I like using RSS, I have Miniflux running in a FreeBSD Jail all the time. Lately I noticed that it’s not very handy to open up Flickr every hour to see photos by my friends, so I decided to use their RSS feed.

First of all, I’m so happy that Flickr provides an RSS feed, it’s an amazing standard and I wish more websites and services implemented it, or at least, not remove it :-)

So I go to Norayr’s Flickr page, and since Firefox removed RSS I do Ctrl-U to see the page source. I search for the term RSS and I find nothing, I search for atom and I find a link!

I copy the link and I add it to my Miniflux feeds. I hit refresh and I see the following.

Okay, so looks like those are photos… from everyone… on Flickr… from the future.

I KNOW that my time is synced, because I always have NTP running. After some digging, I figured that those posts ARE from the future. Flickr calls them “scheduled” posts.

Doing a little more digging, and I realize that I did not copy the full link with id=norayr's_id and now I’m seeing everyone’s feeds.

That’s all folks! :)
