Hey Stuart -
RTFM yourself....I did read it, and obviously misunderstood...
I'm really sorry to bother you. I thought that was what a listserv like this
was for - to ask questions...
I'll try not to ask questions I should know the answer to next time.

The strtotime function will give you a timestamp, getdate will give
you an array, so your comparison is non-sensical. Use the time
function to get the current date/time as a timestamp.
