ActionScript and Me.

Friday I completed my 3-day crash-course in Flash Actionscript, thanks to James Williamson of Lodestone Digital. I will admit, it was a little over my head in some parts because I'd forgotten a lot of the simple math principles that you have to use in calculating some of these things, but most of it I grasped and I plan on revisiting the excercises next week.

I now plan on adding a lot more unnecessary flash to my websites :P.
