The other problems include the technicalities of how you upload things? Most
servers have a limit to the amount you can upload over http, so it would
most likely have to rely on some kind of ftp or sftp upload at a guess. The
web side is theoretically easy with some kind of php or asp interface which
simply relates to the file database.

Any other input?

last year at the small informal meeting of the case/aces somebody (and if I
remember well it was Carey Dodge) proposed the idea of a web-based soundwalk
collection. One could upload a soundwalk and include details about the
location, the weather, etc. These would be available to all. It would indeed
require _lots_ of space but imagine! A sort of "themed" sonus...
