my thoughts exactly.  definitely free.  i was thinking of something,
perhaps, ncurses based.

my idea was a bit complicated though.  i was thinking it would be neat
to build a "network" on top of the internet where people can expand the
game by running their own servers.  something like what gnutella does
for file sharing.  i started playing with SDL-net, but realized that the
task was too huge for me.

two words: bill kendrick.

but seriously, as far as music goes, i'd be just as happy using
mp3blaster and playing my own music while trying to crack the ice of
someone's piece of the net.  :)


The mathematics [of physics] has become ever more abstract, rather than more
complicated.  The mind of God appears to be abstract but not complicated.
He also appears to like group theory.  --  Tony Zee's `Fearful Symmetry'
