Virtual Arisbe Telnet Access Page
The Telnet Address for Diversity University is:
MOO.DU.ORG:8888 [link went to telnet://moo.du.org:8888 — B.U.]
If you have a standard Telnet application already installed on
your harddisk, then clicking on the link above should activate this
software automatically and open a connection for you.
Log on by keying

to go to the Virtual Arisbe space
If you are in a situation where you need to use Telnet to connect
to Diversity University MOO, then it is a distinct advantage to
download and install a special MOO client. None of these are
especially good to work with, but most function fine for chatting.
You should be able to find various clients for different operative
system types at one of the following sites:
A simple Windows Client. This client works at our site with FTP
Inc's TCP/IP software. The only DOS/Windows client which does that
so far (Jan 95). No local editing, pretty useless for development.
[Was http://www.microserve.net/~server/mudwin/. Doesn't appear at Internet Archive.]
- MUDDweller is simple Mac client that works will with Mac
TCP/IP. Ftp Archives:
here [ftp://rudolf.ethz.ch/pub/mud] or
here [ftp://ftp.tcp.com/pub/mud/Clients/]. No local
editing, pretty useless for development.
- Emacs rmoo client (dead link): Works with GNU Emacs (also with Xemacs if
you adapt it). In our opinion the best overall emacs MOO client
(since programming support is good). You can forget about
@notedit, just remember to type '@edito +l' (@editoptions +local),
this was not obvious to me when I started Mooing!
[Was http://thales.nmia.com/~tapia/rmoo.html. Doesn't appear at Internet Archive.]
- mud.el [ftp://ftp.math.okstate.edu/pub/muds/clients/UnixClients/mud.el].
An other emacs client, simpler than rmoo but easier to install
maybe. A number of improved versions seem to float around.
- TinyFuge (tf) [ftp://ftp.math.okstate.edu/pub/muds/clients/UnixClients/tf/tf.README] (Ascii readme file). Easy (on Solaris here) to install.
TF is flexible terminal client for Unix. For people afraid of
Emacs and better suited for RPG Moos.
- tkMOO-light [via Internet Archive] for UNIX, Win and Mac - the only cool MOO client so far (besides
MacMOOSE and rmoo/emacs ... well IMHO of course)
- GraphComp's products:
MUTT Lite is
FREE and runs fine on the following Winsocks (stack/SLIP/PPP):
Microsoft, NetManage/Chameleon, Trumpet, Compuserve/Spry, AOL,
Twinsock. A small(32K) and fast alternative to MudWin.
Otherwise see Daniel Schneider's
Educational VR page (large: 87kb) from whence these links were
fetched for a lot more information.
E-mail me [obsolete contact information removed] if you have
any questions or suggestions for further improvements of this page.
Hope to 'see' you soon at Virtual Arisbe!
