Get the word out and I hope to see some of you there.
(And feel free to right click on the buttons, the black background here or the white background at the top right, and save them to use on your own blog)
Apologies for the absence; moving large herd of cats all this week.
Blogging to resume hopefully by the weekend.
Time to disconnect, unplug and switch off in observance of Yom Kippur, when the world of the Mundane is superseded by the world of the Divine.
May you be inscribed in the Book of Life for the coming year and if you fast, may it be an easy one.
From flickr’s privacy settings:
“Hide your photos from searches on 3rd party sites that use the API? ‘You can exclude your photos from public searches either on Flickr itself and/or any third party software that accesses Flickr via the API (including Yahoo! Image Search). You will still be able to see your photos on third party systems.’”
Now for sure I’ll never allow third party searches on my flickr photostream and unfortunately this still doesn’t cover sites that use RSS to search flickr’s tags.
While I applaud the right of Turkish readers to view content on wordpress, mirroring the entire WP.com domain seems just as much overkill as the original ban of the entire WP.com domain by the Turkish court.
Definitely time to go take a walk; I need some fresh air.
Many thanks to Eric for not only getting this corrected but for also restoring my faith in flickr. If you are still having trouble with viewing the new slideshow, please go to this thread and test the links Eric has posted and report your results there. The more people who do this, the better.
And someone on flickr must be listening because the license of your photo is now included when you use “Share this photo” or “Send to a Friend”.
Thank you flickr! If we could just get that selective 3rd party app thing working I’d be the world’s happiest pirate wench. Arrr, matey!
UPDATE August 2008: Not again!?! If you’re coming through from a search engine after trying to figure out what the heck happened with the new, new flickr slideshow, we’re in the same boat. The last time flickr introduced the “new and improved” slideshow it took them months to squash all the bugs. Make sure you have the latest Adobe flash update and if that doesn’t help, keep pestering them in the Help Forum. (Just when I was thinking of renewing my Pro account…)
