As always, new and different game ideas percolate through my brain. @kensanata post about wikis pulled some thoughts about similarities between MUDs and wikis.

I've learned that explanations should be earned, not given freely. And sometimes the best way to deal with awkward silence is to let it roll over into comfortable silence.
Elite Dangerous is the most realistic sandbox game ever.

The C Standard Does Not Protect You
"...the behavior of C’s governing body is very clear. We will not introduce warnings into your old code, even if that old code could be doing something dangerous.
