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
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.
