Our flickr group is not very active, I still hope we will get at some 
point some Free infrastructure for sharing photos. I am also pretty much 
into photography these days, maybe for F12 we will be able to do

This is fine, I think you will learn a lot by playing with some real 
stuff for a clear goal.

BTW: Sodipodi is an old application, the predecessor of Inkscape. Please

Don't be afraid to post here about your ideas, I hope we are not that
