Made it up to the Lair entrance and decided to call that quits for the night.
Well I've committed to Ru, but I'm also doing much better than this time (which is not very hard given how bad last game went)
Hm... I could sacrifice experience now, or I could wait to see about converting to Makhleb (much easier)
well if something better shows up before you sever one of your arms
Hm, Ru eh?
The nice thing about an early Ru worship is you can switch before you take any sacrifices so there's no penalty to joining the religion immediately early and backing out if something better shows up
Ok starting over as the old classic, draconian transmuter, still at the same url
wow died on the first monster
let's try again
Gonna celebrate getting the garbage collection shit working in spritely goblins by slacking the hell off tonight and playing some dungeon crawl stone soup on a live server
And because I'm a complete glutton for punishment I'm going to play as an octopode venom mage.
Watch me lose, live! http://crawl.akrasiac.org:8080/#watch-paroneayea
I wrote an update to the mega cap-talk thread about Goblins about the distributed gc stuff https://groups.google.com/d/msg/cap-talk/xWv2-J62g-I/vb7E0hB4AQAJ
Also the Agoric folks basically invented this design in past iterations so I can't be too smug ;)
This is a Big Fucking Deal
Wow uh, ok. I now have distributed garbage collection fully working in #Spritely Goblins it looks like? Done in these two commits: https://gitlab.com/spritely/goblins/-/commit/55c7297c58edda04f99e7226d1422d6367d7a77f https://gitlab.com/spritely/goblins/-/commit/36f736ddaa2e36e5afbddbe6daeac27a3edcfab1
Done across two half-days! That's... way faster than I expected. CapTP is amazing! http://erights.org/elib/distrib/captp/index.html
This means that Spritely Goblins now has a distributed programming environment that spans machines and can even reclaim references that other machines aren't using anymore...!!!!
oh okay even stranger
it did work fine
somehow in my tests I never exported the same value twice
maybe I'll just cry for a while
