I am a sysadmin too.
I ran circle as a root ONCE in my life.
Well, i was logged as root to do some admin jobs and i forgot to logout
to my user before running circlemud.
On my first linuxbox, about 3 years ago.
Have you ever did something like that when you was a linux-newbie?
I know that running programs as root can be unhealty for your system..
Excuse me for the dumb e-mail I've sent, please.
George, I would like to know when (if ever) in "standard" circle the
room array will become a room list.
