As always (overworked with exams and stuff - only two years till I'm done).

I really dont like the idea of moving it to someones private webserver, as 
that will just be an added risk for the future (no offense, but just see how 
much a bottleneck I am today)

Isn't it possible to have the website in SVN but exclude the videos and 
downloads from SVN?

Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
thousands of images?

http://www.kphotoalbum.org might be the answer.
