you can use the flash date class if you're will to accept the user's system clock to determine the date or you must use server-side scripting if you want something more accurate/reliable.
Thanks Kglad, do you know of any working examples that do this?
I'm ok with using the user's system clock, it not something that will need to be super accurate, as I'd only have to track the day ie. Oct. 1st, Oct. 2nd, etc....
If there's something out there that can help me figure out how to accomplish this, I'd greatly appreciate it, since I've spent a lot of time searching and can't find anything.
var d:Date=new Date();
// d.getMonth() is the zero-based month (0,..,11) and
// d.getDate() is the date (1,..,31)
