A witty macosxhints user has reacted immediately and set up a little web application to convert the Flickr feeds for subscribing in iPhoto ’06, check it out below:
Thank you 3eyes (John Evans) 🙂
thanks to Jason who pointed me in the direction of a very similar service, with a few extra features, called photocastr.
