I change the colors so they are green text on a black background, just like the old terminals that I used to use! What are your favorite colors?

White on black. Relatively large point size.
I use SimpleMU for my telnet connections: it's really a MUSH manager but it has very useful utilities including logging, multiple connections, seperate typing and feedback windows, spell checking, and various macro routines among other things.

There are people still using telnet ? What for ? MUD's ?

Some folks use it to edit webpage files and folders on the a unix server.
I use it for MUSHing. Like a MUD for folks that know how to roleplay and without as much stress on levelling and mobs.

Which colors do you guys use on your C64s?
I prefer POKE 53280,0:POKE 53281,7, then change the cursor color to light grey using the C= key. But that's just me.
(Sorry... Hearing "Telnet" just took me back...)

Ack Mushers the pansies of the mudding community. Anyway I prefere a light green background with black text.

If that impression keeps MUDers off my lawn it works for me. :)

I hereby rate this #2 dorkiest thread ever. Right under X-Wing vs. A-Wing.

No way, we were talking about 80's era roleplaying games on the XP thread. Real dorkiness is far more dorky than virtual dorkiness and it generally has worse hygene. :)
