Hey, Dan, as I've told you before, I'm considering having a second website to focus on one of my particular interests. I'm not even sure if I'll go through with it at all, but if I do, I might have polls/surveys available on there. The website, which I'm modeling my conceptional website after, used forms in HTML for polls and .CGI files. I can figure out how to script the form part, though I'm a little unsure about what to do with the .CGI. Doesn't it kind of have to fit the particular server it's on? And also, how would I store poll/survey data and possibly display it on a graph or database?

By the way, I've recently become interested in learning scripting for webpages. Might be kind of neat to try out.

.cgi and other forms of scripting are server side, meaning they will not work on your home computer. Contact me via PM, with a username and pass to get access to one of my servers. PHP is very much supported, but make sure you are coding for php5 specifically 5.3, 4 scripts WILL NOT WORK. Most tutuorials are for 5 now though. cgi is perl, XD.
