Never let a hacker get bored.

So, I love writing, but the fact is, I like to program. I’m not happy if I’m not programming a little.

So I decided to write a mud. You know, as a little hobby. To do this, I’m designing a new programming language and building a program to compile it, interpret it, and let people access a system running it. That’s all. Just a handful of the foundational problems in computer science and programming languages – but at least they’re well-studied problems.

It’ll be a lot of fun, I expect.

In the process, I found a bug that’s been in an old library I wrote for at least five years, maybe longer, and I can’t imagine how I ever missed it before, or how I could have written the code in the first place. Argh.
