If owning your own business means having soooo much free time to spend in here then i'm all for it holo!!

what makes you say that I have so much free time to spend in here?
and what makes you think it takes so much time to be here. -- one click, five minutes, a few times a day. It's a nice break from work without losing the cognitive priming.

Holo has his own business, so there are probably days when he barely has enough time to eat or sleep.

This is one very interesting thread that I've been following since it began. I just wanted to inject an interesting aside in relation to what Terry Young has posted (# 36) about the drpeterjones.com material. We have a client who uses the techniques (and more) shown in the code that ChrisRickard posted from the drpeterjones site to protect their proprietary data available from their web site (though not the HTML or JS code I hasten to add).
This organisation is in the business of selling GIS data that is sometimes represented as images so they also do things like force a copy of other material (a junk image) into the clipboard in order that a ctrl-v won't paste their image (it's not the first in line). This won't stop anyone who knows how to access the clipboard of course but it does deter 99% of most users from acquiring the image. They have other techniques as well, that are more subtle. The interesting point though, is that they do indeed have all of these techniques throughout all of the site, which is very well used and respected here, and quite simple for their mainstream user base to utilise. The site in question is fully dynamic, and has a very large number of virtual pages.

sifty, I've never seen a more pointless post.

you can only do it by server-sided script, like PHP.
End of This ignorant discussion.

Well, that's the fun all gone out of it ;-)
