Hmm, your response is highly immature for one thing, and honestly I don't 
agree with you.  First off, what you wrote in your original letter 
(something like "make me something worth patching in") was showing your 
laziness to go out and BE ORIGINAL.  If you are as experienced as you say 
you are, then just code it yourself.  As for not wanting to waste time, 
welcome to MUD admin, if you don't want to spend the time, I highly 
encourage you to NOT run a mud.  And C buggy?  Not a chance, only the 
code that people make, buy a book, thats what they're for (believe it or 


Waste time not when thou hast not time to waste.
