You don't sound so grumpy today--must be this festive time of year--with all it's current shortcomings notwithstanding.
In any case, I remember talking to Jim Kitchen. I called him at his suburban Cleveland Ohio home after I download his DOS program that he mysteriously entitled 'a nifty little3 DOS program.' When you ran it You got a prompt saying something like: 'This program will reformat your entire hard drive.' No matter what you replied yes or no, it replied with: 'reformatting in progress, 10% 20% 50%' and so on. At the end of the process. It said 'task complete.' and then was silent. I had to do a double take and run some DOS commands just to make sure the program really didn't
reformat my hard drive. It was at that point that I called him and when he answered, I laughingly said: 'Jim Kitchen, you have too much time on your hands. That is a pretty bizarre trick with that nifty little DOS program.' He burst out laughing and said: 'But do you like my games?' I said oh yes.' He said, well then I guess you have to take the good with the bad then.' And he laughed and I laughed and we discussed other aspects of the games he created. He was sure a character--in a humorous and affectionate way wasn't he?
