;) This isn't a flame, just a correction. Observe the underlined statement.
Now put things in perspective. Now read on from the underlined statement.
Now incase your still a little confused (I do tend to pack alot into small
paragraphs.) Assume: a) I'm the Arch Coder for a Circle mud. b) I was
moving the mud to MudOS with the Nightmare lib but I had problems and my Imp
disagreed in any case. c) I appeared to experience a crash on my Circle mud
the same time I IMPetuously committed suicide.

Bob, the (still) Lazy Circle Mud Coder.

PS: Oh, anyone who hasn't checked out the new Nightmare IV package should.
It's rather
    neat. Never ignore the competition. Even if you occasionally get the
urge to join
    them. ;) I do think LPC is an excellent system for developing muds,
probably the
    most logical system. The only problem I have with Nightmare IV is they
are getting
    TOO damn cutting edge. Maybe JE should consider moving Circle to
    It would probably be easier than rewriting the code for c++.
