I found this transcript of an Infocom Implementors reunion chat (Feb 1992). It doesn't seem to exist anywhere else on the Internet, so I uploaded it:

ifarchive.org/if-archive/infoc

I think it took place on the CompuServe Gamers forum.

Funny looking back on a time that thought that Infocom was ancient history, because everybody had left two or three years ago.

@zarfeblong@mastodon.gamedev.place Oh, now that's some nice "don't step on each others toes" practices there. The single "!" to signal you want to comment, a "GA" to let a person know you're done and they can go ahead and take their turn. Quite an interesting read. Thanks for sharing!

@distractedmosfet A bunch of files that I tarred up from my undergrad account and left in the back of a closet, data-wise, for thirty years.

@zarfeblong Yeah that's definitely one way to make a rare find! Thanks for sharing. Suspect you'll find anything else of (public) interest?

@distractedmosfet Really, nothing else.

I found my original rules doc for Capture the Flag with Stuff but it's the same as what I put on my web site back then.
