For those in the US:

        Hope you had a good 4th of July.  I know I always enjoy the
        tradition of shooting off illegal fireworks in Ohio[1] just to show
        how much of a difference in perception of freedom the people and
        government have.

Anyway, a new snapshot of CVS changes, including a few nasty ones.

Previous snapshot (that had a .tar.gz file):

-- gg - comm.c: close_socket(): Check for IS_NPC() before PLR_MAILING.

-- gg - db.c: Don't re-file_to_string_alloc() anything currently in
        use by the pager.  It's the least impact change.  From
        Andrey Fidrya <andrey@ALEX-UA.COM>

-- gg - limits.c: Autowiz support for Windows from
        Julian Buckley <>

-- gg - modify.c: string_add(): Yet another fix to make the buffer
        limits safe.  From Andrey Fidrya <andrey@ALEX-UA.COM>.

-- gg - objsave.c: Crash_extract_norents_from_equipped():
        Um, duh. Helps to use functions. :)   Spotted by
        Andrey Fidrya <andrey@ALEX-UA.COM>.

We'll have (read-only) anonymous CVS in the near future.  Honest.  I mean
it. :)

[1] In order to buy fireworks in Ohio, you have to sign an agreement to
    transport them out of state within 24 hours.  Needless to say, those
    of us in Cincinnati (near Indiana and Kentucky) just go out-of-state to
    purchase them.  It's still illegal to use[2] them in Ohio, but many
    people prefer the lack of paper trail.
[2] Except sparklers and those black snake things that grow.  Ooh boy.
