Be careful of the flickr loginid merge

If you use Flickr Importr and merge your flickr id with your yahoo id then the importr program will stop working. This will be due to the authentication progress failing behind the scenes. Last time this happened the patch came out pretty quickly. Flickr does warn that this might happen – I guess what they should have said is it will happen.
I must admit I am a bit surprised that they’ve launched this capability without publicly testing it or confirming it works with the more popular tools. After all a lot of the tools like flickrimportr are promoted on the flickr blogs so they do know about the big ones.
Update And this is my 2500’th post on this blog. When I started this I never knew I’d be that prolific!
