custom dogs update

custom dogs v2 is almost ready to go. I'll be placing it live after I pretty it up a little.

much of the work being done is trying to unwind the rather poor design.

Part of the problem is the dogs database itself,
it has 122 columns, which makes it incredibly slow ( as you know!)

the next problem lies in the way the data itself is stored.

it stores file names, instead of IDs.

this means files cannot be easily updated, moved around, means for poor readability, etc.

the custom tool itself was also unfinished (as far as I can tell), and parts of the old code contained both server security flaws and bugs in dog generation!

anyhow. most of that is fixed.

one thing that I have to do as an adjunct to custom dogs, is the kennel

preview pics have no way to be easily redrawn to handle errors. and additionally, I'd like to store things like the type of coat, markings ,etc, as opposed to the file itself.

so
1: there needs to be a dog renderer, which can take file names, OR ids.

2: the image preview should be regenerated from the database from time to time.

after all this is done, the tool itself will still need a remodel at a later date, but I'm unable to make significant database changes until all the remaining alacrity code base has been unwound and cleaned up, so I have a solid idea of what programs use what databases etc.
