Interesting read.

I've played MAngband and other online variants on and off since probably about 2000, but there was a lot in there I wasn't aware of.

Some of the history, and a lot of the technical stuff, wasn't anything I'd heard of before, and while I've looked at the code base, the description you provide there was even more informative(probably because I am a very weak C programmer =P).

I've dabbled with some online stuff in Java(my preferred language), although my current project is back to single player/offline(and not in any sense an Angband variant), but I do plan on building a roguelike MMO at some point in the future, and it helps to see how it's been done successfully in the past.
