    I'm replying a bit late on this. But yes, I believe the original penguin chat off of the rocket snail site used PHP servers. You could hear the page poll/refresh about once a second or so.

    You are completely correct in thinking that the engine is outdated. I wrote that thing like 4+ years ago...and it might have even been AS1. These days the main value in that book...

    Mike is right. The best way to reduce the hackability of the game is to offload important decisions to the server. We learned this the hard way. The good news that we have had zero, that's right,...

    Tonypa,

    Thanks tonypa,

    I haven't paid too much attention to the Flash lite releases because the last time I checked it was only on phones in Japan. It's great to see they are making progress!
