And my DGD doc web site was called "insanely useful" on the mailing list the other day, and the Skotos guy mailed me to update my games list. Not that it means anything to the world at large, but it means people are actually using the stuff I write, at least the documentation, and paying attention. Pretty damn cool.
Now I'll just churn on the MUDLib code for awhile, get it usable to other programmers, and I'll be the equivalent of published (for all you aspiring writers out there).
Urgh. Write write write. Grind grind grind. But people are paying attention, people are gonna use my stuff, and that makes all the difference.
