cliki outage

The cliki.net domain expired on November 21. I just paid the renewal fee at the registrar, so hopefully it will be back to life soon.

update It's back now. I also just found out I paid the renewal fee under emergency circumstances last year too. Who the hell gets the renewal reminder notices, anyway? I swear, I won't pay it again in 2008!



asdf-install useful?

I'm not sure if asdf-install is a solution or a problem. All I know is that it DTRT about half the time. A "working" system would, in order of importance, (1) provide up-to-date libraries that didn't puke, (2) handle dependencies well, (3) be smart about knowing which lisp (and which version) I use, and (4) (I can dream) do all this completely behind the scenes with zero knowledge or action on my part.

asdf-install currently does none of these in a reliable way. It's a huge step forward, but doesn't reach the level of magic that I wish for. Apt-get a python library-- super easy, super fast, super reliable. Or pull a perl module off CPAN. Fairly easy, fairly fast and fairly reliable. For all that asdf is awesome, I don't marvel at it so much as I wonder about the future it promises.

Oh, I forgot the original reason I wanted to comment: thanks much for saving Cliki.
