The return of ‘Do You Even Lisp?’

I didn’t expect to drop off the face of the planet for nearly two
months.

But I decided to go off and learn lisp “in my spare time”—which took
a while. And then I decided that the best way to do that was to write
a minor mode for blogging to complement org-mode. And then I decided
that to give myself incentive, I wouldn’t do any blogging until I had
it working.

It took a little longer than I had hoped—in part because I think I
was overly ambitious; I was going to learn a new language well enough
to write an extension in it, and make it as functionally-pure as I
could, and make sure that it’s well tested….etc., etc. I wasn’t
just going to hack something out.

So it took a while. And there are still rough edges that I will
continue to file off. But if you can see this post, you know it’s
working.
