Multi-User Dungeon. Old school MMORPG. :-b

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Ok, I'm way old for "hardcore gamer" stuff, but I do know that MMORPG is "massive multiplayer online role playing game" (or close to that), but what does MUD stand for? :-?

Multi User Doom? :-b

The original hardcore games. MUDs are why a bunch of people in their 30s and 40s failed school, missed work, etc. Think World of Warcraft with text instead of graphics. I lost close to 4 years of my social life either playing or programming MUDs and had an absolute blast doing it. ;-D

Thanks guys. ;-D

So the old school D&D that was all text based would qualify as a MUD then? If so, I just might be kinda cool. B-) Well no, probably not. !+) :-b

MUDs are D&D on the internet. It probably depends on the person to classify it as cool or not, but I will at least say they are a ton of fun if you dig that sort of thing. If nothing else, playing a MUD for an extended period of time will make you a very fast typist. I went from the low 40s in wpm to the upper 60s after playing MUDs for a few months.

Well I'm probably still not cool, but I did play text based games in my younger years. :-) Also got me an easy "A" in typing in high school. :-D :-b (yes, that was a class we had to take :-o )

Zelda does have an imdb page:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1181615/
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.

They are trying to make so many movies based on videogames...
Anyone remember Doom? Yea it sucked.
What about SpyHunter? Yea it sucked.

They both have something in common...

Hmm... Link to production company's site. Think they're in on it, too?

Also, I kept reading yesterday about a "fan" movie that's been in production for years. I wonder if the IMDB page isn't actually reserved for that instead. I mean, this isn't that movie, right? Right? :-o

Very campy as pointed out, but it seems like a reasonable amount of money was used to create that trailer, or a lot of a time. Why spend all that time/money just for a prank? That being said, I would probably watch it. The link character seems a little too fluttery looking for my tastes, and Zelda looks a little too old.

I mudded pretty hardcore for many years. 60wpm? Weak:) I was up to about 130wpm when I was really playing, and sit at about 90-110 now depending on the words. I do have a very peculiar typing style because I developed the style to be able to hit certain keys and words very quickly(for mudding) and I type almost entirely with basically 5 fingers.(right pointer, right middle, left pointer, left middle, left ring) I use my other fingers for "special" keys like ctrl-shift-enter and I don't use my thumbs at all(use my right pointer for the space bar)

I type almost entirely by feel and muscle memory, if given a paper sheet of a keyboard I would probably have a hard time telling you which fingers I use for which keys. It works though and I have yet to meet anyone who can actually type faster than I can.
