Great.  ;-)

It wasn't a problem for me now that I've done it, but yes, continuum
was really slow compiling while 16 netrek players fought it out.  ;-)

Already started.  I've a php directory in my Vanilla tree and I've done
a few things with it already.  What do you think we need in the way of
administrative features?

My guesses;

(a) start, stop or restart the server, [privileged]

(b) preconfigure defaults for next INL game, including team names,
game times, and captain character names, [privileged]

(c) reservations for the INL server,

(d) show list of games, latest first, team names, final scores,

(e) on click to recent game, show stats, message log, playback links,

(f) feedback to server admin,

I'm actually needing this if I set up Netrek for the eight players I
have now in the outback town down the road.
