|Riding the API at the limit|

Flickr offers 'Unlimited uploads and storage', and that is the only thing I want. To exploit my upload and storage I am going to use a Java application, that generates numbered images and automatically uploads them to my Flickr pro account. The only thing which stands in the way is the Flickr API. It has a limit of 3.600 queries per hour across the whole API key, means 1 API call a second.
Can not be named 'bandwidth killer'.
This member is no longer active on Flickr.
After approx. 24 hours and exactly 19.540 uploads, Flickr deleted my paid pro account without any warning.
