<zacts>lo guix
<mark_weaver>civodul: thanks for taking care of the /usr/bin/file thing!
<mark_weaver>hi zacts!
<zacts>lo mark_weaver
<_`_>what's “lo”? short for hello?
<zacts>lo = hello
<_`_>looks weird
<zacts>it's from #minix on freenode
<zacts>I blame them for the habit
<zacts>but you can represent it in binary 10
<zacts>or an abstract lo ,.
<_`_>my friend posts pictures of minix there
<zacts>It would be cool to either utilize ideas from minix in other systems, such as the HURD, or to use the minix core OS and microkernel with a gnu userland eventually
<zacts>and to make this work with GUIX somehow
<zacts>but that's probably at least five years from now
<zacts>we would probably have more luck adding a kFreeBSD to guix
<_`_>I still need to read that Tanenbaum book
*zacts does too
*zacts owns the latest edition of the book
<_`_>yeah I'm interested in eventually trying guix on freebsd
<davexunit>5 years, that's some long term thinking. reminds me of some home decor I saw at Target that said something like "shoot for the moon. even if you miss, you'll land among the cold vacuum of space and die." something like that...
<mark_weaver>hehe :)
<davexunit>it was next to a framed "live. laugh. lisp." print.
<davexunit>okay, I'll stop.
*zacts is learning awk and sed
<zacts>the gnu versions
<civodul>davexunit: 'guix environment' should be significantly faster now
*civodul -> zZz
<davexunit>yeah? :D
*davexunit checks git log
<davexunit>bye civodul
<davexunit>you're a machine!!
<zacts>I'm a turtle
<zacts>and let me tell you, life is hard being a turtle
<davexunit>are you the turtle that I can command to draw things with using LOGO?
<zacts>@_ <- a snail (8)> <- a turtle
<zacts>(built with my own DSL in logo)
