Welmar was graciously loaned to the society by Stephen (stephenc@rb). The MUD server used to run on Enigma but wouldn't work on Prodigy due to endian issues or some such sillyness so it was decided to get a dedicated machine for it that wouldn't be affected by admins constantly shutting down and tearing apart Enigma. Welmar went live 23rd October 2002 and the MUD moved over to it on 29th October 2002 (at 18:39).
After the Great Hack of 2008 DoC went off to get mud running on one of the linux machines.
Welmar was gracefully retired on the 21/11/08, it's last job passed off to sprout. It's currently sitting under a desk in the clubs & socs office while people try to find something to do with it.
