Hehe, funny. I made my own version last friday and just put it up on my site, and now he posts his code and i can't get it to work!

The problem is it seems to randomly work/not work on each refresh... I noticed the same thing when I tested the function locally.

Yep... weird. Unfortunately, my knowledge of PHP is just beginning, so I don't expect to solve this soon...

hmm, I tried it again and now it works. Woohoo, I'm hip!
