Does anyone have a patch for life? Does anyone have a patch for newbies?
Does anyone have a patch that will force someone else to TRY to code
something before giving up and asking for a pre-done patch?

What I'm trying to say is that most people here post something along the
lines of:

I tried....
It did this....
But I wanted this...
Here's the code...
What did I miss???

I was trying to do....
and it mostly worked....
But when I do this it crashes....
Here's code....
Here's gdb output...
How did I goof???

Those types of posts are WONDERFUL!!! They show that the person tried to
code on their MUD before coming to the list for help. Those people that

Where is the patch for X?
Where is the patch for Y?
Where is the patch for Z?

Well... Those get on my friggin nerves. If you want to know if a patch
exists, then check the FAQ. It points to the main circle site and Alex's
main Circle site. Those sites point to all known Circle support web sites
and ftp sites. If you don't find it at any of the above.... To F'in Bad. You
have to write it yourself. Hope your fingers don't cramp from typing more
patch < filename.patch

I'll step off my box now and let someone else hear it. Sorry for going
off on a tirade.
