Hmm, interesting. I think I read a while back that if you slightly mispronounce Chinese, something like "hi, how are you?" becomes "your fish are very old", so I suppose getting it almost right isn't good enough.

I have to say that my eyes perked when I saw you're designing a new server. Is there a way I could have a hand in that?

I have emailed you a response. It sounds like we have similar ideas. :)


I too would love the chance to help hack together a new mud server with some good coders. I've worked with C/C++ for 9 years on a wide range of projects (personal, academic, and professional). I also have a fair amount of scripting experience (including Lua), although I tend to prefer C++ hacking :)

If you'd like any help please let me know!

Indeed. I started it in 2003, 8 years ago, and got about two responses at the time.

LOL. I suppose that's what I get for browsing forums on three hours of sleep. Thank you for pointing that out :P
