Michael Palmer on LambdaMoo

   MUDing is a popular past-time amongst various segments of the online
   community - many a University student has fallen foul of their lures.
   The difficulty has often been creating one of your very own. MOO (for
   MUD - Object Oriented) is an OO-based programming language, descended
   from C and Pascal, which is easy to learn, easy to program, and
   provides a rich interactive component. Human interaction with a MOO is
   in the form of English-like sentences.

   This talk will look at MOOs, both interacting with them and
   programming your own. It will also investigate several non-traditional
   uses of the MOO system.

Grant Parnell on MFilter

   Abstract coming soon. It's abount viruses and MTAs and 'stuff'. ;)

Dinner - about 9pm

   After the meeting at the House of Boiled Television Entrails. The real
   name is of course, "The House of Guang Zhou", and you'll find it in
   Haymarket (especially if you follow the crowd at the end of the night).
