Of the programming languages I use, CL is currently the one I enjoy using most, probably because of its support for linguistic abstraction.

2005-01-10: While setting up a news spool, I had the idea of feeding it a complete comp.lang.lisp archive. I have found some partial downloadable archives, but I wonder if there's a way to get a complete archive short of spidering groups.google.com? If you know of one, please let me know.

2005-01-12: So far, I found the old files from the AI repository and a few MB from someone who actually did spider Google groups (up to ca 2000)...

Born out of the slightly silly idea that CL's C[AD]+R functions would make for a funny variation on the popular "tiny" url theme, I hacked together LispURL.com on a long winter evening between Christmas and New Year's Eve 2004, using CMUCL 19a, Araneida 0.9 and "yet another HTML generating macro". (If you want to give it a try, the best way is to bookmark the bookmarklet.)

I live in Cologne, Germany.
