/dev/null/nethack 2008 (and 2007 bragging)

The /dev/null/nethack tournament started last night at midnight, Pacific Time. I plan to compete, with the knowledge that I may need to take it easy/stop for the sake of my arms.

Last year I picked up a Dilithium Star and the Grue Challenge Trophy. My goals for this year are to get the new Challenge Trophy and at least a Birdie. I may also go after the Pac-Man Challenge, which I wasn't able to complete last year, but I think I'll probably skip the KoL Challenge in favor of playing nethack. Since I completed it last year, I think I'm going to decline the Grue Challenge this year.

The tournament is a lot of fun, and I encourage anybody who enjoys nethack to give it a try. The star awards exist to provide goals even for fairly new players.
