Hello, my pen name is Anne Beeche. I was conceived in a fallopian tube and gestated in a uterus.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching film, playing videogames (including nethack), listening to music, drawing, writing, and thinking. Thinking is a pastime I take great pride in. If people could be professional thinkers, I would be the richest human in the world.

Fine, I'll admit it, I'm a greedy bastard. I would love to be rich. Very rich. Rich enough that I would pave my halls in gold if it weren't for the fact that gold is a bit too soft of a metal to serve as flooring.

I have a scholarly interest in many fields of study, most notably biology, psychology, genetics, linguists, culture, religion, history, prehistory and paleontology.


NetHack

I'm a bit new to nethack (I only discovered the game last year) so I haven't ascended or even made it into Gehennom yet, but that doesn't stop me from loving the game so much.

Right now I'm trying to ascend a lawful human Valkyrie who I have named Borghild and whose first pet is typically named Loki. Despite dying with her many times beyond count, I've grown quite fond of this character and playing her doesn't seem to get old.


Specs

I'm running Mac OS 10.6.4 on a Macbook Pro and typically use Firefox for browsing the internet. My nethack version is NetHack 3.4.3 for the Mac OS X Terminal.

I own a PS3, PS2, Wii, and DS. I never play online games.


Terminal Settings

When playing nethack, I like to use a Terminal with the following settings:

  • Courier New 12 pt
  • Use Bold fonts
  • Allow blinking text
  • Display ANSI colors
  • #b26a00 text
  • #fcff00 bold text
  • #ffc300 selection
  • Block cursor
  • Blink cursor
  • #532f00 cursor


  • Active process name
  • #180800 background color
