in reply to [OT] Update data file on accessing sound file

Yup, gotta' agree with amedico!

Forget embedding.

Put the music file on the server, use cgi to start it playing and to "generate the change to the data file...."

And now a question back: is this "change to the data file" something more complex than incrementing a counter and perhaps tracking user info (like IP, browser, etc)?
