Have a look at Dave Abrams talk on POP as it relates to OOP.

Also need to look for OOP operating systems. Still need to discover if any substantial operating systems have survived that were written in pure OOP.

Also some problems with OOP written in a very formal way.

Finally! What looks like a half-decent Golang tutorial. Doesn’t look like it covers go mod though (but none do, not even the books).

Need to look into Olive for video editing on Linux. And apparently Blender is useful for video editing as well these days.


Came across the idea of having terminal/video themes based on the day. Beginner day might be pleasant and with blue while TryHard day might have red or tmatrix or something so that people can distinguish them easily in the VODs.

Also need to look into YouTube-DL for downloading videos without need for using the service. Also works for Twitch.

While demonstrating how to deploy a site from GitLab to Netlify I realized that the rw tool really needs to have a CI/CD mode so it can be used from Netlify and applied to published Pandoc Markdown so that the HTML is generated on Netlify and not stored in the Git repo itself. That would allow people to keep Markdown notes in GitLab or GitHub using the online editor there without any need to run the renderer locally. It comes at the cost, however, of performance and would not be very sustainable for very large knowledge nodes.
