My first computer was a TI-99/4A with 256 Bytes (yes, bytes) of RAM. So even with a moderate 8GB in my current computer, I still have 33.5 million times as much memory. Dammit, now I really wanna play Hunt the Wumpus.

$ wump
Instructions? (y-n) n

You're in a cave with 20 rooms and 3 tunnels leading from each room.
There are 3 bats and 3 pits scattered throughout the cave, and your
quiver holds 5 custom super anti-evil Wumpus arrows. Good luck.

You are in room 2 of the cave, and have 5 arrows left.
*whoosh* (I feel a draft from some pits).
*sniff* (I can smell the evil Wumpus nearby!)
There are tunnels to rooms 1, 9, and 15.
Move or shoot? (m-s)

Submission + - Western Black Rhino Declared Extinct (richarddawkins.net)

grub writes: Truly tragic. Africa's western black rhino is now officially extinct according the latest review of animals and plants by the world's largest conservation network.

The subspecies of the black rhino — which is classified as "critically endangered" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species — was last seen in western Africa in 2006.

Submission + - PBS "Off Book" Segment on Tabletop RPGs (youtube.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Finally, a mainstream media piece that doesn't treat tabletop gaming as the domain of basement-dwellers. The PBS series "Off Book" this week covers "Dungeons & Dragons and the Influence of Tabletop RPGs." The segment edits together a great montage of games and people gaming, as well as interviews with folks like Ethan Gilsdorf, author of Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks, and Jon Peterson, author of Playing at the World . The coverage won't be news to fans of the game, but if you've passed over D&D for computer RPGs, this will fill you in on what you're missing.
