I saw that and may try it, but initially I was reluctant to because of 
the issues with trying to run that way on Linux servers, which don't 
have GUI support.

Forgive my ignorance, but I've never worked with IIS:  Do the server 
versions of Windows have a GUI?

The engine loads so face when faceless that I kinda hate to take even a 
few extra clock cycles to initialize the GUI, but this isn't going to be 
the world's most high-performance app anyway so that's probably me just 
being too much of a milliseconds weenie. :)
