What, hydraMUD? hydraMUD is my first effort at writing an application for Mac OS X. The main reason I'm building it though, is because in my search for MUD clients for the Mac, all I could find was ancient pre-Mac OS 9 software. I started using Mac OS X last year and I've never looked back. My prospects for finding a good MUD client that I didn't have to run in classic were dismal. I wanted a robust, user-configureable MUD client that would run natively on my system. I had already decided I was going to teach myself Cocoa, now I had a goal to accomplish. In all fairness though, building a MUD client gave me an excellent reason to play more...

I would like to change my previous vote on hydramuds stability. It's crashed 3 times (unexpectedly shut down no force quit required) in the past 5 minutes.

The interface is nice and the program is generally well-organized. (unlike savitar) It allows me to "run" quickly, which is necessary in my million + room game http://www.materiamagica.com (unlike cantrip). I don't have to boot os9! And it saves my settings! (unlike rapscallion)

Unfortunately in order to be competitive in a complicated IEN you need an alias system that supports multiple lines. You need triggers and tickers. I wish you had put these essentials in prior to the extras like transparancy settings and spell checkers.

I will glady receive updates as your program is the most promising, and once these things are in place I would definately crack open my wallet for hydraMUD.

In all fairness, Cocoa gives you transparency and spell checking by default, so it is not as if he has his priorities in the wrong place.

I liked hydraMUD, my favorite client, but, no way to register it, and it now reporting its expiry date, despite downloading each new update religiously has now put me off, handy hint peeps, don't bother getting it, if your previous version has 'expired' :-/

Nowhere is to be seen what MUD actually stands for?

I'm not (nor was ever) a heavy MUDder, but I love the games. I think I'm about to get addicted to one again (I found The Prophecy at http://www.mud.lu.)

Incredible interface, under active development, fast, and very easy to use.

Incredibly speedy.

Very promising.

Active Development.

I like it.

The rating is lower because it's in development. But I'd give it an overall 5, for what it does at the stage of development it is in.
