yes, it uses passthru() but I didn't know it doesn't work with every
server, since I've it running on 2 Linux servers & worked fine at first

I'm not comparing the two plugins, both work well for me & I use both of
on different blogs. what I meant when I suggested a look at that hack
in Skippy's plugin, everything's on one page, while in that hack,
