Had I planned it, I woulda had this all lined up already. Just don't want anyone feeling sorry for me (I could see you all getting teary-eyed) when I'm actually being drop-kicked into my favorite condition. It's a little like having my wife pick me up at the office, and although I was planning on getting a lot of work done when I got home, she wants to take me to the pub for a pint. No, I guess it's not like that at all. Never mind. > > ...what skills <snip> > At the risk of being buzz-wordy, one word: AJAX. it's a good word, despite your hysterical rant, for which I also thank you ;) good stuff, David; thanks so, would boning up on the YUI Chris sent recently be a good start, instead of reinventing the wheel, or do it from scratch to grok it better? joel ****************** oh; if you don't like eXtensible with an 'X', lemme tell you about the time at my current job when I was supposed to find stuff in the transmissions folder. That's how they said it, 'transmissions.' You know, \\servername\sharename\Xmissions\ 'Xmissions' ? I ask you.
