Is it possible to make entries into a MySQL database (+ PHP) which expire
are therefore autoremoved when their allocated date arrives?

If you are on Apache set up a CRON job that calls a PHP script daily that
DELETES from the table all the stuff whose date is today mius the time
period you want.



[rant]Is it possible to automatically remove posters from the thelist who
send stuff with high importance when their e-mail arrives? (It's Friday, and
I shouldn't be grumpy I know, but WTF? Over.)[/rant]
