I have maxed out the max string length with my NEWS file. Guess I made too many
changes :) I was wondering if there would be any ill effects of my increasing
the MAX_STRING_LENGTH beyond the default value of 8192.  I don't want to run
into any serious memory problems.  I guess my question is does the entire news
file get loaded into memory or is the news file read from disk each time a
player reads the news?   The computer I will be running the MUD on is a loaner
so to speak and I don't want to antagonize the sys adm by draining the
resources to heavily.  Any thoughts, comments, or suggestions would be greatly
