Spexy? Oh God What Did I Do…

I was seeking to clean out ~/devel today, and I found something. Something I’d forgotten. Something that is so bizarre I’m not even sure what I was thinking when I hacked at it. Something I had to double check that I’d actually written, because it was so foreign to me.

Then I noticed the date. Ah 2007, the Ambien era. When Space Lord Zolpidem guided me on battles through the multiverse on a nightly basis. I don’t remember a whole lot from 2007. Wish I could say the same for 2008, but I digress.

At some point in our adventures, SLZ and I apparently hacked together a LISP/Scheme-like python file encoding – “spexy”.

Keep in mind, this isn’t a scheme interpreter written in Python. No no no, this decodes to Python. I think I’m going to try and clean this up and see how much sense it can be made to make.

And then you can bet your ass I’m going to pollute GitHub with it.

Stay off drugs, kids.
