Perhaps it was written for a different patchlevel than what you are
using...  In any case, there is a warning, on every place I can remember
that snippets and patches are available to download. Something to the
effect of "not all of these snippets will work with your version of code,
so be prepared to fix one or two bugs that may arise..." -- quoted from
the Ceramic Mouse snippets page.

I wouldn't count on it, most ISP's won't even give you a shell, let alone
run something like a MUD.  There are quite a few mud hosting services
available (, planetmud and Mr. Evans' project, Kilnar
Networking Services come to mind) which are fairly cheap, and (hopefully)
have way better customer support than the ISP's I've dealt with.
