Fantastic and thanks, Chad!
I'll be looking forward to seeing your version of the pcplantdb online
and usder development. Will this accept input from anonymous or registered users?
If not would it be worthwhile for me to start another mailing list, PCPDB (private & subscription
by invitation only), for users to post information to be considered for inclusion in the PCPBD
(pictures could be uploaded to a section of the pcwiki devoted to the PCPDB; URLs to those pics
could be referenced in posts to the PCPDB list.
