I thought that I had indentified the main issue which is that inexact->exact, a procedure I call a lot, allocates memory. however, when I replace that procedure with a memoized version it doesn't seem to reduce GC footprint at all.
I spent nearly my entire train ride to work profiling my spatial partitioning code and trying to optimize it so that it doesn't slow to a crawl with more than ~600 objects in it. unfortunately I didn't really get anywhere besides learning that the main issue is way too much GC. I don't know how I can possibly cut down on the amount of allocation.
I no longer wish to be associated with the GNU project. I still love Guix and Guile because good people are in charge of them, but the overarching GNU project is more concerned with defending bigotry than opposing it.

this part of my fence has been fallen over for nearly a year. finally fixed it with some help from my wife and neighbor! new cedar posts (that I had to drill myself), same old fence panels.

I have been visited by a kitten pile.

Twitch is cancelled
Big surprise an Amazon company is full of scabs.
like, it doesn't take *that* much infra to be able to host a stable stream. activitypub integration would allow that to scale.
federated twitch - who's making that?

white people love to put words on every decoration. not every thing has to say "blessed" or "love" or "family" on it!
really not looking forward to when daylight savings time ends. MA is so far east that its very dark by the time most of us get out of work.
one pear tree planted.

Use paradigms that don't require Constant Flawless Vigilance https://capability.party/memes/2017/09/11/constant-flawless-vigilance.html
Confused deputy problems, such as the recent xorg being able to write over /etc/ files bug, dealing with CORS and XSS bugs, and so on are hard to keep on top of because the underlying paradigms require you to always be on guard. Even the best programmers will fuck up, so what hope is there for the rest of us?
Use safe paradigms, use object capabilities, design your systems so safe is the default.
