Ok, if you know that term you are old ... well old in IT terms anyway :)
Any of you ever mud or still remember the olden days (1990's) of mudding?
I remember my first mud was a local version of LPMUD - was called Ultim8 if I remember correctly. You could get all the way to level 20 and once you got there you became a wizard and could start coding additions to the mud.
Those were the good old days when fun was free and a 56k connection could run about 5-10 mud clients ...
Well .. that was my nostalgia for the day ...

I still mud btw :P Very cheap and free way to game on any connection and any crap pc :P Playing one called Clandestine and now and then one called Medievia. You can quickly see where today's MMORPGs got their stuff from :P

Absolutely loved them. I guess I'm a fan of the old school. It really takes as much imagination as it does clock cycles to play those games.

I must agree on the imagination part ... don't get me wrong I love todays MMORPGs and the graphics ... but reading through room descriptions had it's charm

Its amazing how things have changed. mudding was basically like reading a novel and adding your own bits. We're so used to good graphics now, i find myself getting irritated when i have to read a few paragraphs in an rpg when i could b bashing something instead, lol.

I used to be an absolute MUD addict back in 1995/96, to the point where I was sitting at school and all I could think about was getting to 7 PM to get my fix :D
I used to play a MUD called Avatar, I think it's still going but it suffered from the same problem as others do when they get too large i.e. too much regulation and people only interested in "power-levelling" which kinda sucks the fun out of it.
