By FLW_FTW in General Hacking,
If any of you play MUDs I found a MUD that is a simulation of arpanet/usenet. It seems pretty cool, here is the description they have on mudconnect:
Telehack is a simulation of a sylized arpanet/usenet, circa 1985-1990.
It is a full multi-user simulation, including 25,000 hosts and BBS's
the early net, thousands of files from the ero, a collection of
adventure and IF games, a working BASIC interpreter with a library of
programs to run, simulated historical users, and more.

$ telnet
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

Connected to TELEHACK port 16

It is 2:22 pm on Monday, May 9, 2011 in Mountain View, California, USA
There are 3 local users. There are 24139 hosts on the network.

Type ? for a command list.
Type HELP for a more detailed command listing.
Type control-C to interrupt any command.

May the command line live forever.

Recent changes:
* Type BASIC then DIR to see all .bas programs
* Type ZRUN for a list of all adventure games
* New! Telehack documention: TYPE telehack.txt

Command, one of the following:
basic dir finger help hosts ipaddr
joke login netstat newuser ping starwars
telnet traceroute type usenet users zrun

You can just go to their webpage, and it has a simulated console that you can use to play. Or you can telnet to port 23.
