Magbor.tws is a TextPad Workspace file. I used TextPad to develop this
    whole game, and I used that file to open all of the PHP and JS files
    at once. Feel free to ignore or delete it, it will not break anything.

    Apache is recommended, but any web server should work fine.
    PHP 4 or 5  (I used 5.1.2)
    MySQL       (I used 5.0.20)
    Web browser with JavaScript and CSS enabled.
    Tested on IE 6 and Firefox 1.5 - Firefox is recommended

=EXTRA NOTE=================================================================
Because this was a personal experiment, and I wasn't initially planning on
submitting it to SourceForge, the code is a mess. I'm sure you will have
plenty of suggestions on how to write it better, etc. Please hold those
suggestions until after the next version, when I will have it cleaned up
and much more efficient. I just wanted to go ahead and get my working
example out on the internet for everyone to see.

        green like the grass)
