I would like to emulate the windows messenger services popups. This is: A javascript alert message with user IP adress, date and hour. I think is necessary first to detect the user info
with PHP or ASP for example, and then display the alert message.

OK, I need to display randomly this kind of javascript alert messages:

function alertPopup1() {
alert("Message from HAPPY HOLYDAYS to 80.25.84.74 - 16/10/2003 10:15:36\n\nHello!\n\nThere is an incredible holydays offer on our page:     \n\nhttp://www.happyholydays.com/\n\nEnjoy the life!");
}

I also would like to display the messages with
a random delay of 2-30 min.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Here's an example :

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
<!--
function get_random(maxNum)
{
  if (Math.random && Math.round)
  {
    var ranNum= Math.round(Math.random()*(maxNum-1));
    ranNum+=1;
    return ranNum;
  }
  else
  {
  today= new Date();
  hours= today.getHours();
  mins=   today.getMinutes();
  secn=  today.getSeconds();
  if (hours==19)
   hours=18;
  var ranNum= (((hours+1)*(mins+1)*secn)%maxNum)+1;
  return ranNum;
  }
}

function getaQuote()
{
 var maxQuotes=10;
 var whichQuote=get_random(maxQuotes);
 whichQuote--;

var quote=new Array(maxQuotes)
   quote[0]="Quote #1";
   quote[1]="Quote #2";
   quote[2]="Quote #3";  
   quote[3]="Quote #4";
   quote[4]="Quote #5";
   quote[5]="Quote #6";
   quote[6]="Quote #7";
   quote[7]="Quote #8";
   quote[8]="Quote #9";
   quote[9]="Quote #10";

alert(quote[whichQuote]);
}
//-->
</SCRIPT>
<FORM name="form1">
<INPUT TYPE="button" value="Get a Quote!" onClick="getaQuote()">
</FORM>

All right !! thank you so much. Only a question more about this script.

Once more, thanks.

Ok here's how u'll do it.

-----for displaying the ip of the visitor :

<script language="javascript">
var ip = '<!--#echo var="REMOTE_ADDR"-->'

function ipval() {
document.myform.ipaddr.value=ip;
}
window.onload=ipval
</script>

<form method="post" action="" name="myform">
  <input type="text" name="ipaddr" readonly>
</form>

in order to get this function to work your web srver must run ssi(most web servers do that by default)

---for displaying the date :

<script language="JavaScript">
HoldDate=new Date();
document.write(HoldDate.getDate() + "/" + (HoldDate.getMonth()+1) + "/" + HoldDate.getYear());
</script>

---for displaying the time :
<script type="text/javascript">
var d = new Date()
document.write(d.getHours())
document.write(":")
document.write(d.getMinutes())
document.write(":")
document.write(d.getSeconds())
</script>

I'm giving you the general code of the scripts,u r the one that should put all these together.
