Dunno who's following the project, but I've added some programming notes.

I'd be interested to read what you think about scalability, which is the thing that makes LJ most difficult at the moment...

Well I know that saying something like "this is just a small project" or "640k should be enough for anyone" is just asking for trouble in this game, but truth be told I really don't expect this to become all that big - it's not intended as a massively scalable system.

That said, I know very little about scalabality issues, and it's *that* that's the main reason for not being able to think about them at this stage. I've never had any formal introduction to them - theoretically (by training) I'm a hardware engineer, so I don't know what to look out for. All comments, however, very welcome.
