These are my cyberpunk watermelons.
What make them so cyberpunk you may ask?

They listen to a lot of synthwave. 😎

You don't even have an interactive main content but only text and pictures!

So a dev writes a blog post about “Fast : Competing with C at parsing XML”¹ but returns 404 for the feed url² advertised on his site³.

Yeah, true, the fastest XML parsing is when there is no XML to parse⸮. Eh, those clever Haskell folks.


“It looks like that YouTube shipped a new obfuscated JS player” ―

Without youtube-dl I will stop using . That’s all.
The last stronghold of Google in my dominion.

(Some folks are even surprised that now commercial entities try to dictate how Haskell ecosystem should look like. I call them Stuckers. Cute name.)

Please, consider using reciprocal licenses to resist Big Corp. Look how Google is allergic to AGPL. This shit works folks. Use it.
