Okay, there's a bug I have to look into. It should have sent this morning but didn't.

Don't tell us that. Perception is everything.

First day there was no change in the items so no email as designed. Second day there was a bug and it didn't go out. I'm about 50% done rewriting the code to eliminate the 3rd party which is what caused the bug. They crashed and their service is still down so obviously not something I can rely on. I'm hoping to have it done tonight but we will see. I'm not a full on programmer so it takes me about 10x longer than someone who knows what they're doing.

I will post an update.

What language are you writing in? If it's .net/C#, I don't mind helping contribute if you throw it up on Git hub.

Okay, I think we're good. No more 3rd party and it is checking for updates hourly. The email will have up to 120 items, but only new ones that were added. Hopefully

This is kind of like live test development so if it screws up, I apologize. It was stable until the 3rd party provider went down and I don't want to keep you guys hanging any longer since the whole "here it is, whoops no it isn't" thing. So please bear with me if something funny happens.

Next thing I'll working on is adding images to it if this is stable.

JJ, I'm doing it in PHP since that's what I'm familiar with and I have 2 programmers who can build on it from there (most likely shaking their head and rebuilding the whole thing after they see my "code" I really do appreciate the offer to help though.

Well it should be working again. I went ahead and added the images plus pricing into it because those are pretty important and I was already under the hood.

So here's what it's supposed to look like but may show up with different items / order. The first run may grab everything on that page (currently) and any new items they add before the send time so it should be at least 30 items. After this, it should only grab new items, however many there are of those.

If it looks way broken for you, let me know. In that case, a screenshot along with info on what email client you're using would be very helpful.
