So... you haven't tried 'Two Lumps' yet?

Two Lumps = cool!! 

Now your guess: 'Grasshopper!' ;)

Well, it isn't as obvious as 'Caine' or 'Kung Fu'.

One clue: What was Caine, where did he come from? (i think that was one clue?)

Guessing the names of hidden rooms is a *classic* Citadel game from decades past. :)

There are a couple of rooms here that are hidden only because they're really just RSS feeds and I didn't want to clutter the default room list with syndicated content. Two Lumps is one of them.

More fun tidbits of knowledge:

* Once you access a hidden room for the first time, it isn't hidden anymore.
It will show up in your room list. This is true for both text and web clients.

* You can also create a hidden room that requires a password to gain access.
This feature is almost never used, because it's easier to create an invitation-only room and give room-admin rights to someone.

I have known about hidden rooms I don't think I bothered to guess the names.

Long ago, when I ran a Citadel board in Japan, I had some elaborate games made from guess-name rooms, where the next room's clue was hidden in a room you had to guess, in a chain of guess-names that went on for a while. I never tried that here, perhaps because I'm not as enchanted by that kind of thing as I used to be.

I do remember lots of those type of games on Citadel.

There are two "classic" hidden rooms that traditionally appeared on "every" Citadel.

Hint #1: they are names that are amusing if they appear after the words "go to" (as in the .Goto command)

Hint #2: Uncensored only has one of these two rooms.

There is a few things about Citadel I don't remember. Maybe I should start talking to the old sysop again, like
I promissed to do and have him boot it up.
I remember a story room where a user wrote a paragraph and the next user had to continue the story by writing
another paragraph. I remember a word association room.

It was fun when he booted up his old Kaypro two 5¼ floppy drive BBS he ran before he ran citadel. CP/M based.

Back in NJ in the mid 1980s Brian Riley ran Morningstar Keep Citadel on a CP/M machine - with a (then) unheard of beast called a 20 meg hard drive. The hard drive in question was a stand-alone contraption in and of itself larger than a full-size PC desktop case (the old type) and made such a racket that you'd find it painful to be in the same room with it. No joke.

It was, at the time, the only Citadel running in New Jersey.

That was soon to change... <evil grin>

Back in those days what the hell would you do with a 20 meg hard drive?

I once heard an answer to that question: "It's so big you can back it up to itself."

(Which works great until someone lets the magic smoke out.)

A bowl full of flowers? Are they petunias?
