This evaluates to if they're a connected player (the ch->desc check
makes sure they're connected).  In this manner, the code the follows
the if statement won't occur when the player is linkdead, etc.

I know of a MUD that implemented an auto-purge to linkdead characters.
Not extremely popular, but it certainly deterred everyone from just
link-dropping.  Anyway, I suppose you can do it by looping through and
decreasing a timer so that you can give the player 5 or so minutes then
just saving them and logging them out...  Something like that.
