## General
- Extend [Simple unix tools](!Hawiki) to include more coreutils and maybe QuickCheck tests, and merge into HSH's ShellEquivs. Is there any useful merger of [HSH](, and `Language.Sh`/ShSh <!-- shsh survives in my local repo -->
- look for vector graphics libraries for Haskell; think about cloning DEFCON
- Translate the Lisp from Hofstadter's _Metamagical Themas_ into Haskell
- Split out Cpuperf's Sudo monad and make safer
- Clean up the SHA1 mess:
i. Ginsu: module SHA1 (sha1, sha1ShowHash, sha1String, sha1HashToBytes)
ii. HAppS: Kind of similar to Ginsu?
iii. Conjure: BSD FFI, module Conjure.Utils.SHA1 (sha1 :: ByteString -> ByteString)
iv. jhc: based on Igloo's original - module Util.SHA1 (sha1String,sha1file,sha1Bytes,hashToBytes,sha1Handle,ABCDE(..),Hash,emptyHash) where

- Remove [](!Hoogle); see [original]( [email thread]( and the GHC [bug report](
## Pandoc
- Write up what LaTeX Pandoc does understand; this can be found out by looking through the tests/
figure out how the new TeXmath figures in
## XMonad
- Look through my collection of XMonad configuration files. What can be done in XMonad core and XMonadContrib to simplify them?
- XMonad.WindowGo and WindowBring could use quite a bit of refactoring and generalizing.
- Hlint XMC
- Run 'sim_text -d `find XMonadContrib/XMonad`' on XMC
## Darcs
- Add --pager option to 'darcs changes' --this is a current [bug report](
- Look into darcswatch - can it be made more memory-efficient and usable on
## Gitit
- Caching needs improvements. Perhaps we can borrow from hackage-server and use 'Content-MD5' headers? This might be superior to expire headers.
# Programming (in general)
- English mode
i. Get predictive completion
ii. String syntax highlighting?
iii. English indenting - implement visual-syntactic text formatting ([VSTF]( in Haskell (appears to've been commercialized as [LiveInk]( Possibly using GF. Or perhaps some other Haskell library [Applications and libraries/Linguistics](!Hawiki).
- Programming challenges: [Sphere classical problems](, [Project Euler](, and [99 Haskell Problems](!Hawiki) (got to 11).
- [_How to Design Programs_](; another Scheme textbook
- There's also [_Structure and Interpretation of Classical Mechanics_](; is that best done before or after SICP?
- [Learn Prolog](, [Adventure in Prolog]( - important paradigm; knowing Prolog, I can do this textbook on [partial evaluation/Futamura projections](
- Write a clone of [Zendo (game)](!Wikipedia). It looks fun and doable, and doing it well would draw on all sorts of GUI and AI techniques. [Zendo wiki](, [online version](, [general page](; [automated analysis of Bongard problems]( (apparently a very similar problem); [rule generator](
- Learn TeX: [Help:Formula](!Wikipedia), <>, <>
- Learn Java: [JR's tutorials](; [JavaBat]( Don't forget local copy of _Thinking in Java_
## Mnemosyne plugins:
- Spell-checker for adding cards
- Metadata adder: in comment tags, add current date.
- Per-category 'vice-versa' setting
# General
- Look into throwing knives as a supplementary hobby to archery
- Math [notes](
- Compile a [_Lexicon Urthus_]( but for the [_Long Sun_](!Wikipedia "The Book of the Long Sun") & [_Short Sun_](!Wikipedia "The Book of the Short Sun") series instead; focusing particularly on the [thieves' cant](!Wikipedia) in it. Resources:
- <>

- Compile a [best of SL4]( list of emails/reading list (after finish reading _EML_)

## Devices
- A direction sensor belt (a ring of vibrators around one's waist; the one closest to North buzzes gently). See the [_Wired_]( article on it, and a [2009 article]( describing Sensebridge's Northpaw product The [feelSpace]( homepage is here. There is a thread on [Hackers News]( about building one's own Here's a [version of the belt]( made using [Arduino](!Wikipedia). There's a quasi-commercial version available for $119-214 from [Sensebridge]( ([video](, intended for wearing on one's ankle (the original ankle-based project is ["Noisebridge"]( There's an [Arduino-based belt](, then there's a [_hat_](! I think most approaches are just a little baroque; it might make more sense to have each vibrator be independent - with a vibrator, a compass, and a battery. After all, each one should be able to know independently of the others whether it is facing North or not.

- In the same vein as the feelSpace belt, it might be interesting to build a belt that vibrates in the direction of an desired object or location. Possible uses: in a library, it could buzz in the direction of a desired call #. Would be a cool project, anyway!
