*civodul is on a basic Dell keyboard with us-intl layout, not very hacker-looking
<rekado_>my wrists are a bit sensitive ever since I switched to using these laptop keyboards. I have the kinesis advantage2 from work, but I don’t have enough space on my desk, so I’m trying to get used to this small atreus instead.
<civodul>rekado_: done, but do chime in as you see fit!
<PurpleSym>rekado_: I see a few packages in bioinformatics.scm use pandoc-citeproc. Do you know whether they manually invoke citeproc or just use it via pandoc? I’m going to remove pandoc-citeproc, since it’s deprecated.
<rekado_>today I’ll try to figure out what to do about my rserver patches.
<zimoun>dstolfa: yeah for sure. :-) Although I think this functional hygiene Guix provide is under represented and for me it has been a blow-up. Maybe my «monad is burrito» fallacy. ;-)
<rekado_>there’s a bug: when rserver runs as root it won’t actually use the target user’s session to determine the R version; it uses the root user’s configuration (which likely doesn’t even exist).
<dstolfa>zimoun: i understand the temptation to think of these things in a structured way, i'm just more of a formal person that would like a, well, formal definition of things without any handwaving. e.g. a claim "guix is a monad" has to define the monad fully, and ideally find the adjunction that corresponds to it (with the definition of the categories)
<dstolfa>i see too many things claim they are something only to fall apart when i try to use them as such
<rekado_>should work to use the static pandoc package instead.
<nckx>dstolfa: As someone with Haskell on the perennial ‘things I want to try when I have the time’ list (which I never do), your ‘notable example’ comment intrigues me. Care to elaborate? How does it fall short of what?
