the unleavened part 2
have you actually coded?
infamous Algernon the Mole. :) There is most of an area that has been sitting
in my work room gathering dust for about six years. The bulk of what I've done,
though, has been maintenance: fixing bugs, adding features, updating old code.
Currently at the top of my to-do list (apart from finishing my area—ahem)
are overhauling the mail system and how doors work.
is your role on Elephant MUD now?
Wizard, Guild Wiz for the Warmages and Core Programmer. What
that means, I s'pose, is that I'm the only senior Wiz on during
the day most of the time, so I try to keep an eye on things
and make sure everything is running smoothly; that I look after
the Warmages by tinkering with their spells and the Tower (sometimes
they're even better off after I've finished); and that I help
Larnen maintain and improve the infrastructure of the MUD.
Erm, 'cause I'm a power-crazed loon who likes blowing things up?
do you see your role in Elephant MUD in another 9 years?
What a frightening
thought. :) Eighteen years? Doesn't bear thinking about. You don't think I actually
enjoy it, do you? :)
much time each week would you say you spend on Elephant MUD?
but usually between forty and fifty hours a week (mostly from work), at a guess.
is your fondest Elephant MUD memory?
the first time I logged on, actually. Larnen had said that if I wanted to be
a Wizard, I'd have to do it properly and learn how to programme (I was a Classics
undergraduate at the time and had hardly ever so much as looked at a computer),
so rather than make me a Wiz straightaway, he created a rank below Apprentice
for me, called Scholar, so I could see whether I wanted to do it. :)
