I'm a little backlogged on mail, so didn't jump in when everyone was
talkign. After reading some of the conversation on Pueblo I downloaded
it. It crashed as soon as I booted and couldn't make it work, running
Win'95. So, I can't really follow the thread.
In any event, I've seen on other moo's a telnet client built into the web
page. Figured this was done with java, so bought a book on java. I've
looked at the telnet code for it, and that can be hacked into a moo
client pretty easily.(grin, 3 months later, it looked easy.) What I'd
like to do is a double window web page. with the top half showing the
url of a graphic, and the bottome window being a moo client. I think it
can be done without much moo hacking, just a property, called, I don't
know, web on player, and a mod of look self that it sends an encoded url
to the java program.
In any event those are my thoughts in this very preliminary stage. The
method is a security breach though, if someone knew the code, they could
just send the player the url of nude babes on ice or something(chuckle)
In any event, I would like to join this other list if it is formed,
because I want to keep up with the Jones. But, I want somethign
flexible, because we have a large blind community, so I want them to get
text descriptions of any graphic.
