Since my last post, I got Cygwin/X11R6 running on my MS-Windows box. That's geeky. The next thing I did after that was to download and build XTank, a game that I used to play in college. I don't know if it got modified after 1988 - the multitasking support is a little scary in the distribution that I have. And that sentence is even geekier.
Just the same, something about this game really sends me back.
