Could you possibly add support into MUSHclient for carriage return without newline? On Amnuts based talkers, the bulletin boards have a posting timestamp which is used internally for expiration purposes. The way the Amnuts talker is programmed, it is supposed to hide this timestamp by sending a carriage return character after the posting time. The makes the from information overwrite the timestamp so the user doesn't see it. However, MUSHclient doesn't recognise or do anything with this character. It results in a slightly hard to read line:

PT: 1007866744From: <name> [ Saturday 8th December 2001 at 07:59pm ]

I should only be seeing the following:

From: <name> [ Saturday 8th December 2001 at 07:59pm ]

This could be solved by the Amnuts talker author simply not printing the posting time at all (don't know why they decided to print it to begin with), but I think it would still be a good idea to make MUSHclient support a carriage return without a newline.
