Getting my birding site together is coming closer and closer to reality. I have learned how to create database queries from a web interface, update the data and other simple database activities. The remaining hurdles include learning authentication (member accounts) so that you get your own private bird list, and figuring out how to best transfer a large MS Access based database to mySQL without having to recreate all the tables. DOes anyone know of an easy way to do that?

I am also constantly mulling over the design interface regarding colors, layout and navigation. I have flower photos from my digital camera that I am experimenting creating diferent color palates from to skin the site with naturally grouped colors and tones.
