I have rediscovered the joys of nethack thanks to nethack-el, a package that allows me to play that insanely addictive RPG from within Emacs buffers. I hear there are even Dvorak bindings for it, which is a very good thing.
I had a wimpy wizard who quite luckily and through no fault of her own acquired a master mind flayer as a pet (tame kitten discovered a polymorph trap). Did Really Well until I died due to some impatient attacks on a queen bee. And it was going so well... <sniff>
Probably shouldn't play until I can afford several seconds per move.
Having Elbereth on a keyboard macro is really, really good.
