Even though the term "virtual reality" has hyped to death, it would be
sorta closed-minded to think that VR requires a Lawnmower Man style
interface. It all comes down to how far away from reality you are willing
to go. Lets face it, no matter how hard we try text-based muds can only do
so much. Point being "virtual reality" can pretty much be any system which
requires some sort of imagination.=20

OT: Im SUPER glad to see at least some mail coming over the list. You
don't realize how much something like this list rocks until it is gone for
a few days.=20

An ancient proverb summed it up: when a wizard is tired of looking for
broken glass in his dinner, it ran, he is tired of life.
