Long DescriptionThe machines at the center of the information age have revolutionized our lives and digitalized our world, making previously unthinkable tasks automatic and linking people from around the planet. MODERN MARVELS presents a fascinating exploration into the history of the computer. See Charles Babbage's Victorian "counting machine," a mechanical computer that produced perfect results for any mathematical problem of six figures or less, and discover how IBM was launched through a punch-card counting machine built to accelerate the 1890 census. Trace the technological advancements that led to the first modern computers and witness the rapid progress that allowed them to shrink from room-sized monsters to the desktop units that revolutionized life in the '90s. THE CREATION OF THE COMPUTER journeys into the fast-paced world of technology and innovation to expose the phenomenal history of the most influential invention of modern times.

For a couple months, we have been working on a major revamp of the database. All the existing data will be saved of course but many new data elements will be created.

People have been asking for the ability to track nutritional information, ingredients and other data items related to various products.

To this point, we have not been able to track that information because of a limit imposed by the database layout. Adding these new fields would be very hard.

We have finally gotten the database into the correct shape for the new fields and many many more in the future. We will be able to track just about any type of data item for any given product type.

It may be a few more months before the input screens catch up to the database changes. We want the user interface to be smooth and easy to use. Using feedback we have already received about the current site we will be making changes to the input process.

We also need to take into account the existing applications that are using the existing data feed and we will also need to create a new updated data feed for people moving forward.

In short, big changes are coming now that the database has been revamped but all the existing functions will continue to work without interuption.
