    Boy does that bring back memories. We had to use FORTRAN for our PDP 11/45, but I got a chance to play with an early version of LISP on an account with MIT through this thing called ARPANET. It was on something that was called Zork back in the very early 80’s.

    That came up in the strip on June 11th- you can check back. Unfortunately, John mistyped the title of the TV show mentioned, and- since I never watched it- I lettered it even more wrong.

    I never thought of RPG as a language, only as the world’s most elaborate utility program.
