I’ve been asked to post occasional tips about free software. Not some particular type, but merely things I know of that might perhaps be of interest to others. So, today I will mention Hearse. This is a small add-on program for NetHack, one of the most well known and expansive Roguelike games. Ordinarily, in the game you may encounter graves and ghosts of earlier players, but only those who played on the same host. Hearse adds a service for exchanging the “bones” data, meaning you can enjoy this small bit of interaction with your friends even though you play on separate machines. Enjoy!
