This is the page where I collect all the many, many links relevant to administering MOOs at NDSU (and elsewhere). This page is, guess what, permanently under construction.

To visit a MOO you need a client program. These are some of the generically useful ones

  • tkMOO-light Editing Client for PC users
    Or a local copy here if that fails.
  • The MacMOOSE Editing Client for Mac users is no longer available.
  • Curt Hill's MOOvia Client for Windows 95/98/NT is no longer supported.
  • Java Telnet (with a text-based interface)(currently unavailable)


There are several documents online to assist you with operating and programming a MOO. Here are some of them.
