Anyone know exactly what to do in order to be able to activate the factory
foglights w/o turning on the headlights?

You would have to somehow bipass the relay thet is in the fuse/relay block
in the engine compartment...this relay is what is used to make them turn on
only with the low beams. I think that the easiest way would be to rewire
the fog lights with an aftermarket wiring harness for off road lights and
use the factory switch. Pep Boys sells just this type of harness for about
$20. I don't think that there is an easy way to use the existing wiring
from the truck unless you can get a goos schematic haynes
book doesn't even show the fogs in its diagrams.

Check the legality of this before you do this also...I'm pretty sure it's
not legal to have your fog lights on with any other light setting than with
the low beams in my neck of the woods....That doesn't mean that the
rice-boys in their rice-rockets don't run around in the daylight with fogs
on around here.

I've finally got the survey results working. Rather than continue
to use the brain-dead CGI script for results (it was giving very
bizarre results) I wrote a C++ program that sorts a 450k file
into survey percentages and builds a 300k+ HTML result file.
Your browser displays this file. Fairly quick considering that
its doing about several million parses (takes about 10 seconds) on
a multi-user Sun Workstation. This is a beta version. Although
I've been programming for years this is my first complete dynamic
web content program. It took about 1 day of coding. I think most
everyone will like it. It will be greatly enhanced over the course
of the weekend, with sorting and better catagorization.

Give it a try (its not directly linked on the web site so you
have to use this URL):

Let me know what you think and give me any suggestions.

I'm also working on a program which will allow password protected
access to the web site. This will allow me to give free web
space to users, within reason. Lastly, I hope to replace the
Java chat server with my own C/C++ program. Both these projects
are considerably harder than the survey program.
