Great to see your enthusiasm! BioMOO is great fun - but it can take a
little bit of getting used to. Do feel free to 'talk' to the other
people you see there even if they aren't part of PPS2. Be polite ('I am
a newcomer here - do you have a minute to talk, please?') and you will
almost certainly find people to help. Asking about mud clients in a MOO
is an execellent way of getiing to know people.

I don't use a MUD client myslef (for reasons I won't go into) but it's
good if you can. Some people may have to go through firewalls and not
all sysadmins think MUDs are a good idea :-(. Telnet is messy because
your message and the replies can get mixed up.

Also - have a look at PPS1. There may be quite a lot of discussion on

I expect that some of the tutors will have their own ideas as well.

The wizards in BioMOO and elsewhere have built a very mice inetrface to
the WWW. You should certainly work out how to use it - in conjunction
with a client or telnet.
