The v1146 update is scheduled for Wednesday 6 November 2019.
“But the plans were on display…”
“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”
“That’s the display department.”
“With a flashlight.”
“Ah, well, the lights had probably gone.”
“So had the stairs.”
“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom
of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory
with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard’.”

Words are like spices. Too many is worse than too few.

We expect that the next major version of macOS, Catalina (10.15), will
be released in the next few weeks. The current Clan Lord client
will not work with that system, and we don’t have any plans
to produce a new, compatible client. Those of you who wish to
continue playing the game have a few options — none of which,
regrettably, are ideal:
Refrain from upgrading; stick with macOS 10.14 or below.
Run one of those older system versions within a virtual machine or emulator
Switch to the Windows client, either in a VM or on real hardware (although that client has its own geriatric issues as well)
Made a change that may help prevent certain overzealous modem/routers
from prematurely closing communications between client and server.
At some point in life the world’s beauty becomes enough.
You don’t need to photograph, paint or even remember it. It is enough.
— Toni Morrison (1931–2019)
Some Fens have been trained not to juggle their weapons while walking.
To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie –
True Poems flee –
— Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)
Work continues on a new (old?) project.
Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous.
— Bill Moyers (b. 1934)
