Try either Demon, or telnet to ibmpcug. co. uk and log in using the 'ibmpcav' account, with a blank line as a password. If you're having lag, try to do a traceroute to avalon-rpg. com and let me know where the hold-up is. Meantime, I think I'll introduce an optional 30 second inactivity timeout which can be turned on or off, so if you're on a dodgy link or fighting, you can activate it and be pulled off Avalon if you enter nothing for 30 seconds.
