I don't understand MUCK, from your explanation. I am
wondering whether it means "Multi-User Fuck", which sounds
to be the sort of thing one would expect to exist on the net
(thanks largely to zabna Americans).
[Zabna = Lojban for meliorativity, sort of like the opposite

I have been searching for a Telnet function on my new Windows 98 pc.
Windows Help turns up nothing, which is no fucking surprise. (In
Microsoft's defence I should say that every time I email them to
complain about their products they reply, albeit with the same
bland & not very helpful response that nonetheless evidences at
least a small element of human involvement in its composition.)
