Yeah alpha...my "spidey" web-sense was going off too, while on her website.
Especially since lately I've been doing a lot of Flash stuff at my web day-gig ...the ideas are plentiful of what can be done to make web experiences more current, and enjoyable.

Though it's a bold design choice/approach...that "biker/black" web site look is getting just a tad old...

..she's probably been hanging around Fletcher's Mercenary Audio site too much!!! :p
[/QUOTE]

it looks as if it was ripped off from the mercenary site to some degree.... but the design is just all over the place circa 1995. i mean tables with borders? horizontal rules? come on... make the site look as high end as the gear. hell, i will bring the site up to this decade in trade for a SLAM! w/ADC's...

although i have been doing flash since it first came out... i think its one of the worst ways to do a website. at least in MX they finally made a way to use the back button and made scrolling easier but man, most sites are just dogs done in flash.... and flash intros are so passe'

From that picture, it looks as if George is about to boost Evanna's low-mids.

Well I've always had a hard time being someone else, so I've always used my real name for all these online forums. Fortunately, it hasn't come back to haunt me!

Ahhhhhh…now I remember seeing that picture of GM and EveAnna once before...yeah that's great!!! \:D

Hey…and I’d be happy to trade some Flash work even for a DVC!!!

I've done a few all-Flash web pages...yeah, a bit of a PITA!!!
And…I too hate the sites that have a "Flash-splash" page...and then they take you to a boring site that is all HTML/tables.

My current thinking is to use Flash as "peppered content" that is part of more basic web pages...be they pure HTML or ASP driven stuff.
Like…instead of just inserting a static image…you would include a small Flash “object” into the pages as needed.

Here are a couple of decent Flash sites done by a Canadian company:
(Turn on your speakers...there's plenty of audio.)

http://www.onair.ca/index2.htm

http://www.raremethod.com/

Oh...what are you saying about the Back button?
I still see that hitting the browser back button while inside an all-Flash web site takes you back to the beginning...instead of the "last Flash page"...are you saying there's a way around that...
...or was it something else you are referring to?

Ooooops...didn't mean to go tangent with this thread.

even on DSL i still have to wait for loading. i hate that crap. i still cant use my scroll wheel to scroll the text, major pita. i mean these sites are nice for like the first time but make going back to the pages a pita and its just all bells and whistles. say i have music playing while im surfing, i hate having to mute one or the other and get a total trainwreck of sound coming out.

regular HTML tables and shit might be "boring" but its fast as hell, and much easier to navigate without all the stuff that drives me nuts about flash sites. why am i even saying this? i make twice as much money doing a flash site over a HTML site!

and yes, you can now place back points in flash which the back button will go to.

i go on the net for information. i watch tv to be entertained. there are some games done in flash which i think its more appropriate for but basic websites i think its just not appropriate. now interspersing flash objects within an HTML site can work to some degree but most times, its just not necessary.

you are just down the road. magnolias... the only bar in town that has a patty wagon parked outside of it and a plethora of cops. used to go there in the early 90's [when there was no cover at the door] but last time i went there a huge fight broke out right behind me on the way to the john.

OK...so you are talking about using named anchor keyframes.
Yeah, that's a pretty good thing, though it only works for those not too lazy to install Flash Player 6! \:\)

Me...I just put in my own Back button right inside the Flash piece...though you always have that person that will automatically hit the browser’s back button...and then it’s all the way to the beginning…if there are no named anchor keyframes.

I just sat in this morning on a meeting/presentation from Akamai...who for those not aware, is one of the biggest web content delivery providers in the world.
And one of the topics they were focusing on was the use of, and their ability to deliver, large/complex Flash content...
...but, they did point out that it was up to you to create that content...not them!

So yeah...a lot of people just do bad/poor web content....with or without Flash.
Flash can be used well...but most of the time it turns into nothing more than a glorified animated GIF. :rolleyes:

OK guys...if we continue with this topic...I promise to take it off line and just PM alpha. :p

I must have missed the post where GM called everyone out - good job - although I'm betting not one the "you hear my stuff on the radio any day, but I can't tell you who I am" types will be coming out. PT? PopStar? McSnare? No I didn't think so.

Me? It is all in my sig and always has been...

I do a lot of stuff under the radar and once in a while fall into some pretty cool gigs. It is all good to me.

LOL \:D

Yeah, I kinda' wondered when this thread began, how many of the few thousands forum members would finally "come out" from behind their handles...?

Notice how so many of the frequent posters have suddenly gotten very quiet around here... ;\)

Man, you have one sweet looking room up there. Very nice digs. I want to post pictures too, but I'm still figuring out how to do trick photography.

I don't know if that needs a few grains of salt or not alpha...
...especially coming from Tron...knowing Pee tee and him were always such special pals! ;\)

But...it actually wouldn't surprise me at all…because Pee always tried to talk from too lofty a position...and that's a sure giveaway.
Not that he wasn't unaware of audio...but he tried too hard to sound important or imply that he always moved in the "inner circles”. :rolleyes:

But when you asked him for his name...he didn't ever want to give it...
...well, now he's gone...or so he says.
You never can tell who the next new member really is...

What, do you have some sort of browser bot just looking for your name to come up on a post and then you show up?

There have been countless quite respected people come across these forums, so we do know that these guys are not them. And so far every anongineer that has been de-cloaked has been mostly a bag of wind wishing they were cool enough to warrent anonymity while those who might be don't even bother with it - I guess that is a sufficient identity in and of itself.

And no one believes anything that Tron says - if you can even make sense out of it, but it would be fun to believe it a little.

My dear friends,

Can I ask everybody to please limit contributions to this thread to it's original purpose?

None of us need to slog through witless excuses about why they should retain their anonimity.

Not here.

Start another thread.

But keep it clever.

Hmmm...you really want that?

This "coming out" thread has kept a lot of the anonymous users who refuse to join up...away from here.

Are you now inviting them all back?

Oh...and there's been a bit of a lull in the action here...so alpha, stevpow and I are just keeping the crowd amused until the next act shows up! \:D
