Flaschen Taschen -- Miloh says the Flaschen Taschen reached a big milestone -- The Kleine F~T is finished and the big F~T is 7 tall. Come and check it out, donate to the fundraising (we still need $250 to reimburse Scotty in China and another $250-$400 to cover costs that Jarrod and Henner put in for the project). We also need programmers to work on a web client for the Flaschen Taschen. Some folks already are working on new clients for games or to provide a web accessible frontend. Kennrick already wrote a game of life program.
