Ok, source is  up!


Working on moving it to the adobe group.

Let me know if something is missing/wrong or how I can help make things

I have a lot of ideas still for this project.  I'd like to move the
machine stat communication to only occur through a PHP file to reduce
server communication.  I also have a TODO.txt file with some ideas.

Thanks for the patience!
