Re: [BackpackGearTest] Re: Database complete as of 12/27/01
- Good thoughts...
I meant to do this earlier but forgot... I actually changed the name of the
database table and used the description field for the date.
I think we'll just have to maintain the table as best we can but
periodically go through the entire Files section and just make sure
everything jives... As Jerry says, there are people who upload files
without sending them to the list. No way to prevent that but we hope
everything goes to the list before it's uploaded.
P.S. Already we've moved a doggy pack from the Packs section to the Animal
section and I haven't updated that yet... Oops! :-)
