Re: Banning inaccessible servers from the meta list

I think filtering these servers out at the meta server would cause confusion, since the server option reportMeta would no longer (explicitly) do what it means.

Re: Poor 2D performance with linux radeon driver

Re: Poor 2D performance with linux radeon driver

Re: `Newbie Academy' - a practice map mainly for Xpilot newb

Re: A new XPilot server

Haha! Nice to see you are still around. Thanks for testing. Since there is no big difference in responsiveness between that server and rotunda.wibro.agh.edu.pl, perhaps for now I will leave the latter on, running ng.
