non-blocking ident/DNS code

From: Nick (
Date: 06/29/96

Hello all,

 I was talking to someone who codes for a MUD that I visit frequently, and
he seems to have written code for non-blocking identd checking AND non-blocking
DNS checking for a MUD.  He is reluctant about giving out the code for some
reason, but I am wondering:  Who else has accomplished this task?  This would
eliminate the `30 second delay`/`lockup` problem everyone is talking about.
If anyone has any information to share, please do so.
