In some sense, you were playing a meta-game of hacking the program.
Maybe it was even more fun than playing the game! I wonder if there is
some int-fic game that has such an element on purpose?
Speaking of Zork wizards, we have this list:
WINNER: CAME XUNAME,[SIXBIT /TAA/]
CAMN XUNAME,[SIXBIT /MARC/]
CAME XUNAME,[SIXBIT /PDL/]
CAMN XUNAME,[SIXBIT /SEC/]
CAME XUNAME,[SIXBIT /BKD/]
CAMN XUNAME,[SIXBIT /ELBOW/]
It's the usual suspects, except ELBOW. I figured out who went by that
name (his initials were actually ARM) and asked why he's in the list,
but he didn't remember.
