Week Two - Tuesday

Having done as much as I can with the database without actually having the data to pass into it, I've turned my attention to the retrieval scripts. There are numerous Flickr API kits available, and I've been using Scott Raymond's MIT-licensed flickr.rb as a starting point. Leah said she'd work on parsing the XML so that we can store the appropriate information in the database, so I should be able to put the whole thing (retrievers and parsers) together by the end of the week.
