No longer check in settings.txt

I intend for the server to be the proper way to set things up, but
settings_template.txt can be copied for the script-only folks.

This change is to close #23

** Issues
Feel free to create Issues on this repo if you need help. I'm friendly so don't be shy.
** When Updating
If there were changes to ~settings.txt~ pushed, your server will start reading settings from there instead of your ~LOCAL_settings_from_server.txt~. This is because the server always reads the settings file with the newest timestamp.
You can fix this by running ~touch LOCAL_settings_from_server.txt~ or opening your desired settings file and saving it in a text editor.
