I've been LEARNING!!!
And one of the best ways to learn script is to 'borrow' the free scrips available on the web, and alter them to suit yourself. So that's what I've been doing.
See this 'About You' box over there to the right of the screen? The one with your name (assuming you keyed it in when you were asked), the time, welcoming you if you're new to the page or telling you when you were here last, and how long you've been here (and breath...). That's script that I found and adapted to suit this page.
Cool or what???
And another little note: If you clear your cache of cookies, it'll all reset (I think...)
