Flickr Photographer's Press Badge

Flickr BadgeFlagrantdisregard.com has a wizard to help you generate your own (unofficial) Flickr Photographer's Badge. Wear it whenever you venture into the urban wild with camera in hand. I plan to laminate and wear mine in one of my conference badge holders. You never know just how far it might get you!

Badge Maker: Create an Flickr ID badge using your digital photographs
Make your own (unofficial) Flickr badge. Print it out, laminate it, wear Flickr with pride! Show the world how truly photographically geeky you really are!


Once I generated my badge, I downloaded it locally as JPG, opened it in Photoshop CS2, added a layer to the image, and used a Graphire Tablet Pen to add my signature (due to security concerns, I have now replaced the image with a fake signature using a font). The final version was flattened as saved in JPG again. Someone has conveniently made a suitable backside of the Flickr Badge to give it that professional look!

Web application could not be found to accept sessions for replication

Session replication is a feature of the JRun 4 server where session data from a server instance that partipates in a cluster propagates that data via RMI to other session buddies in the JRun cluster. For ColdFusion MX 6.x and 7.x servers that run on a JRun 4 cluster, there are several situations that might result in the following error appearing in the JRun server's out.log:
