The great thing about having grep--or at least something that
functions like it--is that you can lookup things on your own.  I did
'grep -n idle *.c | less' and right at the bottom I get:

  limits.c:355:      send_to_char("You have been idle, and are pulled
  into a void\r\n", ch);

So, working with my psychic powers (again I bring up my psychic
poweres; I don't make much of a secret of them, do I?  Next week,
there's an episode of The X-Files based on me...) and that clue--which
didn't tell me a lot, mind you--I decided to look in limits.c, around
line 355.  Low in behold if not a page and a half below (on line 409)
I found the code:

  if (GET_LEVEL(i) < LVL_GOD)

Can't you just see Gilian Anderson giving me a thorough check-up?
Uhm, nevermind that train of thought...
