It’s been a long way coming, but I finally managed to put up my first MUD server to the public! Actually it’s an old server that I haven’t touched since April 1999!
It’s made in C++, but in a style that is called “C with classes” since I barely use much C++ functionality except simple classes. But back then I didn’t know any better, and as a programmer I have matured quite a lot since then.
Anyway, if you are curious about it, head on over to Github where the source can be found. It should compile on a modern Linux system (it does on my Ubuntu 11.10) without much tweaking.
So it seems that Christmas has once again passed all to quickly. As usual I spent it with my family on Gotland. It was a long trip there and back, but worth every kilometer or it.
But it’s also nice being home, relaxing a day before it’s back to work. And of course there is also new-years eve to look forward too!
See you in the new year!
I was going through my hard-drive this weekend, and found some of my old MUD servers. The oldest seemed to be an archive from April 1999, and it contained an almost fully functional server.
So the next weekend I’m going to clean up the old servers, and make sure they can be built on a modern system, and then publish them. They might not be pretty, and the might not follow good object.oriented design principles, but my hope is that it might be useful for someone.
Just wanted to tell you all that my old blog posts can be found here: http://pileborg.org/b2e/blog5.php.
