The Postcard Quest

Postcards ADOM is available for free. Nonetheless I ask for one thing. If you are enjoying ADOM and are gaining hours of fun out of playing it, please "pay" me by sending a postcard from whereever you live to the following address:

Thomas Biskup
Zu den Tannen 5
58456 Witten

I have spent many hours (literally thousands by now) to work on ADOM and never have requested anything from it. Since I collect postcards this is a very neat way of saying "Thank you!" that I'd appreciate very much. It's a lot of fun to come home after a long day of work and to see another three of four postcards from far-away countries :-)

In the next weeks I'm going to post some statistics about the postcards I got so far (and some scans of the most beautiful ones). So far it seems that the finnish people are by far the most enthusiastic postcard writers (thanks, folks!) with the polish people recently winning a lot of ground. Some of the most original postcards I got from the USA and New Zealand. Areas noticably lacking so far are South America (at most two postcards) and the Near East and Far East. Australia also is a bit thin. EMails from Russia have increased recently, but postcards are sparse from there two. Africa also is a bit quiet. A postcard from Antarctica would be the greatest thing :-) Statistics to follow soon...

By the way: some Millennium postcards from exotic countries are very welcome (*wink*)!

The Design of Everyday Things Thomas Biskup recommends: The Design of Everyday Things
"I really believe that most software engineers think too little about the usability of their products. This book provides indepth thoughts on how to design usable items (not necessarily software) and how not to design usable tools. Many issues are adressed and the author shows a profound knowledge of the topics at hand (which is to be expected since he is teaching design for... many years). His writing is concise, yet humourous, which is a definite plus in my opinion. Every software engineer worth his money should be required to read this book! "

More details about this item can be found here: United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany.

In Association with Amazon Please support this website by going to Amazon through one of the links on this website (if you want to shop at Amazon at all that is ;-). It doesn't cost you any surcharge, but provides me with ADOM-related income. Thanks!
