Hi,

i have seen web sites that randomly play a sound file stored on the server.  Can anyone provide me with a script or something that would let me do that!  Thanks.

Please explain how the script works as well.  I am curious.

Here is the script you requested.  Just copy and paste into your web
page.

<SCRIPT>
nummidi = 10
day = new Date()
z = day.getTime()
y = (z-(parseInt(z/1000,10)*1000))/10
x = parseInt(y/100*nummidi,10)+1
if (x == (1))
midi=(“4seasons.mid”)
if (x == (2))
midi=(“barberofseville.mid”)
if (x == (3))
midi=(“beeth5thsymp.mid”)
if (x == (4))
midi=(“fotbb.mid”)
if (x == (5))
midi=(“ithotmk.mid”)
if (x == (6))
midi=(“mars.mid”)
if (x == (7))
midi=(“moonlightsonata.mid”)
if (x == (8))
midi=(“puttinontheritz.mid”)
if (x == (9))
midi=(“thesting.mid”)
if (x == (10))
midi=(“rocky.mid”)

document.write(‘<p><EMBED SRC= ‘  + midi +  ‘ AUTOSTART=”TRUE”
HIDDEN=”TRUE”></p>’)
</script>

To use it, simply replace the names of the midi files with the ones you want.  Make sure the numidi = 10 line equals the number of midis you have below it.  Those are the only things you need to know to use it.

If you want to see its implementation, visit:

and make sure your speakers are on.  Hopefully you like more-or-less classical music :)

Have fun!

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure how it works, I got it from a friend of mine who works on web pages a lot.  I just did what he told me to do and it worked!
