Halon Escape will automatically connect to the server - this may take a moment, and then you can play!
Hit F1 at ANY time (playing, looking at a dialog box, whatever) to get some context-sensitive online help.
If you're having trouble, or want to comment on it, let me know!
The source code and the server are now included. To start the server, you can run server.bat WEBDIR or server.sh WEBDIR, where WEBDIR is the directory to publish web pages to. To reach another server, the client must be started with halon.bat URL or halon.sh URL, where URL is the URL of the web page directory. So if I'm running the server on my own Linux machine, just for myself, I could type:
mkdir web ./server.sh web & ./halon.sh file://localhost/home/kamikaze/Halon/web/
To let someone else reach my server, I'd also have to be running a web server, like Apache.
Some time ago, I was at the nameless ISP where some of my friends  work as tech support drones, and stared in awe at their maze of partitions . Then it just slipped out... "If they had a halon system in here, nobody would get out alive!".
And me? I'm just a freelance hacker who's worked as a temp in some of these hellholes and been damned glad to leave at the end of the day with no reason to ever come back. Maybe I read too much Dilbert, maybe I've just seen my friends' spirits crushed by this brutal and merciless system and then put on the electronic leashes called "beepers" like sheep with radio ear-tags, but this is the way I see it.
From such humble beginnings and a bored evening do disturbing little games like this grow. Have fun. <cough> <cough>
XXX is down(note that I have politely changed the initials from FSI to XXX)
