    I'm working on an SSG for personal use, using shell, awk, and (eventually) make. I'm basing it on ideas from mkws, shab, and others. So far, I just have a shell-script-to-HTML-templater and a sketch of a preprocessor. I'd say I'm still in the early idea stage. I'm still figuring out what I want source files to look like. But it's a fun diversion!

    Edit: It went really well, I should be updating this post with what I presented tomorrow.

    I'm currently working on a program that will periodically check the weather for you, and let you know when to open your windows in order to help cool off or heat up your home. Right now I'm just looking at something I can run locally on a raspberry pi, but I want to see if keeping things pretty modular helps me to potentially create a web app around it.

    I packaged some CUPS thermal printer drivers for NixOS yesterday. Surprisingly, CITIZEN (the company that produced the printer) publishes the source for the binary portions of the driver.
