Entering the MOOniverse
Ya Gotta Have Telnet...
- You have to be able to launch a telnet session in order to visit any MOO. Can you do this? Well, if you're reading these pages, then yes, you can use telnet.
- Straight telnet does the job, but oh does it STINK as a MOO interface. A far superior way to "MOO" is to use a telnet client like zMud which may be downloaded for free. Another site you'd do well to visit was written by two very good friends of mine. Jai and Gofy (their MOO names) give you a bit more of the flavour and usage these virtual communities allow. Worth a read.
Now go to the next page to The Complete Pickle's Guide to zMud pictorial tutorial showing you how to download and install zMud, one of the easiest and nicest of MOO clients.
The next page takes awhile to download due to the fact that graphic screen grabs are used to show you precisely what zMud looks like and where to enter information to configure the client itself.
