In personal news, we recently picked up three kittens. All three are girls, which was confirmed by the vet. When I feel up to unloading the camera, there will be pictures in the gallery. Their full names (short version underlined) are:
Captain Jackie Sparrow
Lady Kestrel Hawke
On the MUD front, I got AnotherMUD compiled and started (after finding and installing gcc272), but the code in such a state of not-production-ready that I’m not going to bring it up on the ‘net. I wonder if Flagg still has the production codebase. I might be in a position to offer him a server and a phat bandwidth pipe … I wonder if that might bring it back.
I did manage to get an older version of CoffeeMUD “compiled” (it’s Java), and this version does not have the CR/LF problems that plagued me before. I borrowed the name of my MUD from the D&D sessions Kathy’s brother used to have.
For those of you with a desire the try my MUD out, you can reach it by telnetting to mud.elyograg.org on port 5555. I would strongly recommend NOT using the Windows telnet client. There are many mud clients available, or you can telnet from a Linux/Unix machine, or use a program like Putty that implements telnet properly.
