a new NetHack release!

After a 10+ year hiatus, indeed.

I almost certainly won't be playing, because I have so little time for games at the actual computer [*], but wow, the nostalgia hit when I heard that. There is a rather small but real circle of the Internet in which I am not "the one with the wood cat icon" or "the runner of Con or Bust" or "the Tor.com LotR rereader" or "SteelyKid's mom," but "the one with the Demogorgon, Elbereth, and Monk FAQs."

It's probably for the best, because I literally gave myself RSI ascending an extinctionist in law school, but still. I think I'm going to load all my old ascension posts now (which I still have as text files) onto my tablet and reread them later.

[*] Yes, I know that prior versions have been ported to Android, but I tried them and it's just too weird, I can't remember any of the commands without muscle memory and that makes it work not fun.
