March 2007.

The visualizer has been registered on MacUpdate, I hope it will not cause too much hits on the Flickr database because they could close my API key. I still need to implement a decent cache system in order to minimize the impact on the bandwidth.

The reason of the slow update is the fact that I lost my mother and it was not easy to handle.

September 2006.

Using pictures in the visualizer by sending query to flickr is done, try the version 1.2 on the download page.
It was quiet easy to implement and it's fun to see those pictures comming on the screen releated to the keywords of the music you are listening.

Dreamhost did offer a 80% reduction for the first 888 person registering to their service, so I did jump and now my site is hosted on their servers.

Did add better streaming of my videos.
