Now I beleive that there is such a post in the circlemud ftp server, <or
there was a little while ago>
Where a certain list member d/l the code and inserted patches and
updates along with help and tidbits from the others on the list. the
file was names "patched_src". He put in a great effort and the result
was very nice it had all but OLC installed and it was not "pushy" it
allowed for expansion or removal of the patches easily.

I think we should let stock Circle grow as the creator's decide to make
it grow. It is bar far the best base out there and I would hate to see
it become involved like SillyMUD. If people really want a pumped up base
patches are easy and so are the snippets, make one or ask someone to
make one and upload it.

My thoughts for a penny. <please I will pay I need them badly :)>
