22:00 masak one item I can take off the roadmap: identifiers now have an optional context \o/
22:00 masak (and Q::Expr::Block is gone)
22:00 masak this is an important step towards getting good unquotes
22:01 vendethiel good.
22:03 masak oh, lol!
22:03 vendethiel ?
22:03 masak and I can now add a long-standing test that used to be failing, but that is now passing trivially
22:03 masak it's about macro arguments carrying their original environment
22:04 masak which they already *do* in this new regime, because -- though they get displaced *twice* -- they end up where they were so everything just works out.
22:04 * masak grins
22:04 masak yes, we're definitely on the right track here
22:05 masak vendethiel: by the way: https://twitter.com/Benabik‚Äč/status/672436877568434176
22:06 masak (I've read about half of it. I found it very compelling -- mostly because it feels like I understand what the heck they are on about, which is rare with something like Racket)
22:06 vendethiel I need to get motivated to do anything :`|
22:08 masak *pat pat*
22:09 vendethiel haha
22:15 vendethiel I'm faaar too lazy for life
22:19 masak I find motivation is something that comes and goes
22:19 masak for me, 007 is an unusually tenacious hobby project
22:20 masak probably partly because it's "bigger than me" -- I'm doing it for macros in Perl 6
22:20 vendethiel Yes, that seems like something indeed. It's mostly about tiredness for me, as I've found out
22:21 masak how's sleep?
22:29 vendethiel meh, pretty bad, but it's always been like that :)
22:29 vendethiel at least now I found that music can help me sleep.
22:49 vendethiel ...I should be sleeping anyways
22:52 masak 'night :)
