Cheeseplant's House, was the second Internet talker, and the first of its kind to achieve more than 100 simultaneous users (in January 1992).[1] Created by Daniel "Cheeseplant" Stephens,[2] it ran on the same University of Warwick Server/Port as the original Internet talker, Cat Chat, after that talker's abrupt shutdown.[3] It originated several important technical innovations in talkers.[1][2] Through its popularity, it is credited with starting the "talker movement"[1] and inspiring the ew-too genre.[4]

Technical infrastructureEdit

Though it emulated the LPMud-based command structure of Cat Chat, and the ew-too talker codebase that it inspired used LPMud as its infrastructure, Cheeseplant's House was written from scratch in C.[5]
