Sunday morning, 0215.
Happy birthday to me; I'm now 19. I'm going out to eat
later with my parents, and they're getting me much needed
tools for my birthday (with which I'll work on my computer
since my CD-ROM drive just died.
I just beat Diablo (aka Burgandy Godzilla) with the help of
He dominated through most of hell, but when all the seals
(otters, ;-) ) were broken, the Lord of Terror was much too
powerful for his summoned creatures. He wiped them all out
with a single fire nova. All I could do was have x-virge
(a necro) cast area curses while I took on the big red dog
in melee. After only one town trip, Diablo was banished and
x-virge and I were both sirs.
The secret cow level was another matter.
We entered the red portal only to find about 200 bovine
minions and some champions walking erect and carrying
polearms. They hurt us very badly, and the sounds of the
programmers saying "moo" in various ways was too funny to
bear. I won't go back there until I get Fist of the Heavens
and befriend a very powerful sorceress.
Anyway, back to my search for a good open project. I have
pretty much decided on xtraceroute.
I hear it needs work badly, and it hasn't been maintained in
over a year. I guess I'll email Mr. Augustsson later to get
"It appears your computer uses a 286 or lower CPU.
