My first working MUD server released

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.

Old MUD servers

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.
