Hi Kelby and Carrie,
Oh, I loved Adventure, Zork and all those other games.  I spent hours
playing Enchanter, Sorcerer and the other Infocom treats.  
I still remember xyzzy, and the phrase twisty little passages, all alike,
still crops up in my dialogue occasionally.
If you will wait a few days, I will buy this book and send it to Carrie.
Does that work for everyone

Hey, I'd like to see that book too.  Kelby, did you play Advent in the 70s
like I did?  The simplest maze in Advent used the phrase 'twisty little
passages' repeatedly.  Fun game!  I still have my map from Advent after all
these years.  Nostalgia time!

One book that I've been wanting for a while is obscure to most 
people who aren't involved in this.  It is called Twisty Little 
Passages, by Nick Montfort.  It is a history of the growth and 
progress of Interactive Text games, which I tend to like very 
much.  I don't know if this would be interesting to any of you, 
but I would most certainly validate this one.

Q: What is the sound of one hand clapping?

A: It is the universe exploding.

"It is not what we see that determines who we are.  It is how we 
choose to see it."

"Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is 
exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens."

Psalm 148:13

"Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your 
presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my 
bed in the depths, you are there.  If I rise on the wings of the 
dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your 
hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast."

Psalm 139:7-10
