  • I've started resyncing my photos to Flickr and it is a real pain. Amazon's S3 service does something similar with the authentication and it's very annoying too. The problem is that these nice simple web services start adding more authentication and then become a real pain to develop for. It doesn't help that Flickr::API and Flickr::Upload have minimalist documentation either. Bah!
    • Flickr::API may not have a heap of documentation but the flickr api website isn't too bad. Mind you the api is a bit silly. Why on earth do I pass some dates in mysql format and some as unix timestamps? Why can the api call not tell when I pass in junk? You can pass anything you like in and it still returns success.
  • What Acme module was involved? That's just wrong.
    • Acme-Steganography-Image-Png somewhere in the process - it's not listed in Flickr::Upload's prereqs...
      • I wrote Net::FS::Flickr which requires Acme::Steganography::Image::Png (for reasons that are obvious if you read the docs of the module)

        Are you sure you weren't trying to install that?

        • I know I saw your module, but I don't think I tried to install it via CPAN.pm, and it's not in my cpan build directory. but it doesn't really matter to me - I wasn't trying to come down on cpan dependencies (or a dependency on an Acme:: module) - it was just a bit of a rant, really :)
