What is a good, baseline for when an object should go back to disk and out of ram? Obviously if there is noone near that room, the room and static objects(non-mobiles) in that room don't need to be in ram yet.
1. Go to kanga.nu
2. Subscribe to MUD-DEV mailing list
3. Post this question there
4. Await detailed feedback from lots of other MUD-developers. Although, if it's been asked before on the list, you should google for
"MUD-DEV" disk-based [etc]
although if someone on-list rmembers a thread on it, they'll probably provide links and possibly search-terms.
