Harriet Maria Smith

imageTime for my father’s father’s mother. Again I don’t know all that much about her, but there is a picture. I’m pretty sure that spot on her face is just a problem with the photograph, not something that was really there. :-)

She was born in South Carolina, died in Texas. Married William Ramseur Minter and had four kids including my Grandfather. And that is about all I know unfortunately. Hopefully I’ll be able to find some more info, possibly from relatives who actually knew her (she died in 1964). But that is all I have at the moment really.

A Lovely Game of Nethack

A couple weeks ago I downloaded Nethack for old times sake. I played one game then but don’t remember much. I just played a game a few minutes ago. Here is the entire transcript:

Hello Abulsme, welcome to NetHack!
You are a chaotic female orcish Wizard.

You displaced your kitten.
m – a puce potion.
The kitten falls into a pit!
The kitten hisses!
You frightened the kitten!
You fall into a pit!
You are still in a pit.
The kitten bites!
The kitten bites!
You die…

Goodbye Abulsme the Wizard…
You died in The Dungeons of Doom
on dungeon level 1 with 0 points,
and 0 pieces of gold, after 7 moves.
You were level 1 with a maximum of
11 hit points when you died.

Ah, good times.
