What Dave’s code does – I think, it’s not really explained – is use the Flickr API to grab the largest-available resolution image for anything which crops up in the RSS feed. This means it’s more likely to look pretty good on an HDTV. Given that the resolution of 1080p is 1920×1080 – and most “HD ready” TV’s aren’t 1080p anyway – I don’t think that’s a big deal.

Do your incidental shopping for next Christmas in the next week or so. The week after Christmas is the best time to buy wrapping paper, ribbons, cards, tags, and so on for next Christmas. Pick them up at 50% off (or better) right now, then toss them into storage for eleven months. You can save some decent cash doing this. We do it every single year.
