I gotta stop going to these shows, keeping getting new and cool ideas to implement :)

I was going to take today off, but I've been putting around on my laptop testing our
new ports implementation ideas. Just run into a few small hiccups so far, but I think they
can be worked out. I should be able to get it a firm thumbs up / down in the next few days, but
its looking very promising right now.

I'll give you guys more info on it in a few days, assuming it all works out. If it does, it should
be really easy to roll a new alpha with the changes, so it could be ready for testing in a week or two.
