Sheesh, that sounds (not) fun. Also, keep in mind that for us college-
types, many schools have banned the use of IRC on their systems, due to
the massive amounts of telnet time it requires.

I can't speak for anybody else, but I have yet to try any of these places.
A friend of mine once tried to get me to explore "The Foothills," but by then
the runners of the place required a snail-mail form to join, and I was
too lazy. How 'bout posting some info for us interested, such as the
telnet address and anything else we need to know to join.
