|Your "Online Museum" - On my site|

Ok, in response to Glynn's post, I reposted this with a note to say that the suggestion below, is to be hosted on my site and is not a request to consume more of Dave's site bandwidth.
I'm working on some software for some miliary friends and it occurred to me that this would be great for an online musem for your HP collection. I have a simple demo of what this will be like. All of the photos there have been uploaded by muself and some tessters.
Each person can upload photos of their collection, to the system. Photos would be stored in their own folders and they could add, subtract and edit as necessary.
The software automatically generates thumbnails of their images and displays them in an array. Clicking on any photo will bring up a larger photo (sized to fit the screen) along with information on your acquisition.
Example of typical display
Right now, there is no description capability but I will be working this weekend to integrate this with my SQL database and hopefully by the end of the weekend, I'll have something ready for test. The "View" collection screen will be completely changed. It will not be a dropdown field. Since this is going to be integrated with a database, there will be a form to search the database by username, calculator type, condition, or just about any parameter you choose.

What do you think of this idea? Suggestion? (No! I mean real suggestions)
