Flickr and me


Last Tuesday night I wanted to post an article about Red Light Center, a virtual world I visited in November so as to make up my mind on its possibilities.
As I took many pictures and had little time to load all these images in my blog I decided to put a simple link so as to allow my dear readers to go directly to my album.
Actually, instead of spending half an hour as I had initially planned, I wasted three hours during this night trying to understand how Flickr was working.
And finally I had to ask Daneel for some help on the topic.
He provided me some instructions that I am still trying to decipher, but what is important so far is that he gave me the link I should have posted this damned night.
Here it is at Flickr
Normally you should arrive at my album named Red Light Center where you can see all the picks in slides show.

Some words about Red Light Center (RLC)

If we can say that Second Life is 30% sex, 30% game, 30% exploring and 30% many other miscellaneous things (yes I know it’s 120%, that is the strength of SL) then RLC is 99.99% sex and 0.01% boring.
The only real item you really need is a real credit card with a real number code that you can give to access the multiple services provided by RLC.
I just made a stroll this day and never had either the opportunity or the wish to come back in this copy of Amsterdam.
Some links you can look at:

I gave up making some comments directly in the picks, too complicated and/or cumbersome for me, so enjoy the show, even if they are in disorder!
Oh by the way, as I am a newbie with Flickr I am not sure if everybody can watch the show, so please tell me if you have problems.
I never felt so stupid than this week…

I made several attempts on this post before all links were valid...
First, the last digits in the "Flickr link" were disappearing everytime I edited the post to change something and I always had to add them again otherwise the link lead to nowhere.
Second, the links I wrote in my Word document were valid when I copied/pasted them in my navigator, but they din't work in my blog, I had to change the ""...
If somebody can tell me how I can solve the first issue, it's really annoying when you have to make several modifications and you are kind of perfectionist...
