If you're asking me, no, it never happened when entering commands quickly. It only happened when entering a bunch of long lines of text at the same time. They all got sent, just sometimes in the wrong order. It doesn't really matter unless someone else has this problem, though, since I now use a different client that doesn't do that.

Good news! I have the prostate of a much younger man.

And my doctor has the hands of a longshoreman.

I've been going to the same hairstylist for like 10+ years now, I appreciate her so much. On top of having killer hairdressing skills, she's sweet and cute and so easy to talk to. We spent the full 90 minutes of hair time talking about my stories, her struggle to find a new employee for her hairdressing studio, laughing about embarrassing things that happened to us and making fun of trashy zombie flicks. It's not just 'customer talk', either, she's actually read some of my stuff!



<3 Evelyn, thank you for making my day. And my hair, too.

I use MUSHclient, and I’ve never had this problem.

Does this happen when you’re entering commands in rapid succession?  Could be you’re violating some kind of spam interval and CMUD doesn’t stop you.  There might be a setting for minimum inter-command delay in your client you could change.  Total guess, but it seems plausible.

Best I can offer, is that there are some "generally accepted" ideas of what accents sound like, in game. Tribals speak like "Foreigners" would speak English, a la "This is thing I like. You sell?". Northies are very "proper" and poised, at least in public, and often choose their words carefully. Southerners are gritty, say "fuck" a lot, and if you believe the Tuluki hype, are very very bad at innuendo and suggestive terms. 'Rinthis are cockney English. "Oy 'gov, whas ya got in there, yeah?"

But honestly? Whether you type in full and complete sentences, or whether your text is "'Ey, Vennant, th' feck ya's be gettin' meh 'en mah boy 'ere?" its all good. Just don't expect people to understand you if you have a heavy accent.

Riev said it...and he's not defining it alone. Definitely through observation and perhaps even evolution, I've seen the same.

And much like novels and the text based nature, you might see it through a slightly different version in your mind and that's just fine. For the 'rinth, I've never quite imagined the cokney english part of the accent, but definitely a subpar use of broken language, slang, and lots of ' replacing various sounds. And again that's just how I hear it in my head when I read.

Just before Abe Lincoln's inauguration he attended a reception. The ambassador from Holland remarked,"“His conversation consists of vulgar anecdotes at which he himself laughs uproariously.”

This pretty well sums me up. I am Abraham Lincoln.

The new Jumanji movie was pretty funny. Jack Black is hilarious!
