Topic: Cannot Parse Gallery XML continues to pop up.Troubleshooting for hours

I am trying to problem solve why my SimpleViewer is not working.  Everytime I try to run the Simpleviewer, I receive the pop up "Cannot Parse Gallery XML".  I have it linked to my Flickr account (kbcdesigner) and am confused why it won't work, even just from my desktop.

Thank you in advance for your help!  I appreciate it, I'm at my wit's end!



Here is my code:
