First of all I really like the food storage list, it looks like it really would work. Next, I tried getting the program you wrote a year ago for automating the ward directory creation. I am a programmer and currently a membership clerk for my ward and have been assigned to create a ward directory. I was hoping you could send me both the source code for the program and the compiled executable since it is no longer available from the link provided in the post.

Hi Joseph,

Thanks for pointing out that my links are out of date. I've corrected them. You can get the compiled version and the source from CodePlex.
