I started playing with this Telehack thing last night after reading an interview with the creator. It's sort of like a text game that simulates the state of computer networks in the late 80's early 90's and reminds me a great deal of Digital which I played through a while ago.

The best part of telehack to me is that you can connect to it right on the telnet port, and then set a variable to simulate modem speeds from the era. Watching text crawl by at 300 baud was a bit much for me, but I captured a video of a hacking at 2400 baud which wasn't too bad.
