So I wrote this app – Spell with Flickr around 2/22. Then I emailed it to waxy on the 13th. It took off from there… first the “mavens” found it, then the “connectors” :)

Its all fixed now. For those who care here is what happened:
I was using caching by saving the xml output from flickr’s api. Then what SHOULD have happend is this, if there was a cache-hit, it was supposed to read from that file. WELL, as you may know – php’s file_get_contents allows you to read from a url as well as a local file… I didn’t notice that I was calling the API EVERY time. If the flickr staff wasn’t at etech and SXSW, they would have shut me down much sooner!

I got an email from Stewart this morning (he wrote it last night while I slept). Saying that my api key was disabled – and lo – it was!
Turns out, something got b0rked or pw3nd or any other code you’d like to call it, and I was hitting flickr‘s servers about 50x/second – NOT GOOD.

I’m still looking into the problem. Hopefully it will be resolved soon.
