This Friday Ido's CryptRover goes live on Cymon's Games and I think the 7DRL version of the code is excellent. Mind you, it's in C, not C++, but many 7DRL are an excellent place to start. Most are poorly commented, but are simple enough that you don't feel overwhelmed.

So I see a post, "They who are to busy" or something on the General board and think I have something to add to this discussion. But when I hit reply I'm told, "This post is dead. Are you sure you want to revive it?" or something. Really? Wow.\

Don't get me wrong, I'm registered on my share of slow boards and I hate the boards that move so fast it's a full time job to keep up with them. But I thought this board would be a bit more towards the middle. I mean, you just had an international conference. (By the way, does BIRDC mean anything in any language? Bird-C to me, sounds like some flighty programming language, nothing to do with roguelikes.)

We should be grateful the power of God cannot be represented into a computer simulation :)
Obviously you never played Airship 2600.

Your question is one that was answered over 150 years ago by Henry Thoreau. You should read Walden, his book about his 2 years living on Walden Pond.

Personally it's a goal of mine to one day live fully self sufficient and have everything I want and need, and then to decide what to hook up with the knowledge that it's my choice what gets picked.. The plan involves alternate power sources and land to grow food on, both of which will require me becoming independently wealthy. Should happen any day now.
