MediaWiki, PHP, and Memory

Associated with the 22 Dec fix for magic quotes is a needed configuration fix for memory issues. Because I don't have admin access to the server, I have to attempt various (sometimes impossible) fixes inside the programs that I use.

Associated with this, the index page of the wiki was overly large, especially after I've been adding various extensions.

In any case, I was able to figure out how to increase the PHP memory limit for MediaWiki from within the code itself. Wiki entry is here.

I've also moved the index to it's own page and have added a couple extensions to the wiki which track changes. See them here.
