Recognition is something I've noticed as a nearly ubiquitous motivation
among programmers, especially game programmers and shareware developers.
Many of them would rather have fame than money. Of course, none of them
would kick cash out of bed, either, but what good is money if no one knows
you have it?

Woohoo! :)

Email links are fine, and my current project is a port of Garth Bigelow's
early 90's BBS door game Ultimate Universe under exclusive license.
