We will absolutely continue to maintain the server back end for  
testing the Uploader. It's now set up as part of the daily build and  
is connected to the latest code base. We'll probably want to extend it  
to handle different Uploader configurations so that we can perform a  
variety of realistic tests against it.

Here's the URL for the nightly Image Gallery 2 application, which is  
our server test bed for Uploader:


At the moment, there's no way that I know of to delete uploaded files.  
The database is dropped whenever the application is rebuilt. Perhaps  
Ray has a few spare cycles to lend a hand with this feature?
