  1. Richard,

    I was wondering whether you have ever seen a similar calendar type of thing only where you could put in events and times and such… I am looking for something like that, but haven’t been able to find anything. Thanks

  2. Mootools are going to get a lead, and lead on lead, and then a lead by producing such beautiful development kits, and it is nice to know that they are free. MooTools rocks. I tried to use it in my wordpress sidebar but nothing happens.
