Source code of a work of IF older than ADVENT recovered

Just wanted to share what I thought was an exciting bit of IF-archeology conducted by "Ant" of Retroactive Fiction.  The author claims to have the source-code for a game called Wander, that's supposed to predate Crowther and Woods' ADVENT.

The story, which is more complex than my summary does justice, is told nicely in his blog -- I'm just sharing here because I noticed it isn't listed on Planet IF and thought more people might be interested.

Thanks for the link. I've now uploaded the source code.

The blog got a lot of views, which led to a second, more complete version of Wander being found!
