And we are at a full circle

Posted on by nek0 in

Time to make a new update. Quite a few things happened lately:

As I posted earlier I had switched back to Debian. This did not last long. After visiting NixCon and learning about all the cool new stuff coming to NixOS (and after breaking my Debian system) I decided to give NixOS another shot and installed it all. I even got my graphics setup to work properly thanks to the Optimus Prime setup options.

Now I am learning how to handle haskell.nix, an alternative builder for Haskell projects I learned about at NixCon. It works quite well, despite still being marked as experimental. What I still struggle with, is the setup of packages depending on other packages available only locally. Until I can resolve this issue, some of my Haskell development is halted. If someone has some resource at hand on how to achieve this other than the official docs, I would be very grateful for a nudge in the right direction.

Some other thing, which happened longer ago, but I failed to announce properly: Eidolon, my image gallery is down and I am planning to change the scope and rewrite the project. I took the gallery offline after new legislation passed the european parliament known as “Article 13”, which would have forced me to either implement content filtering for copyright infringements at upload or buy this service externally. The first seems impossible with my resorces and the latter I am not willing to do. So the gallery will change to a single-user gallery software.

And this concludes today’s update. I will be present at 36C3, so if you want to get in touch, you may find me there. I will be most likely hanging around the ChaosZone assembly or you can call me on DECT 6350.
