Thank you. Yes, I'm afraid I wrote it all from scratch (thus not taking advatange of other people's opensource efforts :)

Is it just the journal part you're after? I personally set out to write a large database where I could catalogue literally anything I produce - files, images, whatever - with a sane frontend. So the database has (for example) and images table, containing all images, with the photos, art etc tables simply being pointers to those. The same comecept for files. This means it's going to be a bit tricky to extract specific parts of the system.

Also, I have some of the origional source code from when I started lying around, if you want that. You're welcome to the currently runnign system, but good luck in extracting it from the irrelevant parts...

I plan to write an article about the design shortly (in the next couple of weeks), which I shall forward to your attention if you wish. Feel free to contact me off-list if you want the source code.
