Very tired now, but I got an URL which said that ESR was impressed with our pigeon-project RFC 1149 where I was helping out as best I could. It was fun, albeit a bit cold and long waiting.
As I am tired now, I tend to do silly-things, like writing a patch to the Angband roguelike which automagically names all slime molds so you can have them as pets. Names give off some personality. It probably will never be accepted in the serious mainstream Angband but hopefully a few variants pick it up.
