I have been using Adobe Flash CS5 for some time now and I really like the IDE. I’ve paired it with Flash Builder 4 and I have been having tons of fun. However, yesterday I installed the AIR 2 release …
This is just a test post from the iPad word press application.
Tonight as I drove home having picked up dinner at Lotus Flower, I pulled to the side of the road. A nice sunset, a great amount of clouds. Light hitting some fluffy cattails. I took my camera with me as …
I am creating an AIR application that spawns a new window, so there is a main application window and also another window. One can manipulate data in either window, and data is synchronized between the windows. So when I adjust data in the main window, I update the UI and data that’s in the secondary window.
I have to admit to not liking Flex Builder at first – unless of course I wanted to create a Flex application. The whole course of creating a project for everything isn’t difficult, but it formalizes the whole process.

So you can hold it almost any way you want and still get a brilliant picture, with excellent color and contrast. (more)
I have been reading an awful lot in regards to the seeming end of Flash use around the internet for video and general use. Apple and Adobe doesn’t see eye to eye on the matter.

In the form of… (more)
Blogger has now instituted a non-FTP way of doing things, and on May 1st that technique of blogging will be tossed out the window. I could migrate and retain all of that information, but I have always been curious about WordPress and all of the nice things that can be plugged into it. So I thought to myself, “why not try it out?”
And so I have. I haven’t been blogging a whole lot recently but I have been pretty busy with things you might find interesting. So I decided that a fresh start would be welcome by both me and the public… (more)
