Yeah, SpaceMaster/RoleMaster is the PRIME style of game for MUD's....the
darn game is so math intensive, it can only speed it up :)  And the
criicals are definitely worth the fun ;)

Don't be too sure on the mac aspect.  Macs have a Thread Manager
extension that takes care of this.  You just have to access it.  I
personally don't know how to do this, but you can do it.  Also, I heard
NT has threading capabilities, but I haven't heard anything on Win 95.
