I found a 0:2 /oW at turn 130, so I decided to break the speed record.

The wand went for 3b?C, +2 HOB, +3 jumping boots, bag of holding, and
(when I had enough HP) the Eye. I robbed some shops, went down to
Minetown, gated back to the main dungeon, proceeded down to Sokoban to set
up a stash, then went down a few more levels till I felt I was ready to
teleport to the castle.

I came close to beating the castle, but I gated away when a mmf was
summoned next to me (stupid; I should have dropped my ?oScareMonster). So
I wasted some turns in Minetown and then gated back to the castle.
obtained the wand at turn 3600, a little slower than I would have liked,
but still good.

Back to Sokoban for some polypiling, but it didn't yield a =oConflict, so
I finally broke down and wished for it. My big mistake was not having
enough polyfodder; I should have done the Valley before proceeding. So I
ended up not learning the spell of Magic Mapping, and not noticing until
much later when I was deep in Gehennom.

Did the quest (easy). Gated to the Valley and teleported to the VS level.
Did Rodney. Did Vlad. I still did not have +MagicMapping, but used some
scrolls I had found. Did the invocation, started back up. Wasted at
least a thousand turns trying to map Gehennom by hand, but did not get
far. Finally I spent my final wrest wish on +MagicMapping, and the rest
of the game was smooth. I found a marker and magic lamp on the way up but
didn't use them, although I would have saved some turns if I had.

I had found a HoOA, so I used it on Astral.

Woah, I'm so very impressed. And you say you 'wasted' a thousand
turns in Gehennom, so this means you feel you can break this
record?

I guess the 'never hit wiht a wielded weapon' goes with the fact
that you played a monk, and that changing forms goes against speed,
but it's still nice to have a speed record _and_ challenges.

You ain't kidding!

You will regret mentioning those wasted thousand turns when people
start pressing you to sprint a sub-5000'er :)

Seriously, congratulations!

That is *amazing*. How did you manage to gain so many levels so
quickly?

^^^^
I suspect that's a record which is chiefly in danger from yourself.
Congratulations, that's quite an accomplishment.

btw...how did you get 'very fast' without speed boots?

I would imagine by casting haste self. With the Eye you can make
yourself very fast indefinitely without speed boots.

That's amazingly fast. I tried a speed monk recently where I got an
early wish for the Eye, but it still took me about 15k turns. Did you
use the jumping boots at every opportunity? That seems tedious,
although certainly a fast way to move about.

Reverse-genociding of wraiths.

The ttyrec I liked to in my original post,
http://alt.org/nethack/ttyrec/Rast/2005-10-22.12:41:21.ttyrec
is not of that ascension; it's of my previous game (12.3k turn ascension
with no pre-castle wishes). Apparently NAO didn't save a ttyrec for the
new one. Sorry.

I don't know why it shouldn't have saved a ttyrec. Any chance it is
lumped onto the second half of a different one? Although I don't think
that is technically possible either, since the ttyrec starts once the
game launches from dgamelaunch.

Hmmm..... if dgamelaunch has a condition in which it does not record a
game, it is a bug that I don't yet know about, and would like to find.

It is _possible_ that I didn't end the game properly, maybe by closing
putty before nao disconnected me. But the dumplog is complete,
http://alt.org/nethack/dumplog/Rast.lastgame.txt
so that seems unlikely.

Have you *rechecked* the place where it should have been? It seems that
one game that I played wasn't recorded immediately after the game, but
later appeared.
