Thanks for reading!

Didn't know that my page load counter could do this trick. It seems that I have some 250-300 frequent readers and a sligthly bigger bunch that drops by. I assume that a whole lot of them are web crawlers and such but it was a big and nice surprise.

To see that so many are interested in this module is a huge motivator when everything about it sometimes seems slow and I feel that it's not good enough. That and the comments I recieve is so very much appreciated. It helps me keep going, especially today when the snow crushed the feeling of spring we had for a week now, and my toolset crashed four times in one hour.

So, as always, thanks for reading!

Very cool. I'm not at all surprised you have so many regular readers. Zork is going to attract attention on it's own. The custom content is going to attract even more. And the post are always very interesting... intresting yet a few more.

Keep the good stuff coming my friend.

I'm a bit of a lurker but I'm really excited by your module.

The screenshots look amazing and rival both the oc and expansion pack for quality.

Well anyway I had better get back to lurking.

Are you counting RSS hits?

Zork is for dorks only :) But it's a big world so that could be sort of a dork-o-meter :)))

Seriously, it's great to bring up an interest for this old game, even if it's just a little bit. Many people have some relation to it even if I've found that very has finished it without the walkthrough. This has become not only a remake but my own version, which is both good and a tiny bit scary. I can't just say "I'm the interpretor. It's what it is written in the Book".

It's great to have the support from the readers.

Your comment was appreciated Wolvie! Safe lurking!

Nope, RSS doesn't count but clicking a link in your feed does of course. Direct hits on a post and not on the main page doesn't count either. If they did I just my own RSS receiver and Xbox should have generated about 15000 hit from myself only :)

I too am Lurking - Gruelike - in the background! Waiting (im)patiently for the Zork module. No pressure - but I'm currently playing the original Zork I text adventure now. Just finished mapping that %&*$ing maze to the west of the Troll Room. :)

Got to dash ... someone's lamp just burnt out! ;)
