andiharper,

Do you have the last login date in a database?  If so, then do you need the script to find the date the page was last modified and compare the two or how will you get the last modified date?  If the script needs to do it then you can use the File System Object.  For example ...

Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.GetFile("c:\path\to\filename.txt")
If DateDiff("d", DateFromDB, objFile.DateLastModified) > 0 then
  ' display the page
End if

That is just an example of what you can use.  Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.
