Re: Off For a Few Days (and TODO list)

Unfortunately I cant reply as I am at the airport about to get on a flight back to NZ. This is exactly how I would have done it.

If it passes all the tests and works for you then go ahead and commit it! Awesome work (remember to remove ~/.flickr first). For the authenticating signal, Just do it the simple way ATM, but lets think about creating a WebAuthenticator interface (Similar to ImageSink) that these dataproviders could derive from. Then we could put the Authenticating and the LoginTester in there.

Once this is applied to trunk could you test to see if the works on foresight please Ken?
