Scroller and backend

Quite simple really; I'm looking for a vertical scroller which is cross browser compatible (90%+) and controlled via a backend.

**In detail:**

The backend should be capable of archiving past news messages and have the ability to recall them and put them back into current circulation. The other sites which are displaying the scroller should all start at article1 and progress to article2 on day two of their membership and article3 on day 3 etc.... Each days article needs to be able to have the filename changed in the backend to whatever I wish the scroller to load for a certain day.

So every new member will start on article1 and progress onward, while member x who joined 4 days ago is on article4. I guess this will be handled by the username passed as a variable so this will need to be generated in the member section. The scroller needs to be changed via the backend, variables such as height, width, scrollspeed, scroll direction, background colour, border width, border colour etc...

The scroller needs to read each article from a html or xml file into the scroller from it's corresponding filename as mentioned above.

The membership side will need to be coded also, nothing fancy, just a sign up page and some way the admin can alter details and delete/add members.

**Now for the scroller itself:

**

It needs to be able to scroll up and down (backend controlled), have adjustable scroll speeds, and the ability to pause ANY message via a command in the actual message. i.e.

**_article1_**

part 1 scrolls, part 2 scrolls, part 3 pauses for defined amount and then scrolls, part 4 scrolls.

so I can pause a specific part of the message for advertising purposes by means of a command.

The scroller needs to be called via javascript NOT SSI or PHP and preferably coded in perl for a UNIX server. It will need to be installed on my server.
