The Simulator...

The Wofford Witch is implemented using Bob Supnik's SIMH computer simulator. The software can emulate a variety of hardware. The Witch uses the PDP11 simulator with Thord Nilson's DZ-11 8 line terminal multiplexor simulation providing the telnet capability.

More information on the SIMH computer simulator can be found at Bob Supnik's site, simh.trailing-edge.com.

An interesting fact is that Bob Supnik ported the original Fortran ADVENTure game to the PDP-11 in 1977, while he was a Digital Equipment Corporation employee. Bob worked at DEC for over 20 years.

The WITCH has been brought back to life for you by Kevin, the original wizard.
