Hitchhiker's Guide via AIM

Comments (2) | Views (404)

Wired just posted an article about a web programmer, Andy Baio, who has created an AIM bot which allows you to play the classic Infocom text adventures: Deadline, Hitchhiker's Guide, Leather Goddesses, Lurking Horror, Planetfall, Shade, Wishbringer, Zork1, Zork2, and Zork3. Check out his weblog which explains how to play.

There may be rough road ahead since the story has now been slashdotted and AOL imposes a limit to the number of messages any one account can send out. Still, it would be cool if his project can withstand all the attention and fame it's getting to last a while.

I never realized you could write in English. Most of my past friends are not as literate as you. If you have the time please respond to this note. I would love to hear from both of you.
