Welcome to my new blog. I'm retiring Step Away from the REPL in favor of this one, which will be more free-form in the sense that I will write about anything that comes to mind, rather than only Lisp or programming. That being said, I won't stay away from programming topics on purpose and probably will still jabber about it quite a bit, like for example in this very blog entry.
So yes, I still do a lot of programming in my free time. I'm working on a computer-go engine which I call Dakengo. I don't have a webpage for it yet, but that will be addressed. There is a backend written in Common Lisp (specifically SBCL) where all of the decision-making is implemented, as well as support for SGF and GTP and various other bits of infrastructure. And there are some pieces, such as the GUI, implemented in other languages. I'll write more about Dakengo in the future.
Anyway, there it is. Thanks for reading this stuff.
