Site Framework
I created my own MVC lightweight development framework
- Very little error handling because I want to focus my time on features, not errors.
- HTML display is all done through Smarty, which is fat but gets the job done

Each execution of the URL goes through index.php
 - p AKA Page is a functional area 

- op is an operation to be done
	-  defaults to usually display, usually

- db and session are singletons which you don't instantiate, I have no user object, 
	but store logged in user data as part of the session. Thus use session:get() 
	or db::query rather than $db = new db; $db->query.
	The DB is a PDO object. 

- Flags (user permissions and/or game flags) are done through simple bitmasks.
