Looking for an online resource which will make me into an instant Archivist/Librarian... Ha ha... not really but close. I am setting up an online archive of old records, photos, and other documents. I would like to do this right so that the average Joe can use it but also so that librarians and archivists won't look down their noses at me. Are there any sites out there which have basic information on this sort of thing? [more inside]

Is there a website which let's you create a library of the books you own and sends updates to twitter when you post reviews or finish a book? I wish bookarmy.com would do it, because I like the site, but unfortunately it does not.

I know, I know -- not another
web photogallery AskMe question, but: I've actually settled on the gallery itself. I'm using JAlbum. Having made the choice, though, I'm left with two questions:
1. JAlbum makes nice galleries, but doesn't create a top-level index page. (I could hand-code it, but my wife will be doing most of the updating and I don't want her to have to go mucking around in HTML.) The easiest solution, I'd think, would be just to reformat the directory listing into something attractive -- all I really need to communicate to the user is descriptive folder names and upload dates, but I'd prefer to make something more handsome than the standard Apache page. Can anyone recommend a particular PHP file system manager or other solution?
2. JAlbum's auto upload is ridiculously slow -- better just to FTP it. When JAblum makes a gallery, though, it includes a lot of stuff I'm not using -- icon sets, borders, etc. It's not a ton of space, but I'm going to uploading a lot of these galleries, and it'll add up. Is there a programmatic way I can stop JAlbum from including all this, instead of weeding it out before each upload? (I'm using the BluPlusPlus skin.)
