yeah, tried that myself... ended up just waiting till I could learn from a 
Running a MUD is not a good way to learn to code WELL....
Running a MUD IS a good way to practice what you already know, to learn it to
a level where you can apply your knowledge (which is what I am doing).  The 
problem is is that not everyone out there writes good code...  if you learn
from them then you may be learning bad habits, even limiting habits.
You'd be better off taking some classes,  but I think perhaps the safe bet is
to find some good books on C, and more importantly, some good books on 
algorithms in C, as this is what you shoudl learn to be a good coder.

Your problem...  You have a problem under a 80-some odd Meg OS...
If you could quote your problem in your mail we might be better put to hunt it
down for you....
