High Contrast Flickr

So I’m uploading a fair bit to flickr at the moment. I always *have* to look at the bottom of the homepage, the section called Everyone’s Uploads.

It’s a small world, but a very different one depending on where you live.

(The image of the Palestinian lasses can be found here, the Californians here.)

While I confess many of the links looked highly interesting, they had to go. The worst thing is that bucketFountain has been blacklisted by the almighty Google.

Needless to say I immediately upgraded (which was long overdue) and replacing the offending file in the theme.

A number of good things have come out of this:

If you run WordPress, check your blogs source now and go straight to the bottom, it will be obvious if there’s a problem.
