Patching - 2021/10/10

nikdoof @ 2021-10-09 07:45:00

Tomorrow morning (2021/10/10) at around 08:00 UTC s1.dimension.sh will be patched and rebooted. This is your friendly warning to save any open files you have running in tmux sessions.

After patching if you encounter any errors, drop a email to sysops@dimension.sh.

Join form fixed

After the introduction of subdomains for users it seems the application form broke, identifying everyone's IP as invalid. This is now resolved, if you've been previously rejected with the "IP No Bueno" error message then please try again.

User sites now available at .dimension.sh

nikdoof @ 2021-06-17 12:31:00

Good news! User sites are now available at <username>.dimension.sh, I know a few people have been asking for it.

Everything should be the same as the existing hosting, but if you find any issues just drop a mail to the sysops.

MUD - 7th Dimension

nikdoof @ 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.
