[typo] Flickr aggregator not working in 2.0?

Thanks Patrick, it's working now!

I'm new to all the Ruby and Rails stuff, so I was unaware of the rescue
statement. Commenting out the rescue statement gave a hint. I only have 3
images in my Flickr album which gave an error on this line:
for pic in flickr.choose(4)

Changing this to (3) fixed this for now.

Oh, and as I forgot to mention this in my previous post, Typo's really cool

The aggregation is working fine on my blog. Are you sure you pass the RSS
URL to the aggregator and not the web URL? A sample URL would be:

id=37581743 at N00&format=rss_200

If you indeed have the right URL, you might want to comment out the "rescue"
statement on line 14 of typo/app/helpers/application_helper.rb
and try again which will reveal any code errors we might have erroneously
stuck into the 2.0 release.
