I also fixed a few "bugs":
Although the protocol is stored in the DB, if you use DruinkIM to log in and request a protocol (Druink or TA2), that'll override your saved preference. However, it's useful if you use Telnet to connect, and you don't want to have to disable UTF-8 every time you log in, if your telnet client doesn't support it (windows telnet doesn't, linux telnet does, and so does PuTTY)
I want to try and get rooms dome tomorrow, and I want to get started on scripting, since that'll be interesting. Then I can do a couple of basic quests. Hooray!
