We're in the planning stages. The steps to be taken are:
1. Design the database and tables.
2. Write the back-end code.
I'll probably write the back-end code, as it looks to be fairly easy to do -
I'll adapt some of the code from MyC - but the database has to be designed
first. Any ideas on how to lay this beast out?
