Life and Programming Tidbits

I'm going to let you guys in on some updates on our life and some programming tips.

Last week my in-law's dog had to be put to sleep. Tuesday, this week, my wife's grandmother's dog had to be put to sleep. Being that we're a tight knit family, this has been hard.
Last night, Wednesday, we found out my father in-law's brain tumor is still growing, and there is a second one up there. They may try to operate if it has not spread to other parts of the body.
On the bright side, we will be moving from a 2 bedroom basement apartment to a 2 story half a house. A witness couple owns the building, and live in the other side. It will be more room for less money. And, we will be within minutes of where Steph works and the Kingdom Hall.

I'm working on a web page and windows service team. The web page takes information from a photographer about images they will post on our FTP server. The windows service will sit on the server, and watch for this information to be posted to the database server. It will then take the images, and resize them twice. One copy for thumbnails, and one for previewing. It will then activate the images on the website, and the photographer can group and adjust the images as much as he wants.

For info on windows services click here. It's very educational, and I'll be putting it on my Tech Links page.
