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.
