I didn't know that. I don't know a lot of things, actually :P

Top-secret. If I told you, I'd have to kill you.

j/k, it's a small tintin bot that connects to the MUD. After I get
a Mass/Neotek robot re-written to CircleMUD, I plan to use the code
to activate it instead. If you can think of a "better" way of doing
this, please let me know.

I didn't include the program info because I only wanted comments about
the code, not the bot. Now I'll accept comments about the bot:P


I wonder if we could coax the hole on the ozone layer to move over
Iraq long enough to give Hussein skin cancer?
