I wish I could Scala

I've decided on my next project. I'm going to build a website that my wife and I can upload our photos to and have it store the photos and a database of metadata about the photos. Basically instagram but without the internet. It should be a pretty simple thing to hack together - I have half the code already written in Twit-arr. It will allow us to take out photos from our various devices (two phones and four+ computers) and put them all into a single spot that I can back up.

Since I've been wanting to use Scala for something and have been playing with it here and there, I decided to fire up Typesafe Activator and start a Play project.

Unfortunately I now realize that plan was a mistake.
