I received a weekly email from O'Reilly with short blurbs about new content on their site including a link to a story about an Old School unix adventure game... which reminded my of the Infocom "interactive fiction" games I used to play on my Commodore 64.
A quick google search later and I've found a site about interactive fiction games for the Palm platform, including winning entries from the annual interactive fiction competition. Another google search found a site for downloading actual Infocom game files, along with links to executables for playing these games on Win32, java, linux, and palm platforms. (Disclaimer: I'm not sure of the legal status of these games.)
This is certainly more than I needed to know. I don't have much free time as it is.

It seems that during last month's walkout by Democrats in the Texas legislature, the Republicans talked to some of their friends in Washington and got some help tracking down the Democrats from federal agencies including the Dept. of Homeland Security, the FAA, and the FBI. Didn't John Ashcroft assure us that the extended investigative powers would never be used against private citizens?
