While booting the MUD will have high processor time used anyway. Unless,
of course, the processor time is at 0%, then you have a large problem.

Yup, try talking directly to one of the Windows 95 developers. :P

And if anyone would like to BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) a Windows NT 4.0
Server (and probably workstation) with Service Pack 3 installed, try this:

1) Create a network shared printer on LPT1.
2) Reroute LPT1 to the above printer.   (Just made infinite loop.)
3) Print something and listen to hard drive thrash.
4) Go to Device Control Panel and stop the 'ParVdm' service. (Think that's
the one, if not try 'Parallel' or the other printer related one.)
5) Enjoy your BSOD.

Ah well, such is software.
