um, what they said on the welcome board. I agree completely aliases
are very important, and some people cant just go out and get a client.
Or can they?

Yea, i made this message on the welcome board for a reason. I can't really use
a client. My computer is way to slow and my server doesn't like ppp
connections so well.
I think that there really should be alises added. I am at a great
disatvantage, esspecially clanned if i have to type the whole spell
esspecialliy vs. someone who doesn't. Not only in clanned as fighter said, but
it has applications in other places too where it would be very helpful. Please

the thing with mud-side aliases, i thought, was that they gobble up
memory like nuts and thus lag the system. well, i could be wrong, but
if that's the case, i'd rather mud on telnet without aliases than having
to bear any more lag than absolutely necessary.

Isnt this mud on a 486 or something? maybe we should pitch in and get a sun
sparc 10 er something.

aliases would be cool, but if you're complaining about being at a disadvantage
in something like pkill (someone made that comment), there are ways around
all i know is that the former howard/peleg and myself have had quite a bit of
experience fighting on 2400 lines with horrible servers that left us link-dead
more often than not and of course, we've been client-less as well.
we were both known to be able to get around quite well in the pkill world.
as for traversing the mud, it's a little annoying to have to type everything to
get from say, tara to agrabah, but it's not too tough.

Also, maybe it's just my stinkin zMUD, but I know clients themselves
to lag a bit, especially when you rig em up with triggers and whatnot.
For me, I cannot chase somebody after they flee, because my client has
a tendency to lag in combat (or rather, just after combat is broken) and
stuff. I'd say being clientless has its own advantages in pkill, but as
far as traversing goes, yeah, clients are cool :P

If u haven't got a client, get one.. if you're computer's too slow,
get a new one or upgrade it. Aliases alone aren't enough, if i couldn't
use a client I wouldn't MUD at all.

only windows clients lag, i'm running tintin++ off a unix shell and
it's pretty much lag free..
