NEW PAGE! Yes, the first new inhabitant page since it was all unsigned integers and non-leaky batteries around here.

Webserver upgrade yesterday broke quite a few things! Still, I took the opportunity to fix a few niggling bugs that I'd not looked at for $years like the Inhabitants page sort order and picture display for some of the bigger adverts.

Well this could be entertaining for a wee while - a 4.3BSD Unix that runs in usermode on a 68k Mac without an MMU. TCP/IP and NFS support too!
