I wish someone would create something like this for each day of the week but I doubt the programmer would be willing to part with the algorithm he used.

I guess we'll just have to wait in suspense to find out.

fortunately, for my purposes, knowing friday vs !friday was sufficient. I have not researched the availability of other days of the week. I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to write something that checked this page once a day, to establish 'fridayness', then keep a log of the results. you could, with sufficient analysis, come up with an algorithm to determine the current day of the week based upon how many days had passes since the last successful establishment of 'fridayness', although i imagine it would be rather complicated. Good Luck!!!
