    check at either

    or somewhere else for the script, or you could just type it in in a search engine.

    Not to go off topic but on this subject I find the mouse trailers to be very annoying.

    Yes, that's why mine are only at my "Break Room" site for
    visitors wanting to get some ideas while taking a break from the rat race. But, there may be instances where those mouse trails could come in handy.

    I am in total agreement here. Again this is one of those tricks usually used by the absolute beginners to attempt show off capabilities. Unfortunatly, it defeats the most important of website rules and that is usability.

    It can also scare off those with a little more savvy, but without enough to keep them from confusing it with "Comet Cursor" and the Spyware that they install.

    Also

    Also remember everyone may not have as fast of a c as you so if you have alot of graphics then it will make it harder for them to view.

    Some people won't stay to watch a site upload. So keep in mind the more graphics the less chance of people being able to view the site as easy.

    like my site 5600 hits within 7 days i have one graphic thats not even on the site yet. but, it uploads very fast for most people lol. HAVE A GOOD DAY

    Remember also that there are some people browsing just to waste time and see what's interesting on the net. And, younger kids love those fancy, schmancy extras that waste the time of more serious visitors. The internet is not all about business, research, promotion, selling or other 'serious' endeavours.

    yeah that good for kids and people wasting time etc...
    but, were i can't afford alot of web space it seems pointless for me to use alot of graphics on my site and i think i have a small trffic resource thinggy. lol. i can't really afford to do that but on my free sites i have tons of animated pics etc... and graphics just for fun.
