Then why doesn't he have a multi-grillion $$$ job as some big secretary or sumptin.

I'm skeptical as to whether he did 250. It's pretty muc impossible.

Go to www.the-underdogs.org . Go to the "Inter-active Fiction" section, in the adventure game category. Just keep looking there until something sounds familiar.

Uh, mebbe 10 minutes is exxagerating, and you seem to enjoy making above-average-size-posts (happy now, not "big", but "above-average-size-posts").

And I highly doubt that DFD can do 200 WPM.

It doesn't claim to be anything, it just has the same name. The author prolly thought it a tribute to Poe. So the title does not match the game, it's no reason for you to waste 10's of minutes of your life typing up huge posts :huh: .
Then again, mebbe it is.

Oh yeah. I like Deep Purple because one of their songs, Smoke on Water, is in DDR.

Sheesh. It's just a game, DB.

Yes, I realize the metaphors in FotHoU, that is why I said it is scary. Combined with the surface of the story, it's really something.

Pink Floyd is good, as well. SMASHMOUTH!?!?!?!? Please tell me your joking. Unique, yes. Terrible, also yes. Aerials is good. Bon Jovi is pretty good. I also like Rob Zombie. That's unique. And yeah, Incubus was the first to sound like that but I don't like them in the first place. I like some more,...

Most modern bands suck. They're all way too similar and incohesive lyrics, and when the lyrics actually make sense, I rather wish they hadn't. That said, I like: Smashing Pumpkins Mettalica Stone Sour Trans-Syberian Orchestra The Soggy Bottom Boys (from the movie "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou) Jimmy E...

The Trans-Syberian Orchestra. Not your typical rock music, they do covers of Beethoven with guitar and drums, and other classical music. Only a few of thier songs have lyrics. Probably the best band today.

The Raven is by far his best work and the work that made him posthumously famous (he was the town drunk and a loser who married his niece, whom I assume was named Lenore, judging by most of his poetry). I'd have to say that The Pit and the Pendulum is his second best, followed by The Mask of Red Dea...

As for my "reccomended reading" list... The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I can't believe noone mentioned this yet. For shame. These are the best books ever written, imo, and I've read lotsa lotsa books. Don't Panic. Clockwork, by Philip Pullman. Short, deep and satisfying. Clockwork is only 100...

Lord of the Flies is definitely not for a younger audience. Despite the fact that there is nothing in there that sohuld not be read by kids, there isn't really much in the story that will hold a 10 year old's interest, and -most- lil ones will not "get it".

Yes, it is abandonware. All the old Sierra games are "abandonware", meaning that Sierra no longer sells them. Since abware is not allowed here (I think), I'll PM you a link of where to find it, along with all those other old Sierra games.
