I wish I had IF accomplishments. Like most people wandering through the fifth decade of their life, I got my start on Tandy 1000 Infocom games; they were the highlight of every birthday and Hannukah. I ran a BBS, I learned Inform and TADS and Adrift . . and BASIC, and VBasic, and JAVA, and HTML/XML, and SQL. I built a programming life with fantasies of game-authorship. But then I went to medical school and life moved on. I'm a big lover of IF Comp entries, and I worship Emily Short (I think it's not possible to NOT worship her). Play and write on, my friends. I will always be in your audience.
