Don’t Panic

I’m a big fan of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series. They have an intelligent wit which I’ve only otherwise encountered in the writings of Mark Twain. The silliness is saying something, something profound. They are, in fact, my filler books, that which I read whenever I don’t want to think about what I’m reading, or don’t have anything else lined up for the moment, or simply want a diversion from more intentional literature.

Back in the early days of home computing the author, Douglas Adams, was quite involved in spreading the charms of his books in diverse ways. One of those early ventures was a text based adventure based loosely on the books. Now, some enterprising chaps have gone and added some visuals. Go ahead, take some time off whatever you are doing, and revisit the gaming marvels of the mid-eighties.

If’n you get past the bulldozer, let me know… I’m having a bit of trouble there.
