Raising the dead...

I've been resurrecting a Database I wrote about 10 years back (and have been tacking on additions to ever since). I wrote it so long ago that it assumes register_globals = on - so I was faced with either running an old version of PHP just for it or updating it to do things properly (i.e., use superglobals instead).

I figured I'd get out my (metaphorical) shovel and at least kludge together something to have it running until I knuckle down an re-write the front-end - which means it's now full of $variable = $_REQUEST['variable'] lines...

It's actually been kind of fun going through something I wrote so long ago, full of things I'd never do if I was writing it today and a few things I'd actually forgotten how to implement.



Still works!
