One of my friends says she cannot see my photos when they are Flickred because her net server blocks the site. Does this happen to anyone else?

Kathy is an amazing designer and I always learn something from each of her patterns. She’s also wonderfully fast and seems to whip up these patterns overnight. Currently she’s working on a skirt and top. Wow.
