I suspected this was the case, the current UI isn't very appealing, but at least it is functional for development
...not that I'm artistic enough to come up with much better!
As for the photos, I'm going to give another plug for Gallery2 (http://gallery.menalto.com/
)- the web interface is great for sharing photos with friends and family, it has a number of options for true integration for a custom viewer on the orbiters, etc, and it is probably the best run open source projects I've seen.
Anyways, keep up the great work!
