    Hey all.

    Just a thought for all you Flash people (or Actionscript - I don't know as I have never played with Flash!), how easy is it to put a 1x1 swf that would read an external text file which contains a URL and then go get that URL?

    If thats possible, is it possible to grab a PHP file that sends back a random URL?

    If its possible, I may be looking for someone to do this for me :)

    Cheers!
