Getting Started - building FlickrSync yourself

I think FlickrSync is a great tool but there were a few issues I thought I might be able to fix.  So I downloaded the source and started working on it.  It wasn't too hard to get started but few hicups.  I thought I would write down my experience in case it would benefit someone else.  Note I have allot of programing experience but I'm fairly new to Visual C# so this might not be totally correct.

Here are some instrunction to start developing on FlickrSync:

1) Get Visual C# 2008 Express Edition from Microsoft
   - http://www.microsoft.com/express/vcsharp/

2) Get TortoiseSVN
   - http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/

3) Get the FlickrSync Source
   - http://www.codeplex.com/flickrsync/SourceControl/ListDownloadableCommits.aspx
   - Codplex instructions are here: http://www.codeplex.com/CodePlex/Wiki/View.aspx?title=Source%20Control%20Clients
   - Subversion URL: https://flickrsync.svn.codeplex.com

4) Open the FlickrSync project
   - It will ask you to update the project (say yes)

5) Edit the project to get rid of the signing
   - <SignManifests>false</SignManifests>

6) delete FlickrSync/Auxiliary/flickrsync.pfx
   - when I tried to build it complained about this file so I deleted it
     from the project

7) build --- edit --- build --- debug
