Basic Guestbook

A client of mine has a crappy Geocities Webmaster account, that doesn't allow for much.

I'm trying to build a simple guestbook for this customer, but can't use any CGI scripts, SSIs, or anything else since Geocities doesn't support it.

Does anyone know of a simple guestbook script that uses HTML and Javascript only?

I'll start at 200 points, and offer 50 points or more for usable source code.

Thanks..

There is none. To have a guestbook, you have to be able to WRITE to the files on the server. Without some kind of server side script, you can't do that.

Geocities should have a guestbook you can use. And that would be the ONLY thing you can use.

or you can use a remotely hosted guest book like:

Okay, the client has moved their website from Geocities to a real web hosting account.  Since the first question was solved on its own, I'll ask another and increase the points:

I'm trying to find a script that will append text entered into a textbox onto a list.  For example:

Entering in: "My name is Bob"
will display test.html with:
 My name is Bob
on it.

Then, entering in: "and I like sushi."
will reload test.html with:
 My name is Bob and I like sushi.
on it.

I can use CGI scripts on this new server.

Thanks.

since you can use your own CGIs now try one of these:
http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Guestbooks/

modifying the code for your custom needs (if you can't find an exact match) shouldn't be too hard with Perl.
