1. 3
    • Getting over COVID before setting up some job interviews.
    • Playing games (like Diablo II and III).
    • Working on crust shell more.
    1. 6

      The “Captured identifiers in format strings” is very nice.

      1. 5

        While that is pretty nice, I’m excited about:

        • File::options
        • Metadata::is_symlink
        • Path::is_symlink

        Being stabilized. They were some of the main reasons some of my projects used nightly.

        1. 5

          If, like me, you’re ever wondering what’s coming in the next release, you can check the relnotes tag: https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues?q=issue+label%3Arelnotes

          Spoiler: 1.59 will be stabilization of inline assembly!

          1. 3

            What I really like is that you can also pass the formatting parameters like the field width without the awkward width=width.

            I just changed format!("{:>width$}", s, width=count_len) into format!("{s:>count_len$}")

          1. 4

            Here’s are some pics (1 of my monitors, and 1 is a screenshot):

            1. 4

              Merry X-Mas! Enjoy your time off, have fun. :D

              1. 2
                • X-Mas of course!
                • Play Diablo III with my mother (it’s one of the few things we both enjoy, so it’s nice to play it with her)
                • Chill out to some absolutely banging metal music
                1. 8

                  Non-programming languages:

                  • German
                  • Icelandic (currently learning it actually)
                  • Swedish

                  Programming languages:

                  • Going to really try and give Python another chance (though I doubt I’ll get far)
                  • More fluency in Lua
                  • Various lisps
                  1. 2

                    Good luck with the language learning! I’m personally learning Hebrew (well, was learning, recent busyness put a stop to it)

                    1. 1

                      For the human languages: are you planning to move to any of these countries or just for the fun of it?

                      1. 3

                        Icelandic is more important, I have a friend in Iceland and I was planning to take a trip there sometime. As for German and Swedish, I just like those languages so those will be for the fun of it.

                    1. 1
                      • Hoping for a response from the job applied for
                      • Hopefully implementing job control and also working on some finishing touches for the customizable prompt for crust
                      • Working on some side projects like a file manager and a project that exports currently installed Rust crates and allows you to manage them (via install/uninstall/etc)
                      1. 1

                        Just applied for a job, so really nervous about it.

                        Besides that, working on crust shell (lots of stuff has been done! I’m just working on implementing job control then I’ll showcase it in it’s own post), learning Icelandic, and working on being more social by going to events at a local college that I got my GED at.

                        1. 6

                          Taking a break from programming for a bit. Starting to get pretty stressed out again about various aspects.

                          Mainly stuff like licensing, which is a constant cause of stress (I have rigid opinions about it).

                          Besides that, I got my driving permit so I’m practicing driving. And I’m also working on my social anxiety by going to some events I were invited to.

                          1. 2

                            That sounds awesome! Have fun :)

                              • Working on crust shell, and maybe a little more on a bash/cmd hybrid scripting lang
                              1. 1

                                Saw this and was looking forward to joining, however they use Google Calendars to provide a Zoom invite link.

                                On top of that they won’t be recording sessions either.

                                Yeah, that was a little bit of a buzz kill.

                                        I approve. I have concerns, but I approve.

                                        1. 1

                                          Like? I genuinely want to hear peoples’ thoughts about it, and anything about the project.

                                          If something is wrong or seems off I’m more than happy to change it.

                                          Because this is one of those projects that feels… special to me?

                                          I really like the direction it’s heading, I really look forward to developing it more.

                                          Anticipation for programming it is what’s getting me through school stuff.

                                          It even has an amazing contributor already as well.

                                          1. 2

                                            Mainly just that it appears to be an eldritch horror staring into my soul with a single giant, luminescent eye. Which is pretty cool, if a little startling.

                                            Still a prettier mascot than Go’s gopher, though. /s

                                            1. 2

                                              Honestly, more software projects should have eldritch horrors for their mascots. If nothing else, it would be more accurate.

                                                Working on cRUSTy, a toy shell written in Rust.

                                                It has been so much fun! It is the kind of project I’ve been looking for, for a while.

                                                A project to really get invested in.

                                                This is a project that is rapidly being updated!

                                                So if you’re interested in an up-and-coming shell (I plan to make it more than a toy), keep watch on it. I also regularly toot about it on my Mastodon account.
