I'll be mostly offline the next few days. Sorry. I need to get things done and I don't have the energy to expend on social things right now.
In other news, I am making good progress. I just merged a bunch of code into #Spritely Goblins' master branch. Inter-vat communication is now working for same-process vats. Multiple process/server vat communication coming soon... that's when we'll hit the real actual "secure distributed programming" promise of Spritely Goblins. https://gitlab.com/spritely/goblins
Great post by @emacsen about the ups and downs of using canonical s-expressions https://write.emacsen.net/thoughts-on-canonical-s-expressions

Bernie canceling campaign events due to health issues for now https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/02/politics/bernie-sanders-artery-blockage-2020/index.html
Sorry to hear it. I hope he gets better.
Politically, I'm not too worried; I think if Bernie drops out at this point it'll lead to a near-guarantee win for Warren over Biden at this point.
@cwebber Thanks for the shoutout! Plenty of Habitat related stuff on there for anyone interested in the history of virtual worlds.
re: PSA for pulseaudio users
@masterofthetiger Pulse added a "feature" imitating Windows a while ago where they tried to "simplify" the volume levels so that instead of individual programs having their own volume levels, there was "one" volume level
Except even that wasn't really. It ended up really changing it as the volume went up, but when you moved an individual program down, that one program would be quieter, so you might turn up the general volume and be "blasted" by another program.
Never forget that there is an Amiga game named Fury of the Furries https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fury_of_the_Furries
