Flickr changes bust Flexamp and other Flash apps

Flickr changed the crossdomain file on their servers a few days back breaking Flash applications across the www. The flickr crossdomain file at http://www.flickr.com has been removed and Flash developers have been asked to point their applications to api.flickr.com. Unfortunately I missed the news and so far the last few days, related media has not been working. Hopefully I’ll get down to recompiling it soon. I looked around the many Flex apps using Flickr and most havent updated their apps.
In other news I have also started a new page to point to Flex links I have found on the web. I keep jumping from computer to computer and am not completely in love with del.icio.us (mostly because of the UI …. I wish it looked more like popurls basically one big page of links) so it seemed like a good idea.
I still havent had too much time to put up source code for tutorials and stuff but hopefully that’ll come soon.
