Block to display EverQuest II and Vanguard Update Notes from the Sony website. Intended as a center block or module.

The included blocks will retrieve the Everquest II Update Notes from http://patch.everquest2.com:7010/patch/eq2/motd/en/updates_live.html or the Vanguard Update Notes from http://patch.vanguardsoh.net:7000/patch/vanguard/motd/en/updates_live.html, parse the server status and latest headlines out, and cache them for 1800 seconds (half-hour) in the {prefix}_blocks table.

This block is a good example of a method of retrieving content from an external site and caching it.

Also included are EQ2 and Vanguard modules to display the block data as a module. NOTE: This feature requires that the respective block be installed (but not necessarily marked as active).
