Sentient weapons are in and working in svn, so are 2 'new' classes and a rewrite that deleted tons of duplicated code thanks to a hint of myshkin on oook.
Part of the cygwin build process updates a stat file with the new executable size since I dont want to inflate executable size:
01/27/2010 03:03 PM 2,002,859 hellband.exe
02/02/2010 10:18 PM 2,002,572 hellband.exe
Mission Accomplished ;)
