Assuming Windows doesn't crash on you.

Um, change your font then. Bigger, clearer, etc.

Reboot of what?  Your machine? The MUD?  Use the mini-mud index to load
only the zones you are working on and the required zones.  That'll make it
boot a lot faster.

So use Linux or other Unix to patch it for you, then tar+gzip it to
download.  You can find versions of Linux that will exist on the same hard
drive partition as Windows, in addition to the Cygnus tools.

Otherwise you can ask someone to make a copy to upload on the CircleMUD
FTP site.
