Does anyone know? Quickly?
An insect of the order Ephemeroptera, commonly called the mayfly. It is so named for its short life span, that is, ephemeral.
Ok, so any clue on why would I want to set a new one up on a website? Possibility to add the day, month, year, or to delete one. Think Italian maybe? That's what the directions and thingies are written in originally.
da Gina, there's got to be a disconnect here.
DocCas is correct that an ephemerid is a mayfly, but I don't think you're talking about mayflies.
There's a band named Ephemerid, and software that displays the date and time in a pop-up window or that otherwise keeps track of time.
Another usage: "What are Ephemerids? Ephemerids are essentially a "This Day In History" events. Some sites will be happy to have Ephemerids to inform visitors as to what has happened in the past on this day."

THANK YOU RSR! At least now I know it won't bite me. LOL I was feeling outta control with that big word sitting there glaring at me in the middle of the panel,lookin' all smart and makin' me feel dumb.
How did you come to install it?
Had me scared there for a minute.
There's also a astrological meaning I've not yet been able to pin down.
Well, an ephemeris is a table of positions of the planets or stars or something out there in space. Useful for pointing your telescope, or if you are susceptible to pagan superstitions, analyzing your horoscope.
Unfortunately, I've found sites that use "Emphemerid" for "Ephemeris." Hence my confusion.
