This location of the Radio Upstream folder is Dave's suggested location for the folder
under Mac OSX. I forget the location for windows machines.
Dave's code does take the images and move them into the proper heirarchy in the images
folder every minute. ... My www/images folder has quite a few images in it, more images
in there than posts in the other folders. ... The entire heirarchy ot the images folder need
not be scanned, just the newest folder. ... Perhaps there should be a mechanism for the
action of publishing, or the adding of an image to the Radio Upstream folder, or future
tools that handel other media types, to make a data entry into an upstreamTable. The
table gets scanned, and whatever data is in the table gets upstreamed, and removed from
the table. ...
