hrm, i distinctly remember doing this before, back when TMS was using a hacked UBB setup.

I've been mudding since like 97 or 98. I found the original SWR mud while searching the web for something completely different... dilbert screensavers i think..

After a year or so, that shut down, and i bounced around from mud to mud until around june 99, when i decided i wanted to work on one of my own.. well not so much create a mud, but just mess around with a code base, a month later, after being coaxed by a few friends, july of 99, Unknown Regions was created and opened to the public..

At that time, i had almost no previous programming experience ( i did have basic (gw and qbasic) as well as the most simplest c coding backgrounds (i knew of sprintf and datatypes and stuff, but that was it)

During the next year and a half, UR had alot of problems, staffing, hosting, and even my own personal issues, we bounced from host to host, usually on either mine, or a proffessional hosting service which i somehow managed to get free hosting on. Eventually, after all those seemed to run out, and my own host had been rooted (silly old default redhat setups eh?), i went with the host that one of my imms offered me...

Unfortuatly, at that time, the sysadmin (and the imm) decided that i was no longer fit to run things, and changed all the system passwords and took over.. Infact that mud is still up, under a different name.. At that time i had gotten the help of KaViR to help me quell all the arguments of the players and imms who chose sides.

Shortly after that, i tried to reopen UR as a completly new mud, witth different areas and such, but that turned out to be futile, as i had lost my interest at the time..

Since then, i have started, and nearly completed a degree in Programming (our school calls it Computer Systems Technology), and have got the spark of my interest by someone suggestiing i check out a WOT themed mud, unfortualty since i knew nothing of that universe, i was way confused about things, so didn't stick around long, but was convinced to help them try to fix thier code a bit.. but due to lack of time and interest, that really never happened..

Since then i have looked back at a few muds which have opened up using the code from my old UR mud, and gained interest in starting up another.

So I decided to this time start something from scratch, which seems alot more enjoyable as i do love the challenge of learning new things, which the sockets thing was defanatly new to me.

Yea, so thats my history, Some of you might remember me, but i doubt too many would,

Thanks for your time,

Oh Yea,

Mud coding is not my ownly experiences..

Between my last mud, and now, i've delt with asp, php, perl, and sql

I worked for Livejournal for about a year, doing bug fixes as well as implementing new features.

Just thought i'd add that.. i'm not just a pretty face... er i mean mud coder/player/administrator...
