There’s a bunch of buzz about Ruby’s new YJIT in v3.2.0. I have to develop and maintain a bunch of Jekyll websites for work, some of which are getting into “non-trivial build time” territory (or maybe I’m really easily distracted, but a 30s build is enough for me to break my flow).

As part of my ongoing quest to Emacs-all-the-things, I’m a long-time satisfied user of the mu email client. I even wrote the latest CI infrastructure setup for the project as a way to give back to Dirk-Jan and the rest of the awesome mu team.

I’ve been a bit quiet on this blog for the last few weeks[^weeks] because I’ve been organising ACMC2020: the 2020 Australasian Computer Music Conference. From the conference landing page:
