Part II of Moving Pictures with Sinatra

Moving Pictures with Sinatra, Part II

In part I we set up a Sinatra site to read pictures from a directory. Now, we are going create a form to upload pictures, along with tests to make sure it works.

Make a website that displays pictures from a directory.  Sinatra would work well for this.

My Blood Letting.

I went to give blood today. I've done this before so it's nothing new.
Stats before we started 135/85 pulse 76.
I wasn't sure about the nurse. She made me nervous. We started anyway. After I few minutes I started feeling bad. I asked them to stop and I need to lay down. Ice packs were deployed. I think I remember everything but I'm not sure. Finally asked to lay flat on the floor. They carefully got me on the floor. After a few minutes, I guess, I started feeling better. I heard somebody say "He's opening his eyes." Then I started making jokes. "He's ok." Then they took my blood pressure. 
98/66 pulse 47 after I "felt better" but still lying on the floor. 
106/72 pulse 53 after a few minutes sitting back in the chair. 
I'm still in chair some 40 minutes later. I feel ok but not ready to stand up.
