      The concept behind eventing is fairly simple. With eventing, you have two pieces of code. For example, you might have a script that is running based on a scheduled task. That script might encounter some condition and can raise (or signal) an event, perhaps that it has completed its work. A second bit of code, perhaps a second script running on that same system, can register for events.
