I believe we shall come to care about people less and less. The more people one knows the easier it becomes to replace them. It's one of the curses of London.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Most times, your blessings are also your curses. And for me, I have this ability to express myself so clearly with pen and paper, but when it comes to expressing myself verbally, I put up a big wall.
I hold that the beginning of modern Irish drama was in the winter of 1898, at a school feast at Coole, when Douglas Hyde and Miss Norma Borthwick acted in Irish in a Punch and Judy show; and the delighted children went back to tell their parents what grand curses 'An Craoibhin' had put on the baby and the policeman.

At the end of April I archived 'Curses' and Inform, and announced them on the newsgroups.
The time has mainly gone on getting Inform into a decent shape for public use. I suppose the plot of 'Curses' makes a sequel conceivable when compared with, say, the plot of 'Hamlet' but none is planned.
Our curses on them that boil the eggs too hard! What use is an egg that is hard to any person on earth?
