Regardless of how you get your input stream, multithreading will make your processing of the protocols much easier to code. The only thing you need to do is wait and notify.

What have you been talking about? Grin I meant the old school text MUDs too, which last I checked didn't have things like compression, images, and sound...

Heh ok, maybe we just have different definitions for "old school". When I first started playing with MUDs, we were all using Gopher LOL
