    Have a peek at the materials and stuff here


    if anyone has some constructive criticism as to bugs in the flash, typos, garbage like that, or just want to say how sexy it looks - all very much appreciated - have to make sure I won't be getting laughed at when they see it (lol-yikes) :D

    There are a couple of problems I have noticed but I am not through the whole thing yet. Overall it is good but I found some spelling mistakes and a suggestion or 2. I have to go to school now and take a test ... I will try to go through the rest and post my suggestions later.

    Over all it is good but some suggestions are that many of the sentences in you *doc files are run on and or fragmented. There are some spelling mistakes too. Also any titles of books, papers, pamphlets or any published works need to be underlined. You have many commas that arent needed.
    Now the flash stuff... very interesting and definately stands out but the red text over a semi white background makes it very hard to read. Sorry for all the comments but I thought you should know since this is going to a college.

    wow...I really appreciate you actually reading into it (literally) that much, many thanks. As for the commmas - not surprised you say something about that, but Im not really worried, its more of a pace-oration style... had a few teachers ask about that before, takes some explaining, but reading with a specific flow, the commas dont seem so unnecessary, but otherwise - yeah, it looks like I'm nuts (this particular college has already talked with me about it anyway...artsy super-liberal hippie commune utopia, etc etc :D ) spelling and formatting mistakes Im sure are abound (took everything from .doc, and dropped in html...dumbass me for not editing enough, thanks for heads up on that) Ill keep hunting for those until the college replies, so...yeah, thank you very much for your suggestions again :cool:

    PS - with those shades in your avatar... you look like one of my relatives on steroids ready to beat the crap out of me... lol, scary :p

    its a technique that garners lots of attention for a relatively small amount of work - people seem to be pretty impressed with even a super-simple flash project like mine...(at least according to the dean of admissions, got a reply from her today, she likes it indeed...lol)

    now all you gotta do is buy massive numbers of the business card cd-r's, make a nice flash projector file, and have it autorun when whomever you casually hand it to (perhaps while wearing PK style shades) throws it into their computer :cool:

    Again, something i was thinking of doing. Alot to learn though. I'm still wading thru Dreamweaver, trying to learn how to design a regular html site.
