The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

WikiMUD Part Deux: Five Years Later …

Fri, 23 Oct 2009 16:03:24 -0400

… (almost exactly five years later) …
Go on, I'm entrigued

Giles Cooper

Giles is refering to two entries I wrote five years ago. It was more of a passing idea than anything I really wanted to work on and over the years I felt that the most likely language to implement the WikiMUD would be JavaScript (as it's pretty much Lisp in imperative form … kind of … if you squint real hard … and wave your hands around a lot), but over the past month or so, I'm thinking Lua would be a good candidate as well.

Especially given that I can now write network services in Lua.

Okay, doesn't mean I'll actually write a WikiMUD … just that now I'm in a better position to start, if I decide to.

Or someone can …

Or something …

Obligatory Miscellaneous

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
