What’s Happening with Migratr.

It’s been a little while since a new version came out. I know Migratr was typically on a weekly or bi-weekly schedule, and it hasn’t been lately. I feel like it’s necessary to drop in a note and just let everyone know what’s going on with Migratr.

Migratr is still under active development. I haven’t had as much time to devote to it lately, but there’s still a lot of things I’d like to see Migratr do. The thing is that I’ve kind of gotten all the “easy” stuff out of the way, so I can’t really power through a feature in a weekend anymore.

For 1.0 I’d REALLY like to have Webshots and Zooomr supported. Both are, however, being unusually silent regarding API keys. This is especially frustrating from Zooomr, as they posted to the dev group a month ago saying they were going to start handing out API keys, I put in a request, and STILL haven’t heard from them.

Migratr has evolved far beyond its original incarnation as a Flickr > Zooomr migration utility, but until I have Zooomr added to my roster, I won’t be able to consider Migratr a full 1.0 release.

As a sidenote, I’d like to apologize for the ridiculous amount of spam that was all over my forums lately. The forums started to feel like ground zero for anyone wanting to find either porn or tramadol (Not sure why they’re always advertised in combination, but I’d rather not speculate), I’ve read some posts on phpbb spam and made some adjustments to the way the forum works… With any luck, this is now under control.

Thank you for your past & ongoing support, ideas, bug reports, and generally positive attitude.

Hi,

do you have any updates re. the Zooomr API key? Now they move – again – their data centre and my photos are not visible for at least a month being shipped from the US to Japan.
I’m not paying them for that §$%& service anymore….According to their blog:
http://groups.google.com/group/zooomr-dev/browse_thread/thread/97298f9a4409b2c9

you can obtain their API by begging….

Have you tried that?

Sorry, but I’m really desperate getting out of them…

Thanks

Hey – I am having issues using Migratr to upload to picasaweb under Vista… Any suggestion?

was using Migratr to move photos from one flickr account to another. All was well steps 1-3, imported the photos great from old account. Step 4, authenticated the new account, then clicked “Choose folder”, and got a nasty “unhandled exception error”, which said “couldn’t load file or assembly ‘System.Core. Version=3.5.0.0…”, can’t find file.

Any thoughts? Tried restarting both Migratr and my browser to no avail. Thanks.

I’ve actually gotten a couple of reports regarding this over the weekend. The Migratr installer is *supposed* to check for version 3.5 of the .NET framework, and prompt you to download it if necessary. The installer, for whatever reason, isn’t holding up its end on this. If you download & install .NET Framework 3.5 from the Microsoft website, the problem will be fixed:)

I just used your Migratr program to move a bunch of pics from one Flickr account to another. It worked flawlessly, and all my tags and groups transferred exactly as they were in the old account. Thank you!

I’ve been having difficulties authenticating for a Google / Picasa upload. First I though it was the Google api the software uses but it transpires that if one uses Google’s 2-step verifcation to generate an application password for Migratr it works!

So go to your Google Account Settings page and generate a password for migratr (you might have to set up 2-step authentication which takes a couple of minutes).

When you get prompted in Migratr for the google profile & password, put in your google profile (email address) and use the long password with spaces that google generated for your migratr application.
