Remaining goals for 2018

There is a lot I have to learn about Plan9.  I know most of what I need to know, but doing the following will round out my knowledge of the environment:

  1. Install and configure sectore – Now that I know how factotum works, I want my secrets stored in a centralized place, easily accessible from any machine.
  2. Install and configure venti – I need this for backups and dumps.
  3. Install and configure a CPU server – I would like to have numerous terminals open doing different things running on CPU’s on other servers.  Why not?
  4. Install and configure a separate ‘home’ file server – This will keep me from having to copy files from all over the damn place.
  5. Write a real 9p file server – I need to do this sooner or later.  Might as well do it sooner.  Most of the dev projects I want to do demand it.
  6. Port the Styx HTTP proxy from “Inferno Programming with Limbo” to C and 9front – I need something to work behind the corporate firewalls I am constantly behind
  7. Setup a 9front fileserver out on GCP – This will be interesting as it will, most likely, be a KVM instance on Linux.  If anyone has any other ideas please let me know.
  8. Port minilisp over to 9front – I already have done a Scheme Interp port, but it is very rudimentary.  Minilisp is much better example of a real Lisp interp.  It even has GC.
  9. Start working on the Game Engine and Audio Engine for 9front – TBD

We’ll see how it goes.
