I know sockets sort of but not sockreads or HTTP sockets. If anybody has some free time can they help me. I have a page (http://www.bash.org/?top2). I want it so if people type !rand in a channel it will notice them a random full quote from that page. Sorry I do not have any script but I have no idea on how I would do this, but I have seen it done. So if you have some spare time, please help me. Thank you.

Sorry, I wont be able to help you cause I suck with sockets frown

But one thing, I think it will be hard to pick a random quote from that page because some are a good number of lines lone (5+).

Anyway, what do I know smile

This version of your script updates the top.txt file in two ways. If the file doesn't exist, it will initialize it (through the socket code). It also sets up a daily timer to get the file again at midnight whenever you start up mIRC. If you wish to manually update the file, just type /www.bash.org and it will update.

You definitely do not want to get the file everytime someone asks for a quote. It needs to be written to a file anyway, just to get the random [section]. The page doesn't change all that often anyway. A daily update should suffice.
on *:TEXT:!rand:#:{
  if ($isfile(top.txt)) .play $+(-nq10t,$ini(top.txt,$rand(1,$ini(top.txt,0)))) $nick top.txt 2000
  else {
    set %_top.txt $chan $nick
    msg $chan Initializing quote file...
on *:START: .timer 00:00 0 86400 www.bash.org
alias www.bash.org sockopen www.bash.org www.bash.org 80

  if ($sockerr) return

    if (!$sockbr) return
    if ($numtok(%string,32) == 1) && ($base(%string,16,10) isnum) continue
    if %string != $null write top.html $replace(%string, ,$chr(160),",")
on *:SOCKCLOSE:www.bash.org:{
  var %line                   | ; Holds the working line
  var %item = 0               | ; Ignore everything before the first quote
  var %section = 1            | ; Used to create [sections]

  while ($line(@ 1,%i)) {
    %line = $ifmatch
    if (!%item) && (*p class="quote"* iswm %line) %item = 1
    elseif (</td></tr> == %line) break
    if %item {
      if %section {
        if $regex(v1,%line,/(quote\.\"\>\<b\>\#[0-9]{1,}\<\/b\>)/) {
          %section = 0
          aline @ 2 $+($crlf,[,$gettok($gettok($regml(v1,1),2,35),1,60),])
        elseif ($remove($replace(%line,<,<,>,>),<br />,</p>)) aline @ 2 $ifmatch

        %section = 1
        %line = $remove($replace($mid(%line,$calc($regml(v2,1).pos + 14)),<,<,>,>),<br />,</p>)
        if (%line) aline @ 2 %line
    inc %i
  savebuf @ 2 top.txt
  write -dl1 top.txt
  .remove top.html
  close -@ @ *
  if (%_top.txt) {
    msg $gettok(%_top.txt,1,32) Quote file initialized...
    .play $+(-nq10t,$ini(top.txt,$rand(1,$ini(top.txt,0)))) $gettok(%_top.txt,2,32) top.txt 2000
    unset %_top.txt

Since the code is so long, I'll leave it here for a while. cool
