in reply to OT: Unique identification of a visitors pc

Don't know if it is possible to do that. You could always get $ENV{HTTP_USER_AGENT}, but that is hardly unique.

Of course, if you are doing something like trying to prevent visitors from voting in a poll more than once, you could always use cookies, but that is easy to get around anyway.
