Does anybody remember when GTalk first came out with that whole deal about "Play.Wumpus.Game" written using numbers for the corresponding letters? And there were reports everywhere off being able to play the game by adding some weird email address to your buddies. What was with that? I never saw any screenshots ever.

It was not a game with graphics and that. I was a bot which allowed you to play the Hunt the Wumpus game (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunt_the ...) sending commands like, but not exactle, "walk room 3" and things like that...

Not so funny if you ask me :)
