I am delighted to let you know that my photo of a vintage musical instrument, exposed at Sforza Castle Museum in Milan (Italy), has been selected for inclusion in the cultural site AboutMilan. Here is the original message.

Iniziamo col presentarci. Sono Diletta e ti scrivo per conto di un’agenzia che si occupa di servizi on-line. Fra i tanti servizi di cui ci occupiamo, gestiamo una serie di portali non commerciali sulle maggiori città italiane (www.aboutflorence.com – www.aboutroma.comwww.aboutmilan.comwww.aboutvenice.orgwww.aboutversilia.comwww.aboutturin.com). Curiamo anche un blog (http://newsblog.aboutitaly.net) dove pubblichiamo degli articoli su eventi culturali e manifestazioni di diverso tipo. Al momento stiamo aggiornando parte del sito www.aboutmilan.com, e volevamo chiederti se potevamo usare questa foto (http://www.flickr.com/photos/netnemo/3362565014/) sul nostro sito (inserendo ovviamente un link alla tua pagina su flickr).
Per questioni di urgenza pubblicheremo la foto inserendo il link, se però tu avessi qualcosa in contrario non esiteremo a cancellarla immediatamente dal sito.
Ti ringraziamo in anticipo e ti mandiamo un saluto.

Distinti Saluti

Flickr Changes: from 150Mb to 500Mb for Video (but still 90 seconds)

Today I noticed that the maximum allowed size of video to upload is 500Mb against the previous of 150Mb. I don’t know if it is a real change or just a mistake of the webmaster. The lenght of the video is still 90 seconds (it can be longer, but the first 90 seconds will be visible only). Maybe it has been upgraded because of HD 90 secs videos from cameras and videocameras are bigger than 150Mb. I hope that Flickr will allow to upload bigger and longer video in the future. I can pay an extra for this feature.

Update: this news was published on Flickr Blog 2 days later of mine. Maybe they read mine :-), by the way I read that this is a pro account feature only.

Good Flickr Customer Care

They worked to resolve an issue about an account duplication with mixing of email and Yahoo ID that prevent me to register one of my email on my pro account. Now all things are ok, because italian team found what I needed and passed the ball to the american team. Not a fast solution, because it needed 14 days from the first help request, but sure it worked!
