I am very interested in a gradebook program.

Our school uses a stand alone gradebook (Grade Machine) . Even though I am
the technology coordinator I do not use it because I also teach in several
different classrooms, with several different kinds of computers (Mac, Win
and Linux) and need flexibility. So I use a Paalm pilot with a spreadsheet
that I upload to a PC.

I would like a Web Based grade machine that is run on the server and can be
accessed from any platform with a web browser. I have tried starting one
with php/postgresql and then another with asp/msaccess .. but I am a self
taught amateur programmer who already works 2 jobs for one salary (not to
mention 4 kids at home :) ) ... so when the going gets tough, I cuddle up
with my youngest ...

A debugged program is one for which you have not yet found the conditions
that make it fail.
