That looks like my dear old Amiga's list command output. Don't forget
programs on the Amiga are teenie weenie, port it to something else and
it'll mushroom. I made a paint program in C and it compiled to 5k of
code. Hey, Chris, ever tried putting linux on an Amiga?

Hmm... Strange you guys talk about this sort of stuff. Personally, I
don't care coz I think my server will take up less space than an LP
therefore it's small. :)
[Rest of the stuff about languages and stuff]
Whoosh! Straight over my head!
I may as well drop in my extremely vague aims:
Majority of mud specific stuff coded into the server itself, eg: combat,
standard object, room, people, elastic bands.
Attachment of code to any object.
I don't have a site to run it on or anything like that, I'm running off on
a shoestring budget and I expect to move around between various boxes
(linux kind, not cardboard).
