My latest blog entry
It was just a few hours ago that I posted my Goals for 2008 and I'm releasing my first project of the year.
It's nothing big, but it was a fun little distraction.
If you're one of those folks who might care about how something like this might work, here's the source.

Some of my other projects
Spell with flick grabs images from flickr (the One Letter and One Digit groups) and uses them to spell what you've typed in.
Krazy Dad (jbum) made a note once using the letters from the One Letter group with the Flickr API.
I decided to try making something similar as a way to learn Flickr's wonderful developer tools. Along the way,
it got VERY popular. I still feel like it could be better, but it gets the job done. I have made the
source code available for free. It's not coded very well, my first time parsing XML(ish)
with PHP(4), and also my first time doing caching of remote resources (funny story, I had a bug in this script
that bypassed the cache each time - when I got really popular, flickr felt the strain, and temporarly disabled my API Key).
I'm still thrilled with the response it has gotten, and welcome any suggestions or comments.
