Not all servers will respond to your request for their information when you click the "Find Servers" button so this patch tries to fix that.

Firstly it implements a new loop that is called every so often (default 150 ticks). Within this loop it checks to see if there are any servers which are offline, and sends out a request for their information.

It also implements a thing to update server information every so often (every 3000 ticks), so the information you she should be fairly up to date without you having to click the "Refresh Server" button.
This task depends upon

This is indeed a nice idea. I have to read it deeper before I apply it, but I promise you I will do that this week.
