The horrible "summer weather" here in Denmark has allowed me to make some serious progress in the process of reaching beta stage with ColorExplorer.
Most of the site framework has been ported from the initial Classic ASP and MySQL to ASP.NET and MS SQL; Yahoo YUI has been used for nice client side scripting; and a bunch of new ideas has sprung to life.
I hope to be able to open for a closed beta stage within very short time (a few weeks from now). After a closed beta period of 3-4 weeks, the site should be ready for public beta.
