If it was static then its easy to place pics or link them.

if you know a scripting language then thats what your going to have to use. Even if you do know a scripting language then its going to take some time to get this the way you want it.

or you could just use a shop-in-a-box product like actinic but be prepared to pay

I would rather if it was me make my own just for the experience alone.
But since I recon I could make something of that nature no need to learn.

But would need to be php or such like.

not if your independently wealthy ... Well i must be having a title

everyone keeps saying " DJ.. your a count"

and counts are normally wealthy so 379 is peanuts
