I have yet to find a single templating system I like, and I've even written my own. Multiple times. Yet, every time I do and every time I look at an existing one, there's just always so many things that bother me and I have yet to figure out a system that I might even begin to like.

The Impossibility of You - Confession 20

A thought game I frequently come back to is how impossible it is for the human mind to imagine being anything but itself. More specifically, we are not able to properly imagine what it would be like to be someone else. This is interesting because we so often like to pretend that we can.

As I could not come up with an idea for a confession all day, I present to you two small Common Lisp utility packages I wrote today.

Radiance? - Confession 14

When I initially picked up Common Lisp my intention was to rewrite TyNET in it, with the focus on making a properly usable and extensible web framework that other people could profit from as well. And while that did indeed happen to an extent it was not satisfying to me and I felt like the old approach of just going at it would not yield respectable results.
