One of our staff has written the code to start a daemon process to handle
new connections login, character creation etc, etc. Players don't get
passed to the main server til they enter the game. I hear the code works,
we just have to patch it in. We're just waiting on some other problems to
be taken care of before we take this large a step.

I can't wait, no more lag from gethostbyaddr *bounce*.
