Okay, my mistake. I did not know you can see the time of each message.

As far as textfields are concerned, I'm still making mistakes; I just thought by switching to textarea, I could prevent some of those mistakes.

About the character limit, why can't you use Javascript to alert if the input exceeds 255 characters?

    Because those who maintain the site don't like javascript. There are a whole lot of security implications to jumping around the internet with a browser that has javascript enabled.

    90% of every Perl application is already written.
