MajorMUD?


Wasn't familiar with the term, but a google images screenshot looks like it.

Wow, apparently, you can still play it:

Congrats Alan!

Too bad that you don't get points for helping people on the forums, or you would be ahead of mapcat by now!

I remember paying about $200 to upgrade from 256 KB to 1 MEG! That enabled me to load the entire MS-DOS operating system into a RAMDISK so that my computer would go faster. Once I did that, I could run at the full 10 MHz processor speed and not have to wait for the slow hard drive response time.

I actually caught hell from a couple of jealous local BBS SysOps when I bought a 14.4k modem, even though CompuServ was the only thing I could connect to that worked at higher than 2400, and that required dialing a special 1-800 number, rather than the local server.

My semi-belated congrats to you Alan. I would have posted yesterday but I was just too busy trying to catch you. :) If you ever get bored with the small stuff, like I do every once in a while, go to Miami, FL. Not really many editors down (I know of one active local editor) there and seems to be a lot of "non local" stuff that can be fixed. It is where I go when I want to take a break from the mundane.

Again congrats.
