I recently got addicted to {net}hack and rogue because they are so completely silly and senseless. I like that a lot about games. In addition I started to write my own Jump'n'Run for 80x25 Textmode. Scrolling and jumping are due for tonight. Features a fearless 3x3 man composed entirely of text characters, not that I can actually do ASCII Art, but I enjoy, so who would object. ;-) And certainly the famous "Amulet of Yendor" will come along the way. That's pretty much all. Oh, did I mention that I am probably going to spend as much as it will cost to buy all things Babylon 5 when released on DVD? No? Ok, now you know.

Yesterday I got the second part of my home network running, the 10mbit BNC ring for old computers, which include my newly acquired VAXstation 3100m76 running OpenVMS 7.2. Although it is not a UNIX-like system working with it is still kinda fun and I hope to learn something about "what many people think is the finest operating systems around". ;-)
