    Default Resource conversion updates

    This is more functional than anything, as the rates didn't change or anything, but I made a good number of changes to the resource conversion area - some to help prevent cheating, some to make things easier on you.

    Convenience:
    - You can now convert multiple resources at once (some oil, some cotton, etc).

    Security:
    - You now have to enter a captcha code at the bottom before you can convert.
    - The script will pause for a few seconds before it runs to prevent the double-convert trick that would otherwise be discovered and exploited.

    Please play with it and let me know if you see any bugs or if you find a way to get around any of the security measures.

    Talking Yay!

    Finally you can convert more than one resource at a time! The security thing at the bottom will be a pain but I'll get used to it.

    Good one Mickey, just one more though....

    As a user interface feature is it posible to use a sliding bar instead of having to manual enter how many of each resource to convert - just slide the bar over to the right and 100% gets converted?

    That and/or a convert all button. Come on Mickey, it can't be that hard to make a little button...

    And then it can be added to the buy armies thing - who has had to buy 990 troops with 74.9 geos? keep going back and forward, back and forward, add 500, add 250, add 100, add 100, add 40, finally done....

    And probably a few more applications.

    I am not sure why the captcha code needs to be involved. I believe that any scripting that was being used on the page was so that you didn't have to go to the page 3 times to convert your resources. Making it so that you can do all three at once is a very cool way of doing things and should eliminate that problem. If there was a big problem with users trying to take advantage of your system then I am all for the captcha code. I will just have to take your word on it.
