1. Learning Go

    By peter
    That is, Go the programming language, not the board game.


    I've tremendously enjoyed learning Erlang some time back, and I've
    realized that besides the value the Erlang/OTP platform itself
    provided, learning a new computer programming language has all sorts

  2. Sample and Hold

    By peter

    From Neil Youngs superb and very underappreciated "Trans" album, 1982. I think I liked the album partly because it annoyed the folk lovers I grew up with ;-)
