@clacke i'm not too bummed about using it at work, really. i have a good job and they treat me well. the only downsides are they don't really produce any free software and i'm not socially aligned with the other employees. i can put up with boring tools and differing ideologies if i'm respected and my work is actually helpful to people.
#guile is a lovely language to tinker with, you'll have a lot of fun and the community is very helpful. i tried to make it my general purpose language for a while because it lacks some of the overhead of common lisp. the small selection of pre-baked libraries kind of killed that plan. i have questions about its portability as well. i still revisit it sometimes.
