Moo for Newbies
Welcome to ChickenMoo. To access it, telnet to happy.xkey.com port 3333. From the unix prompt (%), type:<!ul>
You can also execute that command from the terminal application in Mac OSX. The terminal application is in the Utilities folder, in the Applications folder.
If you want a nicer application to connect with, you may want to consider using TinyFugue (Mac Version), or there is a Directory of clients at Google.
Now that you have reached the moo, type:
Now that you've logged in, you ought to be in the first room:
The First Room Welcome to the First Room. This room, the very heart--and, indeed, the thorax as well-- of ChickenMOO, is, unsurprisingly enough, carpeted wall to wall with multicolored shag, brown and red and gold. An enormous overstuffed black sofa (is that leather?) sits against one wood-panelled wall, large enough to sit five people (wait! this is Mills! Make that eight people!). Four or five maroon beanbags lie scattered around on the floor as well. A coffeetable lies in the center, heaped with all sorts of junk-- tarot cards, old cups of coffee, someone's half-eaten peanut-butter sandwhich, a photography book, some pieces of string, several old newspapers, various computer parts, etc, etc. A table next to the couch holds a lava lamp, red fluid in gold oil, flowing up, flowing down. Hanging on the walls are portraits of various members (past and present) of forum, most in embarrassing situations. Various doors lead out to other parts of the MOO. You see room full of monkeys, Chicken, immoral_spy, and Crack Pipe here. Tifanjo is here. Obvious exits: Trap Door Green door Transporter Pad Tie-dye Door Blue Door Fireman's Pole Energy FieldHere you see a description of the room. Then comes a list of objects in the room (room full of monkeys, Chicken, immoral_spy and Crack Pipe). Then a list of players (Tifanjo). And then a list of exits (Trap Door, Green Door, Transporter Pad, Tie-dye Door, Blue Door, Fireman's Pole, and Energy Field).
You can see the description of the room you're in and the lists of players, objects and exits any time, by typing "look" (without the quotes). You can also look at objects and players.
You see a note on it. It says 'Smoke Me.'
Now let's say you want to talk to the people in the room with you. To do this, type "say" (wihout the quotes) followed by the prase you would like to utter.
You say, "hello"
You say, "how are you?"
