Flickr/roflbot testers needed

I added Flickr support to roflbot, but I've been experiencing some problems with the authentication procedure. Sometimes the Flickr-provided opaque token works immediately, and sometimes it works after a delay.

I think I have a reasonable defensive system set up to work around the problem, but I can't easily test it with my own account.

If you have Flickr, would you please:

  1. Go to roflbot
  2. Add some text and click "Save Image..."
  3. Click "Save to Flickr" and auth the request

You don't have to keep the pictures on Flickr if you don't want to. I can see what happened from my web logs.
