We can run two threads printing "aaaa" and "bbbb"#

We can run two threads printing "aaaa" and "bbbb". Woo.

Unfortunately we can't start a third, because we're starting them from the toplevel, which is running in the idle thread, which is not getting scheduled because we're never idle because the other two threads are running

Or something.

Note to non-lispers: you may be used to the noun process meaning "unix process with its own address space and stuff". Due to its long tradiiton of ignoring^Wdespising Unix, Lisp often uses the term to mean what Unix people would call a thread. Neither side is about to give up, I suspect. (I tend to use either depending on how who I'm talking to and how much sleep I've had lately)

Oh, got some cyling done today too: the weather was too nice not to. Unfortunately I broke the mounting for my cycle computer after the first 18 seconds, so I have basically no idea how fast I was going for the rest of it. Probably not very.
