    Wow, we’re on your last podcast! Very cool.
    Just wanted to let you know that the Google Analytics idea is now in use thanks to your discussion in the last broadcast. Thanks!
    I have a question, perhaps already answered in a past podcast: Are there resources for creating interactive registration forms and/or surveys on our site? We have a feedback form from a sample PHP on our site, but I don’t know how to expand it for use as a registration form for Vacation Bible School and things like that. Come to think of it, I might be filling out an ASP or PHP form right now.

    Thanks again!
