	MOO-related, this doesn't matter.  Yes, a WWW call will try to 
trigger port 80 if the person didn't specify anything, but if you want to 
do this for a MOO, they're going to have to specify a port.  The reason 
being that you (as a user) cannot load up your MOO on any port under 
1025.  So there's no way you can 1) restart <moo> 80, nor can you 2) 
;listen(80) if you have MPL installed.  Only a superuser or root can do 

	Thus, in your case, for LakeMOO, you would have to give it the URL 
of: http://LakeMOO's-address:port

	This will make the browser hit the MOO's port as it should, and 
hopefully you have a $login:GET() installed so that it will actually work 
and produce something.
