It's fun to sometimes encounter new packages by looking at recent guix commits. I'm amused by this one:

(define-public badass
(package
(name "badass")
...
(synopsis "Hacking contribution graphs in git")
(description
"Badass generates false commits for a range of dates, essentially
hacking the gamification of contribution graphs on platforms such as
Github or Gitlab.")
(home-page "github.com/umayr/badass") ...)))

Yess! Or a hardware tutorial that says "solder this down here!
...

Oh but don't *actually* do that because everything breaks when you do that & then you'll have to order a whole new board, so instead do this..." 😩

TFW you do an example from the tutorial and it keeps !@$%'ing erroring and you keep trying to figure out what you did wrong

then you read one more line forward and it says "surprisingly this errors and here's why"

There was a large cryptomining script attack on government websites this weekend. Unsigned JS files from a single service was responsible.

I accidentally almost signed an email with "Thanks for reaching out?" instead of "Thanks for reaching out!"

I caught it right before I sent it, but it's amazing how much difference one character can make in meaning.

Guix is officially participating in Outreachy: outreachy.org/2018-may-august/

Are you an underrepresented person in tech? Guix is a cool project with a great community, and Outreachy is a great program to participate through. Spend your summer hacking on and learning about lisp/scheme, functional package management, and more!
