The fact that you are arguing with yourself is far more interesting.

OK, so, maybe the people who say that Free Software is, like, 30-year-old technology kinda have a point. Because this GNURobots game is, like, real real real real low tech. And unless you're a total HACK-crazed maniac, it's gonna bore you to tears.

But, that said, if you ARE a total hakisto, then GNURobots is gonna take up some of your time.

See, it's ESSENTIALLY that 2nd-year comp sci project that you did so poorly on because you spent most of the week doing whippets in the kitchen of your friend's co-op with girls with long greasy hair instead of programming. Remember that? Probably not much. But GNURobots is like that "Hunt the Wumpus" deal -- you have to create a program that will get your evil little doppelganger through a series of obstacle to the GOAL.

Oh, and you have to write all the program in GUILE, the crazed FSF answer to Perl, TCL, and Python (woo-hoo! Late 80s technology!). So, there's another little hump to get over.

I wish you luck with your little robot. I've already got mine trained to post on Usenet and to keep an eye on utility stocks (tech stocks are hard!).

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
