Cleanliness is indeed next to godliness. — Christopher Morley (1890–1957)
Cleanliness becomes more important when godliness is unlikely. — P. J. O’Rourke (b. 1947)

  • We apologize, again, for the mishap that afflicted the v1000-to-v1003 update. At long last we’re able to award the lion’s share of the ranks that we’d planned to give out as compensation for the lost time.

2/15/2017 v1003
I met in the street a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, his cloak was out at the elbows, the water passed through his shoes, — and the stars through his soul. — Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

  • Housing mannequins now correctly display shifting tie-dyed cloaks and shirts.
  • We had some reports of “choppy” sound playback in the v1000 Mac client. With any luck, v1003 fixes that.

1/25/2017 v1000
If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years, how man would marvel and stare. — Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
