     I'd have to agree here.  The only way they could fudge it is to say 
they are "borrowing" the hardware to run the mud, but I doubt that is 
what is really happening.

     I think the words are pretty clear, but don't just think about Jeremy
here.  There were 5 other people that made the DikuMUD that Jeremy now
continues to develop as Circle.  That is also a violation of their
license, which is more specific about things like that if I remember
