why I'm answering this I don't know....
By "diskbased" she meant that the MOO would run off the disk like many MUDs
do, rather than running off a copy of the database in RAM. This would solve
the problem of needing enormous amounts of RAM just to run a MOO. By "fast"
it would mean less swapping (if any) would be required and more RAM would
be freed for the machine to use.
