April 1, 2000 - Banner Types
The last banner we presented was the persistent random banner. The message displayed in this banner is determined upon loading and does not change until a further reloading of the page. The message on this page is randomly selected from a feed of preprepared messages. The selection does not need to be random, however. The banner can be programmed to display a new message every hour of the day, every day of the week, every day of the month, or just a random message every time the page loads or reloads. Obviously, if you have a long message feed and you decide to go with these persistent random messages (a new message every day of the week, for example), some messages will never show up.
