Not ignored Lian. That idea is great but only if you are 100% sure that
your site is going to have at least one visitor per day. If you want to
setup a script like that in your pet's dedicated page, which maybe will
not have that many visitors at first, you will probably miss a lot of
appointments. In the other hand, if Hotmail or Yahoo want to do that...
fine... I think they WILL have at least ONE visitor per day for sure.
