Does anyone have approximate figures on what the hardware
requirements are like, server-side? Turbine was alleged to be able
to handle 3000 people/server (only I never quite found out what the
servers were running! I guess p3-750's or similar given the timing
of the article that made the claim).

I know that a friend runs a graphical MUD off 500Mhz intel machines,
and handles about 1,000 per server without any problems, but each
server is standalone, and the only talking they do is shared access
to a character-file database.
