surely the easies way is to not run the zone reset if the area has no 
players in it. once the part of memory where the area lives has been 
inactive for an amount of time the OS will page it out by its self.
easy and efficient!

P.S. My experience is mainly with merc/envy type muds, if circle 
does NOT do this please please correct me!
