I, too, have been investigating Amazon EC2. I will be using Amazon’s S3 for a site, but have not yet determined if I want to also take advantage of Amazon’s Compute Cloud services. Either way, here are a few links that might point you in the right direction:
1. This guy is already doing what you want to do. He runs his WordPress-based site on EC2 using S3. He talks about the process in this article. Perhaps you could contact him for more details if needed.
2. Information on using Amazon’s S3 with WordPress Mu:
Good luck! Let us know if you get this working.
BuddyPress member themes should be located under /wp-content/bp-themes/.
Please note, just recently this changed. Before, the BP member themes were installed under /wp-content/member-themes/.
Of course, it depends on which version of BP you’re running, but you should check to see if you have a /bp-themes/ or a /member-themes/ folder under /wp-content/. Then, make sure that you have an actual member-based theme installed in that folder.
I made a minor, aesthetic change to the widget control screen. I did not like the way the text was not inline with the radio buttons. Now it is.
The executing code has not changed. So, if you’ve already downloaded this widget, the only reason to grab the new version is if you want the mentioned aesthetic change too.
I’m still looking for additional testers and more input. Once it has been kicked around for awhile, I’ll make any necessary changes and then submit this widget to the repository.
That makes sense.
I assume the problem only shows up when you choose the large avatar size?

Yes, I understand–and I agree.
As far as I know, at this stage, WordPress is not a OpenSocial container. Perhaps there are plans to address this in the future.
Place this link tag in the header file of your home theme and member theme.
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/favicon.ico" />
The above is just an example. Make sure the path to your favicon is correct.
If you don’t have a favicon, here’s a site that makes a favicon out of any graphic file you provide: http://www.html-kit.com/favicon/
Thanks for the post, John. As you point out, there are many ways to contribute to the WP community even if you lack made-programming skills.
There are several SVN Clients for OS X users. Below are the two I would recommend:
1. I use Panic’s Coda ( http://www.panic.com/coda/ ) for my IDE. It has a built in SVN client. Of course, Coda costs.
2. If you want/need a free solution, then you can install the SCPlugin which is open source ( http://scplugin.tigris.org/ ).
Alternatively, here are a few other options–some of which also cost:
