cool sha prefix, usually it has alpha too 55933033
almost have ./configure && make clean && make && make install running, and then I can start seriously chipping away at the remaining Ruby dependencies
:grinning:
Zak Storer
@zacts
nice!
so the goal is to have zero reliance on a system ruby to build rubinius?
Brian Shirai
@brixen
yep, that's the goal
what I just committed gives us a nice path to that we can begin using now
I should have done this years ago
Brian Shirai
@brixen
@zacts did you crack the book open? :grinning:
Zak Storer
@zacts
I just got back to my place actually. Let me try to find it in my library.
Brian Shirai
@brixen
commit to reading it 15 min per day and you'll be done in no time
Zak Storer
@zacts
ok
I'm looking for it. It should show up soon
Zak Storer
@zacts
Yeah, I've got some serious OCD and inability to focus quite often. Something I'm really working on.
Brian Shirai
@brixen
@zacts what do you find helps you with that?
Zak Storer
@zacts
@brixen That's a good question. I have been formally tested for various conditions, and from what I understand I don't have a physical neurological basis for a lack of focus. I passed the coordination exams for being able to focus on certain kinds of tasks. My issue I think has more to due with conditioned lack of focus. So, it's something I can definitely improve upon, Scientifically. I do have diagnosed OCD though. In a micro sense, indeed, tools like the pomodoro technique have been very beneficial to me, but in an overall organize my life kind of sense the structure often collapses. In one sense I do really well with formal structure, such as college classes or a work situation where I have obligations, but in another sense I can lose focus if I want to expand beyond that. So, maybe for me a balance of both very rigid structure and organic non-linear structure combined together is the solution. I seem to do very well with strict structure at the beginning of my day, and then expanding out into organic less rigid structure later on. I plan to keep a log of what seems to be working well for me and what doesn't. I often burn out if I have only rigid structure because I want to explore different avenues, but I often accomplish nothing when I have no structure. I don't know if this answers your question at all. :smiley:
The pomodoro technique is very effective for particular tasks though.
When I was studying ancient Greek, I could focus on that for a long while. It's odd, but I could barely complete my Spanish homework. And it wasn't just laziness, like I was seriously trying at it.

@brixen
Focus and priority are huge challenges for a lot of people in every domain

@zacts
I have a more difficult time with long reading sessions than I do with mechanical mathematics / language / computer language sessions.
Brian Shirai
@brixen
Some people make their whole career out of coaching for athletics or business etc
So finding what works for you is important
Zak Storer
@zacts
So I do well with mechanical kinds of things, but more direct focus things like heavy deep reading has been more of a challenge for me. I don't know why.
indeed yes
Brian Shirai
@brixen
Did you find your book? 😄
Zak Storer
@zacts
I had a therapist I was working on with some of this too.
my book, I seem to have misplaced it, but I have found an ebook for the time being
Brian Shirai
@brixen
Cool, did you start reading it?
Zak Storer
@zacts
I'll commit 10 min per day on it :smile:
I will begin today
I'll post a log on Gist or something
Brian Shirai
@brixen
Ok! I’ll check in with you about that, if you want
Zak Storer
@zacts
sure, that would be awesome
Brian Shirai
@brixen
👍
Zak Storer
@zacts
@brixen it will show up here. I will do my first log in just a bit
Brian Shirai
@brixen
@zacts how did reading go today?
Zak Storer
@zacts
@brixen https://github.com/zacts/reading_logs/blob/master/beginning_of_infinity.md <-- I got my 10 min. in. I'm within the first 1/2 of ch 1.
Brian Shirai
@brixen
@zacts :thumbsup: :grinning:
Zak Storer
@zacts
http://releases.llvm.org/ <-- 9.0.0 is released
Brian Shirai
@brixen
Yay!
Brian Shirai
@brixen
no Homebrew install for LLVM 9.0 yet though :frowning:
Brian Shirai
@brixen
sweet, LLVM 9.0 is now available in Homebrew :grinning:
Brian Shirai
@brixen
had a thought about CodeDB, I've been thinking about integrating IPFS for a couple years, but I realized that if I make the CodeDB on disk be compatible with a local cache of IPFS, then I can have a single mechanism, so I'll look into that
then the next step of using IPFS instead of rubygems / libraries will be almost trivial
Brian Shirai
@brixen
interesting that macOS Catalina has zsh as the default instead of bash
Brian Shirai
@brixen
RIP Dashboard too, but at least there's a calculator app with built-in conversions
Brian Shirai
@brixen
almost have first Rubinius build under LLVM 9.0 and Catalina, the future is near :grinning:
Catalina locking down the root dir and moving files gave me a moment of panic because I had all my source in a dir off root :worried:

rubinius 4.6 (10.0 ee4b0752 2019-09-07 9.0.0) [x86_64-darwin19.0.0]

@ljulliar
Hey! Looks like LLVM 9.0 likes Rubinius :-)
