I wasn't sure that he had come forth. But looking at more recent
versions of DUNGEON, he do have his name in there, so I guess it's okay
to say that it was Bob Supnik.
I still kindof like that early request for anonymity, though. :-)
He really was mad to decide to implement this stuff in FORTRAN. Really
good work by him to pull it off...
