latest dustyweb blog past was pretty rad.
