  • Background
    Microsoft Access is a commonly used database application in many small businesses. Access suffers from many performance problems, however, as the amount of data in a database grows. As a result, many businesses are finding that they are trapped; they cannot afford to install Microsoft SQL Server and there is no easy way to migrate to a free database application, such as MySQL. Some free programs exist to perform this transfer, however, I have found that they do not transfer... Read More

    The Magic Act, Inc. is a hair salon in Marion, NC. They currently keep track of their clients via a scheduling book.

  • Background
    Having family in the construction business, I have had the chance to spend most of my summers, and any extra time, working in that industry. I do spend a good bit of that time running around picking up and dropping off material for projects. During this time, I met the owners of Kitchens by Design and watched how they tracked their inventory. I asked them if I could create a system that would allow them to use their time more productively.

  • Overview:
    Computer owners are often surprised to see what websites have been visited by another user. Usually just attempting to view the web history is impossible because the user deleted it. With IE Logger, the owner can start the application, then hide it so that the user will not know that their web history is being logged.

    IE Logger uses C++. I chose C++ because it is the language that I was least experienced in. I wanted a challenge where I had to learn many... Read More
