Daylight Savings Time always heralds a week or two of wailing and gnashing of teeth, mostly about being tired at odd hours and the consequences that come with it. One consequence of the change I discovered this year, which I hadn't noticed before, is the abrupt change in temperature. Specifically, I'm effectively commuting an hour later at night than previously, which means it's one hour's worth of nighttime colder.

1993 was a great year for adventure/puzzle games. In one corner we had Return to Zork, the latest entry in a long and well-respected franchise. Then there was Myst, whose graphics were insanely impressive for the time (and still gorgeous by any metric). In the last corner was The 7th Guest, a pioneer in the use of full-motion video.

Greetings and salutations. I invite you to read, and invite myself to write.
