Added my own MySQL class for DB communication.

Started (again) to rebuild the site. For the first time since 1997 I decided to rebuild the site without FRAMES anymore. Instead all pages have the full navigation embedded. This way it is now much more user friendly.
Version 1.50:
Reworked AmigaOne section. It uses now a real subdirectory and is completly MySQL driven. This step was required to have better comfort when managing FAQs, Links etc. This also allows user submissions in the near future, at least this was one of the main reasons why I decided to rewrite this section.

Updated the A1 FAQ section with latest infos.

Updated Copyright infos to include 2004 now :)

Removed RC5-72 stats page and replaced it with a direct link to dnetc stats. I have currently no time to develop another stats page...

Removed AI-Clan page. As is seems to be the case that many of the "old" clan members have major problems with my person I am no longer interested in being a member.

Added AmigaOne page with tipps and links to other AmigaOne sites. This page will be enhanced in the future, depending on how much informations I can gather :)
Version 1.36:
Added new MySQL-based guestbook. The old one was lost after moving the site to another server. This is now hopefully no longer a problem :)

Version 1.33:
Changed JS-Code of Navigation to allocate images in the right size instead of just "new Image();"

Rewritten the Download Section. It uses now MySQL to retrieve Metadata for all archives. This avoids the date problems when updating the archives, as all required datas are now taken from MySQL. Also a download counter is now implemented.
Version 1.32:
Added DOCTYPE display detection, it won't be printed for IE6 or NS 6, as both of them are in trouble when using the DOCTYPE...
Version 1.31:
Enhanced again the download section, now sorting of all columns in ascending or descending order is possible. Defaults to date descending sort order.
Version 1.30:
Added Seti@Home stats menu entry.

Enhanced Download page to support not only Amiga-based software anymore. Now the directory parser is able to detect what platform the archive is made for. Currently supporting Linux and Amiga. Also made some security fixes to sgl_private.inc.
Version 1.21:
