artordata functional

or as functional as it ever was. Ever since I installed apache-1.3.26 (security fix), everything it feeds into the sql db is empty. After puzzling over this sporadically for about 2 weeks now, I finally found the problem, and it is hoary. In short: the php team changed a default value and didn't tell me. (Actually they did, but I'll blame them anyway.)

register_globals is now set to On, for a slight security hit in exchange for the code being readable. Someday I'll learn wtf I'm doing and fix it.
