MUD from any computer!

I have always been impressed with the MUD Crackwhip. The web based
interface is the most unique I have ever seen. It is difficult to
describe, but it can be accessed by pointing you favorite browser to
www.tbamud.com/play. This unique setup allows you to bypass telnet,
java, port, and other common network restrictions. It is the only MUD
that I have EVER been able to play from work! I challenge anyone to
find a computer it doesn't work on.

Shadowen developed the concept when he could not MUD from work and
has tbaMUD 3.51 up and running for a record of 211 days (same as
server uptime) and still counting. He created a global content
delivery network that matches text from the game to generate related
pictures (over 10,000 of them from servers around the world so you
always download from a local server). Of course it also has an
incognito mode where you can choose not to display the pictures so
all that you see on the screen is a telnet window inside your browser
so you can pretend to do work.

Shadowen has been kind enough to allow tbaMUD's development port to
use this unique interface so I encourage people to check it out and
help us develop the codebase by using the bug, idea, and typo reports
in game. TBA is very serious about continuing development and
continuing to improve the best MUD codebase in existence.

How does this differ from a Flash client? What do you mean by bypassing port restrictions? It appears to connect to a specific port, so couldn't that port be blocked from access by a workplace just like any other port?
