TinyMUSH is a descendant of TinyMUD, both multi-user servers for text-based, interactive worlds, traditionally deployed on a unix system. TinyMUSH/Mac is the result of a successful port to the Mac OS, and is now used by several MUSHes on the Internet. It's also part of a larger, continuing effort to redesign and improve the server.
Frequently Asked Questions are addressed in the TinyMUSH/Mac FAQ list.
December 8, 2004: In case you hadn't noticed, the mailing list is toast. If anyone cares, I'll start a new one on SourceForge.
This page is now officially under construction. I had separated TinyMUSH/Mac the product from TinyMUSH/Mac the project, but now I intend to merge it back into

September 20, 1998: TinyMUSH/Mac 0.7.0.9.1 is available. GDBM has been replaced with Berkeley DB, resolving a licensing conflict. This is the first version distributed under the Artistic License. Download it, update your database with 0.7.0d7 if necessary, and then please delete all older versions (including 0.7.0d7).
June 30, 1998: Netmush 0.7.0d7 is available. It's distributed as 68K only, due to bugs in Metrowerks' PowerPC compiler. Download it.

If you're running a public MUSH using TinyMUSH/Mac, why don't you have it listed on this site? Send me mail with the MUSH's name, address and port, registration address (if any), and a paragraph of description.
Occasionally (about once every several months) I send out bulletins regarding new releases or other important news about TinyMUSH/Mac. If you would like to receive them, let me know so I can add you to the distribution list. Please note that those who send feedback regarding TinyMUSH/Mac and don't specify a preference not to be added will be added by default. If you're on the list and don't want to be, just let me know.
TinyMUSH/Mac is available as a single package which includes all programs and files involved in running the server. It does not include any client programs or system software.
TinyMUSH/Mac is now available exclusively via FTP, at
TinyMUSH/Mac release 0.7.0.9.1 (492K MacBinary-encoded StuffIt archive).
This is the latest release distribution, with everything you need to run the MUSH server. Due to license conflicts with previous versions, this is a mandatory upgrade.
Netmush 0.7.0d7 (288K MacBinary-encoded StuffIt archive).
This package contains only the server application Netmush. It's required to update a database for 0.7.0.9 and later if you're currently using a version older than 0.7.0d2.
This version fixes the hang/crash on launch that afflicted 0.7.0d6.
TinyMUSH/Mac does not include any client software. If you want to connect to the MUSH server from a Macintosh, you'll need a program to do so. The Mac Orchard is a good place to look for MUSH clients.
