What I am trying to acomplish is..
I have a site that consists of 10 people they use webcam32 to take pics and upload at an interval. I am trying to create a page that checks the picture files and determines if the user is online and somehow show they are online (displaying a still with there name as link). The files are overwritten everytime a new pic is uploaded and the images run at a 1 second interval so I thought it would be easy to check if the file was recently modified. Would I be better doing this in another language like cgi ??
Thanks for any pointers or ideas
