 for AberMUD
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

      The first popular open source MUD.  The first
     version of AberMUD, named after Aberystwyth, UK, was written
     in B by Alan Cox, Richard Acott, Jim Finnis, and Leon
     Thrane, at University of Wales, Aberystwyth for an old
     Honeywell mainframe and opened in 1987.  The gameplay was
     heavily influenced by MUD1, written by Roy Trubshaw and
     Richard Bartle, which Alan Cox had played at the University of
     Essex.  In late 1988, Alan Cox ported AberMUD to C so it
     could run under UNIX on Southampton University's Maths
     machines.  This version was named AberMUD2.  Various other
     versions followed.
