I would also note that there is a discount for a Pro subscription on Flickr which I believe ends today - 30% off or some such thing. I took advantage of it, made the sting a bit less.
I actually don't mind paying for service; I just feel strongarmed and I don't really care for that feeling.
I missed the discount, but I did find an easy way of downloading all my photos. Most are scans of negatives so I still have those, but the few digital photos are somewhat safe now.
The app is call easyflickrbackup, it worked fine but it took 5 hours.
