the most thrilling update of all time, right? I added a yellow greater than sign, everyone is excited I'm sure

Here's a start.
First screenshot. Just laying some things out. dustycloud.org/tmp/spaaaace1.p

I promised that if I get up to $500/month on Patreon that I'd make a terminal-based space shooter. I'm not going to make a finished game of it, but maybe I can make a teaser. (I won't release a finished game until that milestone hits though.) patreon.com/posts/new-goal-bas

We're already 80% of the way there so seems doable. And I've already built a prototype of an (unreleased) similar demo so...

Let's see if I can get something interesting done before my next flight.

@dthompson Oh hello what's this? I don't completely follow but it sure sounds cool.

Also it's nice to read you posting about train hacks again! :)

Apparently mark has now said that he misunderstood, and was asked if he wanted to be appointed co-maintainer, but the action had not actually occured. lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui

I still find it strange, but that's definitely less of an extreme action than what I had understood previously.

Tagged and released Goblins v0.4. New stuff:

- Vats (independent event loops)
- Sending messages between vats
- Promises overhaul
- Overhaul to actor/goblin constructors
- Removed procedure-ness of live-refrs. An explicit "call" is now required for immediate calls, but now there's also a "$" alias for calling.

Lots of small things too.

Guile and Guix are two of the nicest places to be in GNU currently, and quite frankly some of the most interesting; as far as relevance of GNU as an organization that does new and interesting things, there's only a small handful of projects that I really feel excited about the developments of. (GNU in its early days, was a very innovative project, but after some time I think stopped putting effort there.)

If there's a future to hope for in GNU, its path forward is lead by those projects.

It's also worth reading @dthompson's followup here lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui

David's experience is also mine; there's a reason I dropped my association as a "GNU hacker", which used to be the way I identified myself for some time.

For many people, I'm sure these things seem to be shocking, as if all of this is happening at once. I'm shocked by how fast things have devolved, but not the way they are, because I already saw and tried to change for years how bad it was until I gave up.

RMS pulls a serious power move (read: dick move), unilaterally appointing a maintainer to Guile without consulting the other co-maintainers or community, because the current co-maintainers disagree with him on governance lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui
