Flickr rant…

February 9, 2007

… or, how i learned to stop worrying and love Picasaweb.

Flickr is just great, and it’s certainly my fault for not noticing this before, but… a limit of 3 sets? Come on… it just takes away all of its advantages.

There are mostly 2 kinds of uses for this kind of service: submitting random photos and submitting series of photos (like in a trip). For the first, Flickr is ok (even though i personally prefer Deviantart), as one only really needs to tag those photos. But with your holiday photos, you really need the albums/sets.

Running Postr in Gentoo

February 6, 2007

For those of you using Flickr, there’s this little GTK+ app – Postr – which allows you to upload pictures.

To get it to run in Gentoo, as no ebuild seems to be available yet, i had to install the following dependencies: dev-python/twisted-web, dev-python/elementtree and dev-python/pygtk.
