Now that you are connected to SWU (Host: linux.hartford.edu, Port: 4000), enter y when it asks if you support the ANSI color standard.  It will then give you this logo (minus the linux.hartford.edu:4000 part)
and ask for your name.  Enter the name you want for your new character (if you choose a Star Wars name, the other players will like you better) and press enter (From now one when i say type, I mean type it in and press enter).  When it asks if the name is correct, type y.  Then enter and re-enter the password you want to use.  Read through the next part and choose a race, stats, and a class (hint: Gotal is a good race, good stats will have strength above 15 and avarage above 13, a good class is Jedi.).  Follow the rest of the direction until you enter the game.  You will be at the Dowger Queen (called the DQ).  To return here at any time, type save, quit,  1.
 
    Now that you are on and have a character type who.  this will give you a list of all the people currently on-line.  Look for Nazz (my main character), Dev (my newbie character), or Ural (my friend's character).  If one of them is on, type the following:

    tell <name> Hi!  I found SWU from paymeplease.cjb.net.   Can you please help me get started here?

where <name> is the name of the person you are contacting.  If none of them are on type the following:

    gossip I'm a newbie here.  Can someone please teach me how to use this mud?

wait about 2 minutes and, if no one responds, type the following:

    ?I'm a newbie here.  Can someone please teach me how to use this mud?

wait about 2 minutes and, if again no one responds, type the following:

    newbie I'm a newbie here.  Can someone please teach me how to use this mud?

wait about 2 minutes and, if still no one responds, sign off (type save, quit , 0) and sign on at another time and repeat from ---> here.
