wow i like plone...
ive been watching a movie on it at:
will it import and export to databases?
i was thinking more of a traditional archive, not a website,
but dont want to spend money on closed source software for many reasons..
but actually perhaps websites is the way to go,
the movie says i can have secret things -
i wouldnt like to put out a list of all the valuables and where they are,
there may just be a rare book amongst the collection,
one of my first jobs is to list the books, authors etc,
perhaps with a few scans from the books,
or a photo of every piece of furniture and
of jeremys paintings,
and his mum, lettice sandford's corn dollies...
ive never used databases, apart from sorted lists...
