What MUD did I play on back in 98?

Here's a long shot. In the late 90s I played on a telnet MUD in Seattle with a lot of high school friends. I've spent the last, oh, five years passively looking for it. If you have any clue or your name is Chris Rolph, help me out! [more inside]

name that SNES game

I am trying to remember the of a SNES game I used to play that had been redone and was made available for PC. There was a post about it on me-fi about a year ago but I can't find it. The premise was that your character was transproted to an alien word and you have to escape their prison and find out how to get home. I have searched the following tags on me-fi: alien, game, games, videogames, and Nintendo. I remember the post mentioning that the creator was French so I even searched that and got nothing. I have searched other places with no luck. All I need is the name of the game and I will be set.

PC performance issues. 1) Is it a good idea to fill up all 3 of my DIMM slots, when my motherboard manual says that the max speed will be DDR 200 instead of DDR 400? The motherboard is an ASUS K8V SE Deluxe. 2) How do I best identify the bottlenecked hardware component that's causing framerate jerkiness e.g. when playing Oblivion (e.g. RAM, processor, AGP card)?

Console cats!

When I was growing up in Russia, one of my friends had a nifty 2D console (at least NES-era, possibly better) that we played every now and then. In one of his games (a side-scroller), you controlled several humanoid cats, each with a different body shape, color, and speciality. I'm fairly certain that one of them could dig. [more inside]

game authoring software for young kids?

Looking for game where you move points of a polygon

Looking for an online polygon point-moving game I used to play but can't find. I think it was in Flash. The game would show a shape in which all lines of a shape were criss-crossed, and you had to drag the points around to move the shape, so that no lines ever crossed.
