TeensyMUD 2.7 released - Baby Got Back!

TeensyMud the original only ruby mud with smoking hot T&A action just
got
Back.

You're going ta want to get wit' it.

----- Introducing TURDS -----

Tyche's Unary relationship Database System is a implementation of unary
relationship technology.  No not relational technology, *relationship*
technology.  Once again I have simplified the complex into trivial
simple pabulum.  TURDS was inspired by the performances of Rick Moranis
and
Sigorny Weaver in the timeless classic drama Ghostbusters which
illustrates
the primal unary relationship in metaphor.  Yes, the Keymaster and the
Gatekeeper.  Like Romeo and Juliet, Troilus and Cressida, Helen and
Paris,
Tyche and Galadriel, etcetera, TURDS translates all relationships into
male-female pairs.

With TURDS you can now use YAML, DBM, GDBM, and SDBM transparently on
the ass end of your TeensyMud server.  SQL support coming soon.  TURDS
only supports heterogeneous data.  For male-male and female-female data
support you'll have to use queer relationship technology.

----- CRAP support -----

TURDS is front ended with the Cached Random Access Portal.  CRAP is an
object level cacheing mechanism that enables you to use large TURDS
without
keeping a lot of shit in memory as CRAP regularly flushes it.

Just for example I was able to convert stock ROM into TURDS and run the
server only using 1.5MB of mud data in memory thanks to CRAP.

------ Introducing FECES ------

The Functionally Enhanced Configuration Environment System allows you
to completely customize your TeensyMud server by using a single global
configuration file.  Got information that varies from run to run, throw
FECES at the problem.  I usually end up doing this anyway.

----- Much More  -----

The NOSY logger now has Class level logging.  You can snoop on classes
that
are misbehaving and punish them accordingly.  Good stuff.

See the changelogs...

-------------------------

Some have complained that I have an unhealthy fixation with the back end
of mud servers.  I can't deny it.  I'll be devoting more attention to
the
front end of the server in the next release...

The working secret code name for the next release is HOOTERS.
