NEW: Status Scroller Update

Ok folks...

I've written a new version of the scroller that *should* be friendly to
everybody's memory regardless of platform.  The code is very easy to
understand, and it is much smaller than the other ones I've seen around.

I created the new scroller() function with an object oriented approach.  All
veriables are GLOBAL, so there's no more creating local strings that have
'Garbage Collection' problems.


Please take a look at it and give me feedback.  Feel free to use it on your
own sites.  I'm in the process of adding features to it that will be
included in a adv_scroller() function which will allow for links on the page
to temporarily suspend the scroller for a set amount of milliseconds (among
other features).

Conceptually it should work well, although I've only tested it on Win95.
