EMACS is a text editor written by Richard Stallman (rms) as the first part of the GNU project. For many years there was a text file in with the distribution with several recipes for cookies. Unfortunately it was removed in 2014 so it is now apocryphal and I include it here. The file itself is here: http://www.soronlin.org.uk/local--files/emacs-cookies/Emacs%20COOKIES.txt

But I will also expound on the first and original recipe in the file which I find makes fantastic cookies and requires a great amount of fun since it makes so many. You need a huge bowl, or even two, and you need to have a production-line process to cook them, which is a great caper. Unlike lesser recipes, you won't eat them all in the first evening either.

Katie’s journal, October 1986

The call through our crystals came when Victoria and I were in class. We both did the same thing, our hands shot up, and we said we needed to go to the toilet. Victoria was quick enough to change it to ‘I need to take Katie to the toilet’, which is kind of weird, but we got out anyway. It was Harryn who had called us, and as we hurried to the groundskeeper’s cottage Victoria realised we had a bit of a wait on our hands, so we could have stayed in class. It would be a while before Dave and Harmony would be back at the school.

Game Description

Title:A Dream of Adventure
Players: 6
Mode: Tabletop

Life at the Carlos Cory School for Gifted Orphans is not a bed of roses; the academic regimen is punishing and the discipline is worse, but it never used to be boring. Few other schools even have a stable-block, and none of them have a Spectrum SPV parked in it, even if it is a little worse for wear. And yet with the Eternal Society gone to Amber with Corwin, the school and everyone it protects is safe. Maybe one day Chaos or Amber might look your way but right now they are content to fight each other. It all seems very quiet after the last few years. So an unexpected request brings a welcome chance to break the monotony and to meet someone new.

Game Description

Title:A Black Road Adventure
Players: 6
Mode: Tabletop

Life at the Carlos Cory School for Gifted Orphans is not a bed of roses; the academic regimen is punishing and the discipline is worse, but never let it be said that life is boring. Few other schools even have a stable-block, and none of them have a Spectrum SPV parked in it, even if it is a little worse for wear.

With the Eternal Society gone, the school and everyone it protects is safe for now, but for how long? Corwin is marching on Amber and the Black Road that you defeated a few years ago on Earth is nevertheless spreading through shadow. War is coming and Earth will not be spared. This is a brief respite, a regrouping with milk and cookies, before the battle begins and it will be a shooting war, with blood and bullets, magic and exploding bodies. But where will you stand? With Florimel of Amber, who protected you all these years? With Dara of Chaos, who you swore to aid? Could Earth stand without supporting one side or the other? How many sides are there, anyway?

I'm having a go at NaNoWriMo this year. The idea is to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. In honour of this vast undertaking, here is a character questionnaire I made a while ago.
