It's root log time again folks. Yet another month of fun and exciting bugs and features. Last month's root log and next month's root log might also be what you're looking for.

Fixed a whoops from Toasterleavings that involved manually reinserting stuff into the db. Mental note. It works, now translate that into a fix for node ressurection. Fixed lometa's bug that looked something like being cloaked then suddenly losing the power (due to level loss, removal from cloakers, etc). This is such a minor case, and the fix would be across the board and in weird places. If people can think of a place to do this, then let me know. Otherwise, we are taking a "Won't Fix" on this one.

I'm back! My net connection went down, but it's fixed and I can keep working. Alas I am sick, but code shall prove to be my remedy

Fixed some general wonkiness in some of the containers with the post-move ad scheme. Nate only fixed jukka; classic needed to be fixed (ekw and default) do not support banners yet. To facilitate this process, I put the code into adheader.

Added tools for panamaus, and any overly bored admin, to change what automaus says during the nightly backup. It is locked out for non approved people. I slightly rearranged some of the backup script times, so hopefully they will all fire when they are supposed to.

Fixed up Everything's Best Killers. Cleaned up the code a TON. Duh. Wow have I learned a lot. Sorted it by kill number and put it in a table. As always, it's still c_e's and gods only. oh well, eh? Also, exeds was a nodeletgroup instead of a nodegroup, which was causing the lookup to fail. Made a sketchy type change, and it seems to be working now. Created a new mechanism by which to lock accounts. This changes the nodetype of the user to that of lockeduser, which keeps them from loggin in I hope it works. Preliminary tests say yes.

Pulled the lockeduser code in favor of editing the user table directly. Thanks to nate for slap upside the head.
Changed e2nodes so that if the user is really a chatterbox alias, it will say so. Check out jb for a good example.

Released Noding Speedometer. It just clocks how fast you may Node in the future. You must be Level 2 to access it. Not really a level power, but can't have every level 1 person off the street using it as it is somewhat expensive.

Also, new level system algorithm checker now available for gods and beta team only.
