Don't sound so offended man,

ABSOLUTLY NO-ONE READS ANYTHING YOU POST HERE.

It's amazing we figured out as much as we did about the post while quickly scrolling down so we didn't have to look at it anymore (Those speed reading classes really paid off :wink: ).

Shit! Yeah, I forgot!

Dude, plug your speaker/walkman headphones into the microphone jack...

the sensitivity might be lower, but it does work (and microphones work as speakers aswel if you don't beleive me, it's easier to test that)

Get a tape recorder, record the sound, go to a cyber cafe/friends house/rent a recording studio of 30 seconds, record the sound into a wav file, then stick it up here.

Go a little out of your way (I'm not saying buy a new computer w/a microphone), and we'll be able to help.

The TIMER function returns the current time of day, in seconds.

if you save the value of TIMER when the football game starts, then using simple arithmatic it's possible to find out how long the game's been going on, and to save game progress and restore later.
