Re: [OFF TOPIC][New Mud Base]

i would very much like to continue with the Mud++ model, but i could
never get ahold of the original author. i tried the mailing list and the
address in the headers but had no luck.

i really liked the MUD++ code because it looked well thought out and is
still in "baby stages" so is open to easier functional changes if its
deemed any need done.

I would be willing to donate some time and server space if necessary to
help get this going.  i think it would be fun and i would like to get
back into some c++.

if somebody could speak to jeremy (george) maybe we can get rolling on
