Damn it, it's Achaea! =) You're not French are you? The French I've dealt
with seem to like to spell it Archaea. 

I have to agree with you on the world balance issue. I don't see any
practical way to do it between two muds that are reasonably unique,
particularly as most muds are generally evolving. I suppose you could
probably do it between a bunch of bog-standard Dikus, but that's hardly
very exciting. "Hey Bob, look, we can go to the exact same area in 50
different muds! Whoo hoo!"

"He that is wounded in the testicles, or have his penis cut off, shall not
enter into the congregation of the Lord." Deuteronomy 23:1
