I'm so excited, for my #HackingMathematics book, #NoStarchPress has already sent me their \(\LaTeX\) templates and they compiled on the first try and they come with examples, and it totally looks like a No Starch book and omg omg omg this all makes it seem real you guys, I really #AmWriting a No Starch book.
Next stream will be tomorrow. I was told I should start with a more technical chapter instead of frontmatter/introduction, so I'll be working through a construction of the reals.
Oh yeah, and I'm so stoked to be showing off #Emacs to its full potential on stream too, I'm gonna soup it up with a full-fledged terminal emulator and maybe I'll use a full graphical web browser ooh maybe I'll get to write more math so you can see AUCTeX's preview mode this is funnnnn!!
@JordiGH I was looking at that exact link lmao I'm told ansi-term is so much better with it but the basic emulator is suiting my basic terminal needs fine as is (and for faster file management there's Dired) so I haven't bothered for now.
@ljwrites It's just that yesterday I wanted to show a couple of quick calculations in Maxima or Octave and I had some trouble with eshell.
@JordiGH yeah Elisp nerds are excited about eshell but even they admit it's janky and not yet mature.
