View Full Version : thumbnail idea

OK chaps

people tend to post links to nice things they have come across... Like check this out its bling etc

Unfortunately the link gets lost in the jungle of posts and after a day or so its gone for good which is a shame

i decided to build something over the weekend in order to accommodate this feature and require your input.


i am utilising a thumbnail API which takes a snapshot of a website and copies a thumbnail of the site. The App will copy thumbs and place them in a HTML Table! using a configurable matrix which is set to display 5 columns x ∞ rows. The matrix will just collect thumbs and become a huge thumb repository (not real thumbs from a hand!). I have built a test system which allows you to key in a URL and description and category. The thumb is created and retrieved and an XML file is created and used to index the information.

What do you think of this idea?

Would you use it?

What do you think of this idea?

Best one I've heard in a long time.

Would you use it?

Yes, and abuse it no doubt.

Do it DJ :)
