I very specifically did not look to see if anyone has ported Doom to the Apple ][. I don't want to know if they have, and I don't want to know if they haven't. I'm blissfully ignorant about the whole thing. But if anyone can do it, Desmond can.


Desmond: I did it! I cracked the problem!
Owen: Are you talking about multiuser authentication? Desmond: No.
Owen: Hash table collisions?
Desmond: No.

Owen: Then what--
Desmond: I ported "Doom" to it!

Owen takes this in.

Now they're playing together.
Desmond: What about that other stuff?
Owen: What other stuff?
