All we get is asking for help.  As i said, not much sharing of ideas.  And
is it just opinions you like?

Nope.  What was my bid on this? :p  I got on this list 'cause it was
billed as a way to talk to other circle mud coders, not help the newbie

Isn't it a little late to learn c programming when you head into the IMP
positions as 9 out of ten of these guys must be?  Otherwise thier imps
would be helping them...

P.S.  I'm not mean spirited, just tired of people who want to walk before
they run.  It's not just Circle Mud, it's too much of life in general.  I
tell people who ask me certain questions about coding not to IMP a mud
because I think it's doing THEM a favor.  I seriously do believe that.
They can get imm positions on other muds, you know.
