A user on my forums suggested I put in a slice of DHTML code that simulates snow due to the weather this morning. Quite cute, if not original. I then got to thinking: instead of me editing my header code every time it snows/stops snowing, how about automating it?
However, with usually 60+ people on my site during normal hours, I’m pretty sure the BBC would get tired of their feed getting hit everytime someone clicks a link. I’m trying to think of a way of doing a single check once per hour, and then using the locally retrieved data to determine whether to trigger. Has anyone got a nice way of doing that that won’t slow down the site for the enduser?
(Not even sure if I can execute PHP in the headers of Invision, the forum software I use, but I’m sure there’ll be a way of hacking it in somehow!)
