Howdie everyone !

I'm on vacation and I should take some time to write code for  
Wifidog. In the past two days I worked quite a bit on the improving /  
simplifying and regrouping admin UI structure. All the features that  
were in "Hotspot config / creation" were moved to the new generic  
editor. That has allowed me to simplifying and overhaul some classes.  
I created a very nice geocoding class architecture, making it easy to  
support more countries in the future ( I currently support geocoding  
in Canada and USA ). The geocoder is used for extracting latitude /  
longitude data for the hotspots map page.

I also added the first step in alerting users by e-mail when a  
hotspot goes down. I added the "node_tech_officers" table and added  
methods to Node class. A node can have one or more owners ( which are  
users in the system ) and one or more "technical officers" ( tell me  
if you like the title I gave it ) these are users that are in a way  
informal tech support for some nodes.

There's more work to come very exciting stuff coming soon. Web-based  
Install script ( by Pascal ), geocoding +  Google Maps ( me ),  
improved statistics etc...
