    Google for javascript random.

    This was not written by me, but was posted by Joe Greene some time ago in a
    different news group.

    Try this. I wrote a function to generate a random number:
    function Roll_Die(DSize){
    var DRoll=0;
    for (I=0;I<DSize;I++){
    } return DRoll
    Now Given the use of the above function, create an array of image
    var MyImages=new Array();

    Next assuming you are manipulating the first image on your page call this
    function to randomly change pictures.
    function RandomPix(){
    var P=Roll_Die(MyImages.length);

    You can call the function in onLoad= to only select at load time, or you
    can create another function with a setInterval() calling itself to
    randomly change images periodically. Note: if your going to change images
    at intervals it's recommened to create a hidden layer which loads them
    all, in order to minimize the lage when it changes pictures....

    The problem with a randomizer like this is that it must be hard-coded with the
    names of the images, and it increases the size of the HTML file (significantly,
    if there are many images).

    I have written a Perl random image CGI which allows you to dump images into a
    folder on the server, and grabs one of the images from that folder at random;
    in order to use it, you must (of course) have a Web host which permits you to
    use CGI scripts. It's freeware, and available for download from my Web site at

    Whoops! So it does. It's fixed now.
