I was afraid of that. I never subscribed to that forum so didn't realize there were posts in it. I have subscribed now so it shouldn't happen again. (Thanks to my editor Bob for noticing that I wasn't subscribed.)

I don't know all of the details of your program but sometimes it's nice to have the separation provided by files or a database between two very different processes such as a web application and a program. It may seem clunky but the separation can make managing the two pieces a lot easier. (This is the idea behind multi-tier applications, although the separation might not be as wide.)

Anyway, I'm glad you figured it out and I promise to get back to you sooner in the future!
