        It is just some PHP using the GD library.

        Use PHP to read the stats from your databse, or set it up to read from the source code of forumhome somehow. Use the GD library in PHP to write the info into an image. The script saves the image over the last one, so it updates.

          That's pretty bad eh since the image can't be cached by the browser, needs to be reloaded every page view (slow down for the 56k'ers waste of bandwidth for broadband users )
          Should only generate a new one every 10-15mins or so and make it reload from cache

          Like mine does it
