That's correct. CompuServe had DEC-10s and that's what MUD1
ran under, although it took a couple of days to make it work with
their own home-grown version of TOPS-20 (which changed all the
major monitor calls for output so that none of them worked!).

According to http://www.mud.co.uk/richard/incarns.htm it was
1985, but that was just when I began writing it. I think it wasn't
until 1986 that it went live.
