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).

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!
