If you didn't come across this, it's worth the read:
Wasn't around for this, but I did do my MUDding in the very early 90's - i recall my housemates and I had a local 10b2 lan and an on-demand modem dialup so we all could play on our own computers down in the basement. We frequented NannieMUD and many others. That was when your ISP would give you real routable ip address and it was great fun.
If anyone else is interested- i'm putting out feelers for VCF East 2021 (I'm banking on it being in person!) - and running some vintage muds on vintage UNIX systems, connected up to each other with lots of terminals for interactive play. Message me off list if this is something you are interested in ideating on. (hint-> Jameel, Perkins, Ethan(s) and others from UNIXTOWN...)
