ie.imaginary.com 7890, I believe (Idea Exchange).

If I do recally though, IE is primarily a 'MudOS support site', and really
only attracts the (rather techie) MudOS crowd, and question-askers. Of
course, if you want to snag a word with Beek or George Reese / Descartes
(no comments, please), it's the perfect place to try.

I find the intermud junk a bit too much for the amount of people online in
my active hours too, and typically do not hang out there.

Quite true. :)

I would support the creation of a 'logged' chat mode on this server, if it
is going to get used and would be considered a handy tool (the other
parties involved in the original project certainly won't object, since we
can use it for that too). Re: the above Imud gripes, Imud2/3 will not be
installed on this server (or rather, will shortly be removed, along with
an amount of other stuff), since it's intended as a developing ground for
a new system.

Anyways, if it's likely to be visited at all by anyone nice (you people),
I'll leave it open. :)
