Webduino update

I took a few hours today to get back to an old open-source project of mine, the Webduino HTTP server library. Since I last touched it about 18 months ago, a few developers have forked it over on GitHub and even done some pretty cool projects. Martin Lormes has been writing at about his changes, including favicon.ico support to keep browsers from making extra requests and supporting HTTP basic authentication. I also saw a Christmas tree that had its lights controlled by a Webduino-powered form.

I've got my own fork going over at GitHub too now, and just checked in a bunch of small fixes that I'd been saving up. I've not had a chance to do tests yet, as I've got to dig up some of my hardware from where I left it after my September trip to New York City.
