Here is a bunch of apparently rare Hunter S. Thompson articles, that I ought to read: *HST โ€“ Rare Articles.

I have been trying to get myself together to learn Haskell for something like a decade now. When^WIf I get to be intermediate to advanced, I guess I should read What I Wish I Knew When Learning Haskell.

A REST framework for Haskell: Announcing rest - A Haskell REST framework. Cool! I think I may start with Scotty for just making a simple website. Growler I could not install on Debian unstable (base package too old).

I should set up Emacs for Haskell development properly.

I really ought to read up on Moose, roles and Composition over inheritance, but... isn't object oriented programming so last millenium? (It puts bread on the table, though, so maybe I shouldn't be putting it down quite so arrogantly.)

An article about "open source"/"free software" only on farming plants: Linux for Lettuce, which I was too lazy to read. See also: skeptical.

There is a cute introduction to Emacs lisp programming called "Casting SPELs in Emacs" - I got to page 5 before stalling. And the pages are short.

On the other hand, there is an Underhanded C Competition for avid C-programmers to compete in deceptiveness. My C is to rusty to try and compete. Or even read.

Advent calendars can be nice, this one is about free fonts, and in German. Perfect!
