    No plan, read about that route in a book once, sounded cool but not sure if I'll get there. Running on roads is getting less and less appealing ;)

    Depends on the context, but for running I go between some Hoka One One Torrent 2s and some (no longer made, boo) New Balance Minimus MT10, and Xero Mesa Trail. I'll wear the Torrents around for walking, though if it's colder out or rainy and I'm walking then I'll wear some Keen Siskiyou (which are relatively waterproof). Also various sandals and/or birkenstocks in the summer.

    An apartment, pretty good sized! Furnishings I mostly leave up to Allison. She does most of the cooking and I do most of the dishes, aside from when my wrist is broken which has shifted the balance a bit for a while. At the moment we don't have many doors (it's a big open space), though that will be changing soon.

Question: what made you go outside more, exercise more, compared to your 20's? (got this info from an earlier question, not paparazzis)

    Being in NYC and embracing not having a car was a good start, and starting bicycling helped! I had I injured myself a few times as a teenager in such a way that I thought I couldn't do things like run, took some encouragement from a mentor to get myslef running, and once I started running and everything more-or-less worked, it went from there.
Question: Where's the place to ask the REAPER devs (and actually get an answer) what their thoughts are about REAPER getting a MIDI clip launcher for live performance ike Bitwig or Ableton have because that's the only thing REAPER lacks in kind of live performance and composition, so it would be a very important feature and not something to be thrown under the rock and roll bus?

    Not here but check out playtime2. As far as asking things like that -- you can ask on the forum, but a lack of an answer there is usually an answer in itself.
Question: hey jf- am feeling a temporary solution to balance of finacial resources-- cap individual/ private earnings @ no greater than 10mill... coporations / businesses capped @100 mill... all currency overflows go back into national community funds (shared equally) what you think about this proposal? feasible? WHO needs more?

    I think that progressive taxes more effective and reasonable than hard caps, a hard cap creates strange incentive structures whereas a 90% maximum tax rate at least still can motivate. And it would be imperative to close tons of loopholes. And you need to have the ability for companies to manage money for big investments. But I agree in principle! The implementation is not easy.

Question: Could you give a pointer what to look for in order to fetch from reaper-screensets.ini IDs of FX windows currently stored in a screenset and visible? Is this data accessible without too much decoding?
Asked by Buy One (95.135.211.x) on April 12 2023, 8:12pm
Reply on April 14 2023, 4:16pm:
    poslistX_id is fx#{guid-string} etc. postlistX_data has a hex-encoded string best read with GetPrivateProfileStruct() (the lat byte is a checksum). First 4 bytes is a LE integer flags, 1 set means "visible", 2 set means docked. Second byte is docker ID if nonzero. Next 16 bytes are LE integers of window coordinates (left/top/right/bottom).

    There are no doubt ups and downs, but I think the trend is that it's getting better, probably, but of course there's more and more visibility of the bad things.

    Embarrassingly boring — set out on a run with the first stop taking a bag of compost to the bin in the park, crossing a cobblestone street, wasn’t paying attention and tripped. Totally avoidable and stupid.

    Hell if I know. A social network where you upload geolocated and timestamped images, and also gpx files, and it matches you by space and time (also you could see pictures you might be in)
