  1. Anyone know of a good scrolling text software available? You know, like you see at the bottom of the screen on CNN or ESPN? I'm looking one that's not a news feed, but you generate your own text for the scrolling bar.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks Matthew - looking for something a little more robust. I need a package where multiple people from different consoles can update the scrolling text. It's for an Emergency Management plan.

    It sounds like you might want something like a "news ticker" type deal.

    I've plugged in a few on websites in the past, but I like jquery so I'll suggest this one: http://www.jquerynewsticker.com/

    Thanks Rick - that's closer to what I'm looking for. Lemme tinker with that for a bit.
