I gave a talk on: “Managing Python Dependencies
in GNU Guix” in PyconKE 2022 held at USIU.
I added some notes on editing case-attributes
here after a meeting with Rob. He’ll be going
on holiday, and while he’s away, I’ll try to
address every thing he raised in collaboration
with other researchers.
I aced some CAT. Results came out and in the
words of said lecturer: “Some gentleman
submitted a professionally looking
document”. FWIW, I use orgmode and export
documents to LaTeX.
Submitted, albeit hacky, some CAT solutions for
some other unit (group work). This probably
requires more work and a re-submission. I doubt
I have the energy and mental band-width to make
a significant contribution to the group.
It’s exam month, so mental note to self: “Hack a
way to make revising part of your routine.”
Yet another take-away CAT handed out this week.
I hate R-Studio. It’s such a pain and hassle to
work with in terms of basically installing it in
Arch Linux; and making it work in tandem with
GNU Guix in it’s package manager capacity. Last
week, I spent way too much time trying to
configure R-Studio. This was time poorly spent.
Long Form Reading
I made some progress in:
Harville Hendrix’ “Getting The Love You Want.”
BJ Fogg’s “Tiny Habits.”
Started reading: “The Blade Itself”.
Papers I started reading:
Code Staging in GNU Guix by Ludovic Courtés.
Functional Package Management with Guix by
What Every Programmer Should Know About Memory
by Ulrich Drepper.
Personal & Miscellaneous
I finally got around to deleting my Facebook
account! Now, the only social media site I
sparsely use is Twitter. Also, I’ve switched off
mobile notifications for almost all of my apps
on my android device. I genuinely believe that
social media is bad for one’s mental health.
I bought a squish ball and a “spinner” toy :)
Learnt how to use Emacs Embark.
Bought some art supplies; I intend to start
sketching and painting.
I’m becoming better at managing my inner self;
and also generally doing meaningful tasks, be
they personal or (FOSS) work-related.,
I’m happy that I’ve been consistently
I installed qutebrowser as an alternative to
Nyxt and Firefox. I’m still learning how to use
