Does anyone know how to do a POST command (to a CGI
script) from within an ASP page and then parse the return
string that is in "text/plain" format? Many thanx in

You might want to check out Tucows:

I pay $21.95/mo for 10 GB/mon transfer and 100 MB SQL Server and
200 MB disk. Their support team is quick and effective. My
entirely ASP/SQL site is hosted there:

http://www.horseshowtime.com

And it works a whole lot better thanks to your FAQ and this
group. The site serves 8000 pages/day except during December and
January.

I need a dedicated SQL Server, and there are plenty of hosts out there but
the switch just isn't as trivial as you might think...

Anyway, site's back up now.

ASPFAQ could easily be a static HTML site, of course. Much cheaper and
more responsive.

And I _still_ think you should publish the book!8-))

Good Luck,

Oh yes, of course. But then it wouldn't really be demonstrating ASP
technology, now, would it? :-)

To be quite honest, this new version actually has a feature to build a
separate HTML file out of each article. I'm having trouble deciding how to
offer it as an *option*, however, because I like the fact that I can track
usage, and the new feedback options I have at the bottom of the articles.

In the meantime, if you want it to be static, download the PDF, which is
usually stale about 12 to 24 hours after it's been posted. (I only bother
updating it about once a week.)
And I _still_ think you should publish the book!8-))


Me too. If you know of any publishers you can strongarm into signing me,
I'll more than gladly switch to HTML for your benefit. :-)

But then he'd have to rename it
"HTML FAQ" :)
