quit tryin' to be clever

I was trying to be clever, using the filename portion of the image URLs fed by Plus for the thumbnail images. Yeah, should know better. Now I'm just generating a filename from a UUID, ignoring what the Plus service provides.

So the images are showing up in the right column again. Huzzah!

Finally, a plus API.... well... almost

So now there's a Google Plus API for Python. You will notice I've added +1 buttons.

However, the sidebar on the right is gone for the moment, because there's a rather major bug in either the Plus API, or the image resizer Google use for the thumbnail images. So right now I can't actually pull thumbnails from Plus, I'd have to pull them down myself.

I'm pondering that, sure, but it seems the wrong way to do it.

Anyway, here's the bug I've submitted to the Plus bug tracker. I suspect that'll languish there for a year or so in the 'new' state, and by that time, I'll have stopped caring.

You know, like most of the Android bugs I've cared about.
