Hello. My name is Timur but people of the Web know me as @bouncepaw.

I'm interested in linguistics (that's a really cool thing; so many things to discover) and computers. Things I like in computers are keyboards, shells, programming languages and macro processors.

I have a website (https://bouncepaw.github.io) where I post sometimes. It is in Russian mostly but there is one article in English: the one about my keyboard Sequira (https://bouncepaw.github.io/sequira-en). Keyboards are my passion. I'm not from those guys who spend 4-digit sums on keycaps; I am the one who builds custom ergonomic keyboards in search of the best one. Actually, I'm going to build a new one soon.

I can code in some languages. I really like Lisp, it's making me crazy. I have GitHub account (https://github.com/bouncepaw).

Macro processors like m4 or cpp are cool. I think these are one of the most elegant techs; I don't understand why they are underrated now. I'm slowly developing a macro processor called Toratau that is going to be the best macro processor out there: m4 is ridiculous, cpp is limited, others are unknown.

I live in Telegram (me: https://t.me/bouncepaw, my channel (more content than on the site): https://t.me/bpblog).

Nice to meet you!

Hello Bouncepaw!

You mentioned that you like lisp, I have a book on it and I was wondering if you would recommend learning the language.

(the book is Land of Lisp)
Code:
[ oh yeah ]

Hello Bouncepaw,
I really dig your workstation screenshots.

Learning Lisp is always a good idea. It's fun and beautiful. But I was talking about Scheme Lisp.

Talking about the book, I have no idea if it's good or not. Since you have it you should read it.

Scheme is a good language - I moved on to Racket a while ago, as Common Lisp's environment is rather conservative sometimes. But how can you say that keyboards are your passion and still not use a Model F? :-p

Welcome to nixers.

I've been using Racket but somehow I ended up on Chicken Scheme. I like both of them.

Model F is one of the first keyboards with modern design. I do dislike this design: stupidly staggered rows, one-key thumbcluster, etc. My passion is cool keyboards! Model F (and, of course Model M) are not of them.

I admit that I never found a reason to try a non-Racket Scheme. As Racket is slowly being rebuilt as an extension to Chez Scheme, I can imagine that the shattered Scheme ecosystem will eventually be more streamlined though.
