I noticed on Littlegamers them menioning a new tracking thingy that plots visitors on google maps. looks quite fun to play with :)

I signed up ( ) and got sent a PHP script i need to include in the page somewhere, this is where i got lost :$

To install delineate, you will need to download the client file. The client is currently only available for PHP driven websites. ASP, JSP and coldfusion will be supported in the future. 
There are three variations, each that use different methods of accessing the delineate server, and their usage depends on your PHP hosting configuration. The URL for the client is, (or delineate_02.php.txt or delineate_03.php.txt).
Once you have downloaded the client, remove the .txt extension and upload to your website server. We recommend that you leave the file in your server document root, (normally httpdocs or wwwroot) and include the file in each page you wish to track using the following code, within the HTML head elements:
@include_once($_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"] . "/delineate_01.php");
You will need to add your user key (at the top of this email) to the client file

How would i go about adding that in? i'm very lost in anything except standard HTML. PHP and perl scare me :D

i'll only be adding to me test board to begin with, so don't panic ^^

Seeing as how Kareha and Wakaba are both staunchly Perl-driven, you'd need a total rewrite of the script(s) in order to get them working on a board like this.

Depends. If you can modify it to take GET or POST arguments, you can just stick it in somewhere.

Or you could get it to accept command line arguments.

Ugh, that is some horribly written code. I'd make some snide remark about PHP coders, but...

Anyway, that thing sends the IP of every person who posts to some unaccountable third party's server. That does not seem like something I'd want to do on any board I run, and I don't think any of my users would like it either.

Bleh, never thought of it that way :D

I shall give it a miss then

It's a cool idea, but until they make the IP lookup happen in on the client side, or even better, distribute the whole system and not just the small client bit, so that you can run it on your own server, it seems a bit reckless to use it.

Oh, come on. You can't think that 200+ character lines is anything but bad.

Why is >>10 talking to himself?

He was dropped on the head as a child. We try not to mention this, and to look past his failings.
