But I had some trouble with the demo, mainly because it took a minute every time I changed something for sparkle to refill the list of thumbnails. crappy connection. Or so I though until I had a closer look at FlickrFX.dll. Turns out they dont use piping and that makes loading thumbs from Australia really slow.
So for all of you who want to test the sample with the fastest download possible here is a recompiled FlickrFX.dll that does piping.
Great work anyways ,
