Well true but the main reason for i decided to have 2 ports a public and a
building port is mainly becoz that olc tends to be buggy and it's easy for
the builders to crash the mud with olc if they really want to! Also i added
a automatic reboot thinggy that will automatically reboot the mud when it
has been up for 48 hours so i don't reboot when i add a new area i just add
it to the index and it will be automatically included upon the automatic
reboot (or the rare case that the mud crash within the 48 hours)
