yah - <BR><BR>what I&#039m trying to do is make a newscript that posts the time and date of the day it posts. for instance if it posts right now it would post 11/13/99 at 2:56:13 PM EST etc etc.. but when I try to post that it doesn&#039t show it. is it because I have a &#060;% &#060;% %&#062; %&#062; going on? how do I make it so that I can show it? also I am trying to make it so that when you post it will save it to a txt file with the time posted on the text file so that it won&#039t post the same date everytime I do =date. <BR><BR>thnx. <BR><BR>wallyboy<BR><BR>
