Re: [code] Looking for:

If I wanted to ask someone to straight forward code something, I would
have blatantly asked, "Hey can someone do this, this, and this for me."

What Im getting at, which you more than likely didnt'nt understand is
Im asking "IF" anyone has done these features before, "AND" to point
me in the right direction of "WHERE" they got it from.

Last thing I want is someone writing something for me. It teaches me
nothing. Im just confused as to what should be edited.
