[allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: whee... [allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: i’ve been given a job to put a simple email address subscription form on a site [Harkins]{style=”color: blue”}: sounds pretty easy [allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: and... as far as i can tell, the server has neither php nor perl :P [allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: i’m running out of options :P [Harkins]{style=”color: blue”}: cgi, baby [allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: for db access?
[Harkins]{style=”color: blue”}: Or change the target of the form to a server you control running PHP/perl that saves the data and redirects back to the other server. [allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: yeah...
[allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: but i really don’t want to commit any of our server resources to their site :P [BSDCat]{style=”color: green”}: I think a ‘simplicity’ fairy just lost its wings [Harkins]{style=”color: blue”}: Or make the form GET and write a cron job to scrape access.log. [allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: ... [allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: wow. [Harkins]{style=”color: blue”}: Yes, I’m evil. [allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: it’s beautiful really [Harkins]{style=”color: blue”}: bwa [allaryin]{style=”color: red”}: but yes, evil
