Well, I didn’t spend the entire night at Yahoo! last night, but I did eat a great deal of their pizza, with the net result that my 42 year old stomach is bitching at me big time. Guess I’m no longer used to a diet of Coke and pepperoni.
The presentations are about to begin. I’ll have the recap later.
Addendum2: Well, I didn’t actually complete a hack that I thought was worthy of mentioning in front of others, but I did code a couple of things. I wrote a very simple python script that in a moment of silliness I decided to call
noseflickr.py. Basically, it allows you to specify as many tags as you like, and it will try to download the largest versions of the “most interesting” photos with those tags. Why do that? Well, I dumped all the best photos tagged with “baseball” into a directory, and then pointed the default Mac OS X screensaver at that directory, et voila! Lots of cool photos for your screensaver.
The script isn’t glamorous, or even done, but you can click here and have a peek. It doesn’t need any libraries other than those that come with Python, and it should run pretty much anywhere.
