If you’d like to load sumo wrestling, or any other of hundreds of games, onto your calculator, ticalc.org is the place to go. They’re pretty damn cool. For example, here’s the full animated demo of Sumo Wrestling:
Just don’t play in English class. I know at least one of you has a teacher who’ll remember me if you say where you got the idea.
Lots of computer humor (which you might have to be a bit of a geek to understand).
Oh, and adult languages/situations/images – not work safe. Funny, though.
I’m thinking of making a category just for links. Opinions? comment on the forum.
So Nighthawk was looking for a natural language interpreter when he came across a site with interactive fiction. Those of you who can actually remember the eighties might know “interactive fiction” better as “text adventure games”, though many of the “games” on this site aren’t really games so much as interactive stories. We went through 9:05 and through Photopia — they’re both excellent, you should try them. But you have to run/install stuff to get them to work, so you probably won’t be able to check these out at work.
