named let, confusing everyone who's never seen a named let since the introduction of named lets

I look forward to post-covid times where I can get a proper massage to help mitigate some of the horrible back pain I've been experiencing

It might make sense to stop if only because I don't know if my back can handle me sitting here much longer

Ah yes! I just realized I have a way of simplifying the number of layers I need to "solve on"... good, and this fixes a temporary kluge.

I've outlined a lot and also started the simpler refactoring. If that's all I get done tonight, that's still progress.

I'd livestream my coding process on this if it weren't boring as shit and filled with long periods of me talking to myself in org-mode and occasionally staring at the screen

My current org-mode tree is this many levels deep:

augh jeebus

this is hard to think through, so many pieces to keep alive in my head. this might have to be a no-intarwebs hack session to get it done

Tonight's goal: finish integrating so that making captp connections over tor onion services is (mostly) easy.

It's currently possible, but definitely not easy. Messy, manual hand-wiring. It should be mostly automatic.

It'll probably be a late night, and a zombie tomorrow.

A thing I hate that nobody cares about except for people who have spent *way* too much time sitting in standards meetings: that the URI struct in Racket is called "url"

On the other hand it's lead to the uncomfortable situation where people start asking me what my favorite albums are and I start listing soundtracks from early-nineties SNES games

Ah yes, "the oldies"

Maybe the thing I was the most ahead of the curve in terms of my peers was listening to video game music while programming

I won't pretend that makes me cool though
