Uh, if these messages aren't already broken out into a separate file, let's
come up with a syntax scheme for a t-mode messages file so that server
admins can insert whatever random political statements they want and keep 
them up to date or not.

#define T_MODE_MSGS_FILE <filename>

possible T-mode file syntax:

<in> Dick Cheney steals GW's lollipop!  War ensues!
<out> Vaccine for all STDs discovered.  War put on hold for free love.

have multiple <in> and <out> lines, parse the file when the server starts,
or even on galaxy reset.
