Re: MacMOO

I think the basic MacOS requirements for the MOO would be the 
ability to handle AppleEvents, like the shutdown event.  So it 
wouldn't be nearly impossible to shutdown the MOO from outside it, 
without simply killing the task.

Other apple event support would be nice, but not really neccessary.

The one other suggestion I have is to make it read a configuratoin 
file from the prefrences folder, with all the neccessary variables 
set in it, such as NETWORK_ACTIVE, the default port, etc.  Then 
maybe a nice config app that can alter those variables.  Or, maybe 
stick those variables on a STR# resource, so someone can change them 
with ResEdit.

I was going to take a look at LambdaMOO 1.8.0 when the 
production-ready version comes out, to see about porting it to 
MacOS, if I have the time to work on it.  (PowerMac 7100/66, with 
CodeWarrior Academic 6, about to get 7 or 8, whenever I mail in that 
$&*% registration card) :-)
