> We have changed the title to include three letter words in the hope that Google Scholar will index it this time.

There's a POPL paper titled do be do be do (Lindley et al., 2017). The title is so funny Google Scholar won't index it. Now they've published an extended version that tries to avoid the issue: doo bee doo bee doo.

Finger trees are a really cool data structure. I made a PR to containers to document some internals of Sequence:

I wanted to procrastinate a little by playing with hs-to-coq. Now I can't stop because I started writing a tutorial and somehow a point I was not trying to make turned into yet another tutorial on dependent types...

Praise Obj.magic! It keeps bailing me out of Coq extraction problems.

Oh shit, I've been using an unreleased version of coq-printf for so long, I forgot the next version adds a MAJOR feature (scanf) and I just bumped the version from 1.0.0 to 1.0.1 😱

Sweet drama around The Study on the effect of programming languages on software defects.

I figured out a name for my #Gopher client I wrote in #Haskell... "Waffle!"

Both "gopher" and "waffle" in French is "gaufre:"

"The origin of the word 'gopher' is uncertain; French gaufre, meaning 'waffle', has been suggested, on account of the gopher tunnels resembling the honeycomb-like pattern of holes in a waffle…"
—"Gopher," Wikipedia.

I only have a few things left before the first release!
