It keeps cutting it off the url at about the <?php echo ltrim when displayed in the <a href=<?php echo $url ?>>
if (substr($misc,0,1) == 'g')
	$url = 'org.php?id=<?php echo ltrim($misc,"g")?>&amp;ts=<?php echo $time?>&amp;h=<?php echo md5($misc.$time.$secret); ?>';
	else
	$url='pro.php?id=<?php echo ltrim($misc,"u")?>&amp;ts=<?php echo $time?>&amp;h=<?php echo md5($misc.$time.$secret); ?>';

// MAYBE LIKE THIS?
   $url  = 'org.php?id=';
   $url .= ltrim($misc,"g");
   $url .= '&ts=';
   $url .= $time;
   $url .= '&h=';
   $url .= md5($misc.$time.$secret);
 
// SEE THE RESULT
   print_r($url);

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Great!  I always find that simple statements are easier to write and debug compared to compound statements.  This usually leads to two responses.  One is from new programmers. They say, "but that's so simple..."  The other is from experienced programmers.  They say, "Very clear..."  Either way, I save a lot of time debugging!
