First things first: You need a real subject on your message. The subject
of "[CODE][NEWBIE?]" is not descriptive. For one, there was no code in the
message, and it does not describe what the message is all about. Something
like "[NEWBIE?] Spell casting delays" would be appropriate.

Anyway.... You need something like what DGEvents provides. I've not used
them myself, but others here have. I would suggest looking on the Ceramic
Mouse ( and look for them there. They may
be bundled with DGScripts, but I'm not sure.
