I agree too! Thing is, I'm on dial-up at the moment so uploading lots of 
photos would take ages. I intend to get broadband, but will probably wait 
until I've got a new computer as the current one is so clapped-out that it 
isn't worth buying the hardware for it, and I want a laptop next time so any 
components I bought for the current one wouldn't fit. A photos page is a 
definite intention in the future.

Good idea - my knowledge of this area is not great, but if others more 
knowledgeable would be prepared to compile the information I can put it on 
the web.
