@chr I have logins that are older than some people there. So old. So old now.

@anthracite @chr oh gosh I think my oldest still-working login is from 1995 and now I feel weird about that

@anthracite (also why is there an @ofail and @fail on your player object?)

@fluffy so nobody could steal pennies from me :j

@anthracite oh wow I’d forgotten that was even a thing. Early MUCK days with resource limits were wild. The build quota and the save pauses too, so many memories.

@anthracite meanwhile, on SpinDizzy you can type FUND to get 10,000 pennies with a 1 in 8 chance if an earthquake resetting your pennies to 0. Which always leads sone whippersnapper to ask “why do we even have pennies?”

@fluffy yeah it's not like it MATTERED when some of your friends were the wizzes and could conjure up pennies; I think there may have just been a spate of people realizing there was a ROB command that made me opt out of it applying to me, and set the fail/ofails.
