I enjoyed the daring tale of survival sir.  :D

I hope you get to keep your reputation too!  As much as people are irritated by 
the bugs, believe me that no one is as annoyed by the broken code as I am.  
Lol!  It totally sucks to pour a solid week's worth of work in to this thing 
only to have it plagued by some pretty problematic bugs.  What bothers me most 
is that I did more testing on this version than any of the past versions, and 
these issues didn't come up.  I had Kai running tests for days, and we even 
spent a good day or 2 just testing the multiplayer interaction code to make 
sure the server would work once you had more than 1 player in at a time.  In 
almost all cases, if code works for 2 players it will work for as many as it's 
designed to handle.

Since posting the 1.2 update I haven't been able to work on the code yet.  I've 
been reading through the messages jotting down notes of what must be fixed, but 
I've been busy catching upon a week's worth of household stuff I neglected, 

I apologize for the many frustrating bugs, and I will do my best to have them 
fixed up soon!  :D
