How about adding a feature to the Bitcoin Client that would upon receiving or confirming a payment, send POST data to a URL that includes the amount received, address sent from, address sent to, and time received.

Also, possibly also a feature doing the same for outgoing payments.

Possibly an easier solution than API through a 3rd party.

Have a block at blockexplorer.com. This site keeps track on all blocks and all transactions.

I want a website that keeps track of my transactions. One of the many things the site would offer is a graph of my Bitcoin balance over time, so I can see how it has increased/decreased.

What name would you give to the smallest unit of bitcoin (0.00000001)? sat. What name would you give to 100 sats? bit. 1 bit = 1 uBTC. 1,000,000 bits = 1 BTC. It's bits

the bitcoin json api (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Original_Bitcoin_client/API_Calls_list) already allows access to this information.  You would need to write a script that polls for your balance and then does your POST.

Using blockexplorer is better though - just export your PUBLIC keys from your wallet using bitcointools and then write an app that polls blockexplorer for transactions... in fact that's not a bad idea for a webpage, I might code that up if I have some spare time.
