IF fan since I received a copy of Zork II as a gift in 1983 to go with my brand-new floppy drive. Author of "Zax" Z-Machine circa 1997, and have been an on-and-off member of the newsgroups and IF community in general since the mid-90s. Greatly enjoying the "new" IF and always looking for new games to play.
