My iPhoto library is corrupted! Help! Must backup more often!

Serves me right for having over 8,000 photos on one library. Should have split it up sooner. Anyways, I should be able to recover most of my photos by following the tips in Jay Allen's Recovering a corrupted iPhoto library post and Inspirational Technology's iPhoto it just gets worse post. Unfortunately, currently iPhoto dies when it finishes rebuilding my library. If anybody has any further clues, please leave a comment, I would be most grateful.

Thank goodness, 99% of them are on barbandroland.com and Flickr.
