The Weave's World Talker
I started undergrad studies in 1996. I missed all of my
BBS friends so I tried out the
talker community. I started up a
talker of my own called Weave's World that I ran from my Linux machine
my dorm room (orginally a 486).
A talker is sort of a cross between a chat room and a BBS.
You could get to mine by telnetting to deranged.student.umd.edu 7000.
The talker software was VINTS 0.0.2, a heavily modified version of
I took the talker down in early 2001, after a run of 5 years.
Part of this was due to graduating and no longer having
a static IP I could use for the server, part was due to a
hard-drive crash that lost a years worth of files, and part
was due to everyone moving away from talkers to instant messanger
and web forums.
As of 2011 I have recovered a snapshot of the talker from 1999 and
moderninzed the code so that it compiles with a modern toolchain.
Maybe I'll get it back up again...
