Notes from Harold:

The code in these files is heavily commented.
If you want to see what something does check out the comments around a section.
If you feel you need more information on a particular section feel free to email me at hide@address.com and ask for clarification.
Please be as precise as possible on what section you need help with.

You are free to modify these scripts as you like, if you do anything really cool I'd like to see it so I can determine whether it would be worthwhile to add this to the distribution.

Some important notes:
1. If you want to secure the adminpage look in admin.php for instructions!
2. See also the $timezone variable in write_xml.php, line 7 if you're not in Europe!
