It sounds like you've got a pretty good site coming on but I doubt that I could test it as I don't have that much spare time...

Sounds intriguing... I would note (as Foilman mentioned) there is a definite aesthetic preference for symetrical puzzles - such as the puzzles here, serious crosswords, soduku etc - which I think stems from the Japanese roots of many similar puzzles, where the beauty of the puzzle lies as much in the puzzle itself as in its solving.  Does your generator have an option to create symetrical puzzles for the aesthetes* among us?! (where symetrical refers to the clue number positions, not values, and can be reflective or rotational.)

*or perhaps this should read 'analy retentive'.  Guess that's what happens when you've just returned from paternity leave.  Has screwed with my times too...

It's actually not a website

At the moment, this is not possible, but it should be very easy to add (I will probably do that in the near future).

Ok 6 beta testers sounds good. Can you guys send me an e-mail at mrtheman123-_at_-gmail-_dot_-com so I can send you the download link?

E-mail sent.

By the way: which platforms does your software work on?

I was inspired by this, and have added a square grid with rotation symmetry option to the latest release of my LoopDeLoop program.  Just select Square Symmetrical from the drop down list before hitting new.
