With all the babble going on.. maybe in my uneducated opinion I dont know
what I'm missing but damm if that don't look like exactly something we
need. Aside from the abilty to run a #2 or wiz only verb for an emergency
dump to a different local.. but something like that wuld not only help
prevent lots of spam you see in many moo's that I know I get tired of as a
wiz and player.. but also track down run away forks.. verbs problems and
many other things faster and more effiecient. and like most folks with me
time is money.. so if I'm here I'm having fun and relaxing but as the
Internget grows folks are offering jobs. WEb designing and if you can
learn things like java or pueblo or one of the other many languages you
can write your own ticket almost.
