Use Flickr as a cloud drive

I agree with everything that has been mentioned in the other comments. Did anyone else notice this was posted by kirkmc?

Since the editor chooses which submitted hints are posted here, I suppose this doesn't make much difference... every hint that makes it onto the site has the editor's "blessing." But for some reason I found it disconcerting that our editor submitted this one himself.

We all use things/services/apps/programs in ways they're not intended— and it's great to share that. Look at all we'd miss if no one had ever dumped Mentos in Diet Coke— which were never intended to be mixed, but consumed separately. But doesn't it pay to be careful when novelly misusing services like Flickr? If we abuse it and they say "Forget dis!" and yank the offer, then we have a bunch of serious digital photographers seriously mad at us. They've got huge lenses and tripods and silvery-shiny umbrellas that flash... I don't know what they would do with all that equipment when they're angry, but I don't want to tempt them to use it in a way it wasn't intended by the manufacture ON ME!

Kirk, you do a great job on this site, but I think you missed the mark on this one.
