      Yes!
      Infocom text adventures were the best!
      And the parser was really good!

      This photo actually is of Zork even before the Infocom company made Zork a business. This was the original "freeware" or maybe even "open source" Zork (although those terms as such were unknown at that time, of course) on the PDP-10. (In my case, a DECSystem-20 running TOPS-20 at the Helsinki University of Technology).
