Heh, that was originally intended for use for an ad banner, but it was REALLY primitive work BEFORE I learnt PhotoShop or Gimp.

It was for LinkExchange, back in the day you added this banner which when you have it on your site YOU can have a banner that shows on others sites, etc. like a webring almost.

it was a rotating CGI or some script that would load banners randomly from a location. If you paid money it showed up much more often.

By the way, if anybody missed me, sorry for being away for so long.

Not everybody could have come up with his story.

Basse; see it as a compliment!
DAT; see it as offending!

Who ever said that you couldn't keep everybody happy? Not me anyway!
