Implementing flickr thumbnails
I spent most of the day trying to get various layout issues solved with Movable Type and once I got the three column layout down, I tried to get that little left "Recent Photos" area to auto-populate with my flickr photos. Unfortunately the first plugin in tried Jim Flanagan's http://jimfl.tensegrity.net/ plugin. Unfortunately this had some serious issues and looks like development has stopped on it. I found that Mike Huang took over bug fixing for the FlickrPhotoSet over at his site. Unfortunately this version appeared to be broken as well.
Finally I found another version of a MT Flickr API at MT-Hacks that works amazingly well. Totally rocks.
