	With regards to pulsar-zone: if there are more then 3-4 humans
	on that server the lag is too attrocious to play, even for me.
	Best case it's around 120ms, worst case, like a few moments
	ago, was > 500ms.

	This is /not/ the server we want n00bs to see for their first
	exposure to the game:  a) the aforememntioned lag issues; b)
	'bots cause higher then normal damage (getting tooled by a SC
	gets old real quick); c) the 'bots on that server are idiotic.

	Combine the 3 and you will turn n00bs off to the game very
