At first - a little history

I just wanted to be able to answer several questions about my portfolio:
- What are my best sellers across several sites?
- What decent earners at IS never got to SS (or vice-versa, or on other sites)?
- From early microstock days (or maybe not only early ones : ) I have a lot of "junk" sitting in my portfolios. How to find them, taking in account that some photos could be just overlooked by customers at particular site

I am too lazy to track manually  necessary for answering these questions stats, and none of existing tools could help.
Being a software developer in my "main" life, answer was obvious - develop my own tool. And there came additional "requirements" that lead to solution that potentially can benefit others:
- I want to be able to access this information from any computer, so it has to be web-based
- I do not have extra money to pay for hosting - I will be limited to free hosting/platforms, but this also means that I cannot store (or even log) _any_ sensitive information on the server, mainly - passwords. I.e. the solution has to be secure (for me, and I am pretty paranoiac).

After spending some time working on this I think I am ready to add couple beta (in reality - alpha) users to the site - at least to see if it should remain my personal tool or more people can benefit from it.
Sorry, for now - only couple, and with specific requirements. They have to be:
- willing to help, not just use the tool
- having _small_ portfolios (couple hundreds) across IS, SS, DT and StockXpert

If you are interested - please PM me with links to your portfolios on these sites (only for size verification), and I'll white-list selected one (or two, or three - we'll see how service can handle the load) at http://statsmicro.com

I've tried out the service and find myself looking at my best-sellers and thinking "WOW! That's a crappy image! I could do so much better now!".  ;D

The service itself is great, but I would personally like to see a couple more sites added.
