I've been talking with Emily about putting my MUD on her parents machine with the persistant connection. That would allow me to chat/play with her and anyone else who logs into the MUD. I'll have to find out what the IP address is.
We've been implementing a magic system on the MUD which is seed based. That is there are no specific spells, but rather you can mix and match magic words to achieve the desired effect.
I still feeling a bit tired. The sick feeling I had is gone though. My legs are still sore from the weekend and the stairs here are not helping.
