Wheeeeeeeeeee

So today was the day.
An insane night, on an insane channel.

So we were promised Cake.
Which got a bit delayed,
but the end we got a plate
Which was truly worth the wait

Translation: I've gotten accepted into GSoC, and the community bonding period has begun!

A couple of people I know got accepted as well -- Satya, Ramnik, and Siddarth. This will be a fun summer *grin*.

I was going through the abstracts of the accepted applications in orgs that interest me, and I found the following to be *very* interesting (in no specific order):

Yay! Cake and champagne! Congrats!

I feel kinda bad about stealing your "rights" to the BZFlag web interface, especially since it wasn't really an original idea of mine. I hope to make it awesome enough to warrant your forgiveness, though!

Your own project looks quite insightful. I love to see Gentoo making progress!

Oh, no, I wasn't blaming you, infact, I'm very glad that someone is working on the features I want in BZFlag!

Have fun implementing it! :)

Well then, here comes my wishlist ;) -
1. Extend the webinterface to be (optionally) usable by more people than just the server admin.

- masters can control everything
- admins can control most stuff
- users can start (a pre-configured list of) servers with configs they want, and then connect
- anon can only view the available servers, and their stats

2. LDAP authentication! \o/
