    Nice and useful piece of php coding.

    It’s the sort of small snippet that people use and then start looking more at php and eventually end up as a complete nerd.

    Thanks for providing the first spark…

    Small but well formed piece of code.

    I think that seeing the date gives a sense of the site being “up to date”… even though the effect is achieved with a piece of code.

    Of course you can put the code on any web page, which is a php page, providing your host runs php.
