I have a Macbook Air as my only computer ; I store my shots on Flickr.

The size of the SSD doesn't allow me to keep all my RAW files on my laptop. So I publish the photographs I like in their final state on Flickr with the built-in feature of Aperture.

When I hit delete on a project (in Aperture) the message clearly indicates that all photos synched to any service like Facebook, Flickr or any other will be deleted.

How can I can around this without the hacky way of unlinking Aperture from Flickr before deleting the project?

I'd have to say that the best solution to this is probably to get an external hard drive, or ten. Having an off-site storage of your files is a very good idea, but relying on it as the sole storage is a notion that fills me with dread.

I totally agree with you, but for different reasons this is not my current setup. My question remains :-) – jchatard Jun 19 '12 at 10:37
