Ancient history

Just noticed this sitting around in an old account - no idea why I saved it. =)

It was copied from a usenet posting by Ezra heralding the return of ROM from the first time version 2 went down (gotta be specific since ROM I also went down). The date on the file is 8/22/96. My apologies for the formatting, pasting didn't translate well.

The original Rivers of Mud is back on a new site! Zump and Alander have
spent over a year upgrading and improving the mud, waiting until
another dedicated site could be found. A local freenet agreed to host the
mud, and after working with them closely for several long months, we're
proud to announce that we are open to the public.

All of the older player files are still intact. Yes, *intact*. So, if
you're an older player, you should be able to pick up where you left off two
years ago. For those of you who've been patiently playing on the test site,
those player files are still there, too.

Bells, Whistles, and Features (some familiar, some new):

It's been a LONG wait...
