I'm thinking of doing an additional XML feed which has all the new pictures on it instead of a link to the new pictures. I'm also thining of including flickr-like tags. But all of that is a lot of work.
anyway, if you use iPhoto or other, similar, web ill-equipped software, these scripts might be handy. I understand you can also find plug-ins for iPhoto. That might work, but it wouldn't be nearly as helpful at getting me to procrastinate on my thesis.
