When opening the program for the first time ever, it should open a dialog box asking the user to log in. They will have already registered on the website. The program should check the user has entered correct information with a MYSQL database stored on the server. It (the program) should then sit in the background/tray and count (and only count) the number of keys pressed on the local computer. Every hour, it should pass the value of the keys pressed in the last hour to a PHP script on the web server (after checking the correct username and password has been entered, of course) and then reset the counter to zero. The PHP script on the web server will update the MYSQL database with the number of keys pressed in the last hour as well as the total number of keys pressed by the user. I am coding the PHP script - it is your job to code the application that sits on a clients pc. Please note that this is NOT a keylogger - it should count key presses and only key presses. It should not save keystrokes to a text file or anything "shady" like that.
