This is a temporary page for this section. The current information sounds so far like this:
The Telehack server runs on real hardware. The operating system is CentOS Linux. The data is being stored in yum (absinthe), while the whole game works based on a single-process epoll driven event loop, written in Perl. It also has a Z-code interpreter, a BASIC interpreter, some Linux syscall stuff for the networking, and a webserver with xmlhttp support for the webclient.
