This is the home of Intergalactic Enterprises. Nothing here is for sale and the links work, I hope.

To put it another way, Intergalactic Enterprises does nothing, but tries to do it well.

I am Wastrel, and this site is in part things that I have written.

There is an alternate connection using the command `ssh gameplayer@iWastrel.com` for playing games on your terminal. There you can play a version of Space Invaders or Pacman, test your knowledge of Shakespeare, US capitals or famous murderers, or play the best Hangman game on the internet, which selects at random from a list of more than 190,000 English words. There are also several dungeon, alternate-reality or puzzle games. Some of them are multiplayer.

The password for gameplayer is "playgames". You must create an account. Remember your personal login and password. If you forget, the only way to fix it is to create another account and leave me a message so I can get you set up again. On the other hand, you can have as many accounts as you want and stay logged in as long as you want.

If you don't know about ssh: this is a command on your linux or Mac terminal. If you use Windows, then use the Putty application.

Gripes, comments, flames, questions, suggestions etc. may be submitted by selecting the comment item on the gameplayer menu.
