I've been hacking on adding JIT compilation to Emacs. (You can read about it on my blog.)

While doing this I looked into a number of JIT libraries: at least Dynasm, GNU libjit, GNU lightning, gcc-jit, LLVM, and cretonne.

Today I found out that there's another one, Eclipse OMR. I wish I'd known about this earlier, because there was a FOSDEM talk about it... OMR doesn't seem to be documented and it would have been nice to be able to quiz someone about good ways to get started.

I wrote a pkg-config file the other day. I wonder why libtool can't make these - it already has all the needed information. But then I also wonder why both of these tools exist -- I guess I wish pkg-config was just some compiler flag.

I read this about sneezing and "bless you".

In college I knew someone who claimed: "I don't believe in God, and nobody I know believes in God"... and so when someone sneezed he would say "damn you".

I've given in and resized my Emacs frames and terminal windows to 100 characters wide.

TIL there are some subtle differences between __thread and thread_local. For some uses __thread is still better.

I also now believe that the Unicode poo emoji, at least, must be redefined as a composing character.
