MogileFS, Zend Framework, Boobs, and Kittens

An upcoming side project of mine requires the use of MogileFS and Zend Framework.  MogileFS is an open source distributed file system, meant to scale up to many millions of files without a single point of failure.  It's currently used by the likes of Digg and last.fm.

Though I was already familiar with using MogileFS clients in php and python at work, the operations team actually runs the servers.   I wanted to get some experience with managing MogileFS itself (trackers, mogstored, mysql), and hopefully have a better understanding of how it all worked together.  While I was already familiar with Zend Framework, I'd never used it to serve images.  So, I figured I should build a quick prototype using both.  But what to build?  I decided to take inspiration from the notorious http://explosionsandboobs.com, but put my own spin on it.  The result?
