If you met me in real life, you probably wouldn't like me. So let's skip the formalities... By the way, I'm not dead, just overwhelmed by real life, and this project has taken a serious back-burner position. Honestly, I read the email or two I get, and have responded to most when I could :-)
This is some MUD code I maintain. Talk about a "out-of-the-box-MUD", this should make it possible for even the greenest upstart MUD admin to be able to get their own MUD up and running.
