Aggregating posts from different blogs (2 posts)

    Hi Guys,
    Although I am a seasoned PHP Developer, I'm pretty new to WordPress. I was wondering if someone could advise me as to the best way to achieve the following.

    I have a blog, which has sections (each section is a separate blog - using the multisite thing in WP3 for this). However, the default section, the '/' blog, doesn't hold posts of it's own, it is used to aggregate data from the other blogs to show things like most recent in each section etc.

    My question is, how can I get the posts from each blog as fully formed objects and what not. I'm retrieving the data from the posts fine, but what I'm struggling with is, say if you want to show the post's featured image, you'd use get_the_post_thumbnail() function, but because at that point, it's not operating out of the blog that the post is assigned to, it's not retrieving the image.

    If anybody have any suggestions on this, I'd really appreciate it.

    Cheers
    Pete
