- The reason I asked is because I've been looking at a couple of commercial

- these services, or know of any others worth checking out?

Depends on how they define and check the memory you're using.  The mud
itself won't go over 8 meg unless you've made very big changes (installing
every circle patch and area on the ftp site probably won't push 8).
Compiling while the mud is running will take up a bit more (sorry can't
check right now).  If you can get away with short spurts over 10 then 10
would be a nice number for most muds.

Yeah I know my numbers are real low, but I've run a stock circle mud on a
4 meg linux box, so nyah :P
