New and improved downloads for the Assignment Calculator!

Matthew Decker of Wayne State University has taken the time to rewrite some of the code for the Assignment Calculator in order to make it easier to install for everyone. We have now replaced the old versions of the AC downloads with Matt's new versions.

The biggest change in Matt's new versions is that he changed the appropriate variables througout the code to specifically pull from GET or POST allowing global variables to be off. This was a common problem caused by the fact that the original AC was written with global variables turned on. Many institutions install PHP without global variables turned on for security reasons. The U of M Libraries was not one of those institutions!

So, a special thanks to Matt Decker for reworking and improving the code for all! Thanks a million Matt!
