Further Plans:
I don't plan on moving the code along. Its got some flaws in how it handles the database information. ex: if you have 2 identical entries, if you modify one, the first one it finds in the database will be modified. Not necessarily the one you want. Also the method that I used to move files does not use a system call to move the file, it copies the file to its destination then deletes the original. Meaning its super slow. Its not as portable as I would like. You have to install Python Card to get it to work. Though it works great despite its limitations.

Code Time:
2 days coding and 1 day bug fixing
