New version of Chisel. (bugfix release)

Chisel 2.1.4 fixes the 'Why do my files get smaller when they go through Chisel?' bug. Answer - Chisel wasn't copying the resource fork of the map. This version fixes the problem and another user-interface problem with an up-coming effect.

I've also added details of my current projects to the links page. OK, so it is Quake-based... I'm human.
