Amanda and I would like to meet you at the CASLL MOO on Saturday, Jan.
17, 1998 at 3:00 p.m. CST. Look for the "Quick Reference" list in the
last newsletter and keep it by you while you MOO. (If this is the first
time you're MOOed, type <walk to CASLL> when you appear at The Top of
the Big Hill.) PLEASE NOTE: Connections has moved to a new server.
Please point your MOO client at connections.moo.mud.org 3333 or use the
following address: 184.108.40.206 3333
During this session, we'd like to discuss the theme of the next
newsletter: "What's going on with WAC/WID in Canada?" (Of course you can
also expect the usual socializing and fun.)
In case you still haven't downloaded a MOO client, here's the info from
the newsletter on where to go to get one.
Centre for Academic Writing
University of Winnipeg
The first step in MOOing is to download a good MOO client. They are
free and generally take up little space on a hard drive. Although any
telnet client will allow users to connect to a MOO, a MOO client makes
the process much simpler.
Pueblo multimedia virtual world client
Pueblo is a powerful client that will work with Windows 3.1 and Windows
95. It has many features that few educational MOOs support, but it
comes with good documentation.
This is a reliable and compact client for Macintosh users; it requires
system 7 and MacTCP (or FreePPP).
This is one of the smallest MOO client available (72k); it downloads
quickly and takes up little space. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to
be much documentation about it.
Virtual reality in education: Education and Moo, Mud, Mush
These pages contain links to several free MOO clients for both Windows
and Macintosh systems. A real bonus is the clear instructions for
Computer Writing & Research Labs' Mush & MOO page
Not only does this page contain links to some of the most popular MOO
clients, it also has links to FAQ pages, tutorials and references. Find
