This brings up a separate question unrelated to a home page timer 
function.  Are all the Web users in-house on the LAN?  Or are they 
also coming in via TCP connections from elsewhere?  In either (or 
both) cases, how are these Windows (and perhaps DOS?) programs going 
to be presented to users of a Web browser?  Unless I misread, this is 
a distinctly non-trivial enterprise, though one with high utility.  
In short, how will this work?
