    Default random news messages?

    I have a string music site which has various parts (music teachers directory, instruments for sale etc.) At the moment, say for example a music teacher registers, I have on the form process page a snippet of code which automatically adds a news item to my news database, e.g:<BR><BR>Violinandviola welcomes a new string teacher who has signed up today -- Richard Waldock.<BR><BR>However a few more of those in a row on a news page and things look pretty dull, as you can see here:<BR><BR>http://www.jimpixsearch.co.uk/violinandviola/vtools/news.asp<BR><BR>I was thinking it would be better if I had, for example, 3 different news messages which could be used whenever a teacher registers, which could be used in a cycle/randomly? <BR><BR>Can this be done? <BR><BR>I&#039;m using Access in case that&#039;s important. <BR><BR>Thanks<BR><BR>Jim
