mircea_popescu: spyked> I think there's great benefit in the ffa chapter-based approach << that ~started with a genesis~.
mircea_popescu: so did diana_coman 's eucrypt.
mircea_popescu: genesis should have included exactly the thing you published.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: << imho a genesis oughta be a proggy, if a minimal one << nah, a genesis can well be nothing more than the manifest, if the manifest is a one line poem.

mircea_popescu: there is ~no~ benefit to delaying genesis-ification. all it buys one is the naggum stupidity,
a111: Logged on 2018-06-25 06:15 mircea_popescu: this habit of "i'll publish" is on the record having killed more smart men than the police.
mircea_popescu: that's the one part of naggum you absolutely do not want.
mircea_popescu: we already have a mechanism to deal with irrelevance, there's no need for an ad-hoc, broken, personal implementation whenever something useful may be occuring, to fuck it up.

mircea_popescu: but to reiterate : there's nothing wrong with a broken, not complete, not working, not pretty etc genesis. most neonates are also not worth the fucking.

The item in question:

As per the readme, one can press it directly using e.g. mod6's V implementation:

mkdir ~/src/adalisp
cd ~/src/adalisp

mkdir .wot
cd .wot && wget && cd .. init press adalisp_genesis adalisp_genesis.vpatch
