Flickr Photo Downloader Script

While on my exchange in Finland, my friends from other countries and I took many pictures. We wanted to share pictures, but most of them didn’t know how to use a computer so well. Some burned CDs with pictures and sent them to everyone but it was a lot of work!!! So my friend Camre from Turkey made a script that allows people to easily download all of the pictures from any photoset in flickr. But his script wasn’t working anymore on his server, so I decided to make a new one. I was looking for a simple flickr library, and I found one in Oberkampf, it’s easy and very configurable.

WordPress 2.0

I was taking a look at this new WordPress 2.0 Beta-1. I’ve installed it on my home server for testing and there is actually a bunch of changes and new stuff on the admin panel. I just hope that all good WordPress plugins will work on this new version. I think while from 1.5+ to 2.0 will take some time from the webmasters, but it’s totally worth it! Let’s just wait and see.

 

Brazil moves towards fast internet connection

This is great news for me and my Brazilian folks! Brazil is moving towards faster internet for a reasonable price. Two weeks ago the Brazilian cable company, NET, released 2Mb/4Mb/8Mb internet speed for a low price. Other companies are offering speed up to 1Mb for R$200 (U$83) but this new service will cost 2Mb/300Kbps for R$79 (U$33), 4Mb/600Kbps for R$99 (U$41) and 8Mb/1.2Mb for R$199 (U$82). The only concern is that this cable company may limit bandwidth, 20Gb for 2Mb, 40Gb for 4Mb and 60Gb for 8Mb. That is not much for those who are downloading things 24/7 on bittorrent or in other P2P softwares.
