Dead external link for the luck calculator thing.

This refers to the (now removed) link, I wish we had something similar on the wiki:

Oliver Klozoff has provided an excellent tool for displaying a chart of the probabilities of the various probably outcomes of rnl(x) for each possible Luck score at http://klozoff.ms11.net/cgi-bin/nethack-rnl-calculator.pl
Judging from the values on the wiki, the cited script fails to implement the condition if(rnl(50-Luck)) from rnd.c#line54. I have corrected the numbers. A wizmode test (setting a cursed landmine while riding at unskilled with Luck=13) was used to compare both versions: mine is statistically significantly correct. Tjr 00:05, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
