            Berlios unreachable
            Berlios seems to be down again. Can't the handle some traffic

            from FM or is it DOS again? Anyway, there is an unofficial

            mirror of lincity on http://www.openftp.de/openFTP/STUFF/lincityng/

            but they have more adds than Berlios.

            We changed the behaviour of the mousbuttons in 1.0.3.

            Just some suggestions:

            * The file is 33mb for source download. Is there anyway this can possibly be brought down to about 25 or so?

            * The game needs sliders to adjust music, sfx, and resolution. Would it be possible to have them in the next version?

            * Make it so all the building choices autoshow when hovering over the left menu bar, rather than having to right click the buttons to pop out the options.
