About Darnoc

I live in
 
 United States, Silicon Valley
About me
Autobiography. With bragging. I may add/write more later.

Retired information/computer scientist and mathematician. I'm into all science, but my love of gaming intersects with my love of probability, game theory, formal logic, psychology, simulation techniques...

I was gaming early. With adult assistance, I learned monopoly pre-school. An only child, I obsessed over playing multiple players by myself, tallying times-sent-to-jail and stuff. In 4th or 5th grade I invented and was obsessively maintaining an ELO-equivalent on baseball teams. By successive hand-approximation on paper. Seriously.

As an adult I wrote computer games as a hobby. Or on IBM-time as approved skunkworks - sales engineers liked to slip Snake or Star Trek to customers. Didn't give anyone Othello - it beat everyone but took a whole mainframe to run it. Best not talk about the failed chess and backgammon AIs. My Mastermind game could school most anyone, and offered any number of colors, etc. Designed and prototyped a Python (1.3!) multi-game server during a sabbatical from Apple. Something like BGA here might use, but the internet wasn't ready for it in 1996. Nor was upper management interested.

Took advantage of NYC backgammon street hustlers in '85. (In Texas State tournaments I did ok - but they were making me play with the experts.)

In the game of Diplomacy ... lol, I might go on bragging, techie boomers do that.
