@remotenemesis honestly it says good things for the fediverse that it is a big enough deal for people to need breaks from it :)
@nono I felt like with Megatraveller they decided that the system was too old school and boring and they had to bring it into the 90s. (Well, late 80s). Then they realized people hated it and they wanted to reboot it, and cyberpunk was cool, so they said "an evil virus wiped out the imperium" and you got TNE. Both seemed to be saying, essentially, "how do we make this boring old-fashioned game cool to today's gamers?"
You could raise your game even further by combining symbols thus: big _jan_, and inside the round head, a _nasa_ symbol where the eyes and nose would be, and a great big _pona_ smile underneath!

@gcupc Data point: I recently interviewed for a job and mentioned my long time familiarity with Emacs. I got an offer. Though I ended up not taking it because of reasons.
That said these days I don't use emacs as my main editor because my employers provide an expensive IDE that does various magic that it would be a pain in the ass to duplicate with emacs.

I only really know the original (pre-Megatraveller) version, plus I have some familiarity with the glorious insanity which is 5th edition.
