The goal is to complete the tasks outline in a CH article. This post will contain the plan, as well as the notes on each task. A few of the exercises are already completed.
Plan and Task overview
[ ]Learning Lisp: I started going through Land of Lisp (Conrad Barski), since it was available with my O’reilly subscription. This is not mentioned in the reading list in the article, but was generally recommended in the #emacs channel from an unrealated thread. I am yet to formally start recording notes on this. The last time I bungled with lisp was via the SICP course which I never finished, though I did have some fun with scheme. This book is based on Common Lisp (CL).
- Completed Chapter 1.
[-]generate and secure GPG keys:
[X]Atleast on a basic level – I can generate keys today and encrypt files, on 3 machines. The keys were passed on through SCP in general.
[ ]securing the keys is something I have been thinking about and would like to discuss in the ossasepia channel.
[X]set up and operate a virtual server
[X]set up a blog
[ ]set up an IRC bouncer
- I have no clue what that means at the moment.
[ ]operate a server
- I have been thinking of wiping my old macbook of the Mac OS and use it as my my metal to begin with. I could start with installing Cuntoo on it. My current macbook is available to run the day to day.
[ ]run a “The Real Bitcoin” node
- A preliminary read has been done on this. The forward approach also depends on the method agreed to set up a server.
Land of Lisp
- The book uses ANSI Common Lisp
