I managed to recover MagicBane and the Orb of Fate with
relative ease. Then I went and blew up my back of holding
with all the nice items in it, after a nasty demon decided
to curse it. I got it back to blessed status with only a
handful of items lost, then I put the wrong wand in the bag,
and BOOM! I lost all the candles I had found thusfar in the
game, so now I have to bide my time and get some more. I
just got a wand of polymorph, tho, so I may be able to
Looking at the diaries, it seems that the current game of
nethack has now spanned three months. It's definately the
longest I've ever had....
I've also got the whole moving thing mostly worked out.
I found out that the cable company doesn't set up any sort
of appointment until you've moved in, if you only want
bandwidth, and don't care for the television. Since I don't
have a TV (and was looking forward to not having one), I
don't really want the cable television. ADSL in the same
area costs more for about the same or slightly less, and you
have to fight for it on the waiting list. :(
So now I have everything ready for the big move, except
for the bandwidth, which I've always said is the first thing
to get sorted before moving. Oh well.
Does any other place out there have "running red light"
cameras? These wonderful things take your picture if you
are in the intersection when the light turns red. On a
smoky Halloween night when it is hard enough to see in front
of you, I feel that hitting the gas on the yellow light, and
making it through the intersection, is a much better choice
than hitting the brakes and risking the person behind you
slamming into the back of you. I watched the camera flash
in the rear view as I was going up the hill past the
intersection, so maybe it is that it took a picture of
nothing. If I end up getting a picture of my car, this is
one I'll fight.
Why can't they get some decent code to factor things in
like visibility? It doesn't seem like it would be that hard
to do, really.
