// First run ONLY - need to create table by uncommenting this

if ($_REQUEST[completed] == 1) {
        // Need to add - check for large upload. Otherwise the code
        // will just duplicate old file ;)
        // ALSO - note that latest.img must be public write and in a
        // live appliaction should be in another (safe!) directory.
        $instr = fopen("latest.img","rb");
        $image = addslashes(fread($instr,filesize("latest.img")));
        if (strlen($instr) < 149000) {
