As far as I know there is no way to set a site-wide global from within a
script.  Use PHP Sessions or set a Cookie and then print the variable in any
script you want by calling $_SESSION['first'] or $COOKIES['first'];.  But
you'll need a starting point for your visitors in order for this to work.

If your visitors will be accessing scripts at random you can do an
include(""); at the top of each script, where ''
accesses the database and sets the $first variable each time a script is
