I'll put on a "test" version of the MUD and set up a date for the people
interested.  When the address becomes available I'll let ya know by
private email so we don't get any "unfriendlies" with nasty intentions.
You can all hack to your hearts content, see if we can come up with a
few glitches in the system.  We'll compare our notes and I'll write up a
pros and cons report and post it publically.  This will be a great
learning experience for us all and maybe help people decide what
platform they would like to run on.

As a side note, someone mentioned about the remote access to the
machine, fortunately, I administer from the physical machine so remote
access is something that I haven't looked at yet.  I'll put that on the
"to do" list.  Thanks for pointing that out (sorry, I forgot who it

Anyone out there, please add your comments they are not only welcomed
but encouraged.
