Jax for Macs

Timothy.Plante@uvm.edu called me about a goofy "petition" script he was trying to install at http://www.uvm.edu/mac/ to support on on-line petition drive. He downloaded Download Jax Petitionbook from Jax Petitionbook (GPL)* , which is a badly hacked version of Jax Guestbook (GPL)* version 3.07. It was tricky to install, and displayed menus in German, not English. The "most current" version worked better, but still required some PHP hacking to make go. After dinking around with it for a while, I got it to work here. But then Tim wrote me

Thanks for trying to help me yesterday. I tried to pull apart the PHP script and found that it was all in german. The script was made from a different script and I think the language selection mechanism is remenance of that original script and therefore doesn’t actually change a thing.

This morning I found a new script that takes information and generates an email to be sent out. It works pretty well. Check it out at http://www.uvm.edu/~mac/pledge

thanks for all of your help yesterday!

Oh, well…
