Use Flickr as a cloud drive

Hmm... This seems to be a weird hint for this site and also another reason why we can't have nice things. Given how awesome it is that Flickr is giving users 1TB of space for free and how that could potentially change the online storage marketplace, is it wise to help inform people how to abuse the system? This isn't dropbox, it's a free photo storage service. Encoding other types of files (MP3s, etc) into fake images and uploading them to Flickr would seem to violate their service terms, or at least violate the spirit of the service and potentially cause them to reevaluate the offer.

From Flickr's faq page
"Please note that the available amount of space is subject to the Yahoo! Terms of Service. To avoid abuse of our free space, we monitor accounts for excessive usage or unusual upload and behavior patterns, as our goal is to ensure that everyone has reliable access to their amazing photos and videos on Flickr."
