MUD - 7th Dimensionnikdoof @ 2021-06-04 08:58:00
This morning i've brought online a basic SMAUG MUD, named the '7th Dimension' (in honour of Dimension Mk1's MUD). Its a very basic install but playable, a lot of title card and text needs to be updated.
To access it by running
mud command from your login, or telnet to port 4555 on localhost.

Gopher and Gemininikdoof @ 2021-03-17 18:15:00
We now fully support Gopher and Gemini hosting. Regular users would of notice the appearance of
public_gemini folders, which are hosted at their related endpoints:
- HTTPS: https://dimension.sh/~username
- Gopher: gopher://dimension.sh/1/~username
- Gemini: gemini://dimension.sh/~username
If you need an example Gophermap or GMI you can copy the files from
/etc/skel/. New users will have these files available to them on account creation.
