Wow, I'm up all night; Optimizing IK's interface

I think this is the first time I've stayed up all night in months. I don't think I'll be able to do this again for while, though. I normally have to be up during the day to answer the phone but it's the weekend so either my brother or sister will probably be somewhere nearby to answer it.

I spent most of the night working on Imperial Kingdoms, mostly refining the user interface. I'm going through the CSS file and optimizing it based on how I use it in the game rather than how it was used in the forum. This means getting rid of a lot of redundant entries and renaming a few of them as well. I'm also optimizing the pages to take better advantage of the CSS file. For example, the list of buildings page with a full list has gone from ~30KB to ~20KB. I've done the same thing to several other files with similar results. I expect this to let pages load faster and for bandwidth usage to drop.

PS: For whatever reason, my friends list grinds to a halt on the weekend. You'd think there would be more entries on the weekend, not less, but... *shrug*
