March 1st I launched this web site. It is a non commercial, open source experimental/art Flash web site. I think I have generally worked out most of the bugs in the public side of the site. To download files requires a one time registration -- the key resides on your own computer using the shared object in Flash.

Curious as to what people think of this kind of project.

If you do like it... cool. I would love to hear back from you.

If you run into browser issues with the javascript and/or the Flash 7 plug-in, I do want to hear the issues.

Sleep?...
Not often, not well...

Most nights I just need to putter and get an idea out, and lately its been in code. Usually, then I can sleep.

I work at a University in a media resource area, designing websites,... the pay kind of sucks but I can experiment a great deal.

Thanks for the comments

I am working on a fix for a mozilla browser problem with the javascript. Looks like I need to find a similar one for safari as well.

I have an idea that I think will work. I just need to test it out as well.
I will post something here when I get the fix in place.

OK
Just uploaded some corrections to how the site is viewed in Mozilla and in Safari. I just checked out Mozilla in Windows 2000 (v1.6) and things seem to working. As well I checked it in Mozilla for OSX, although I have not yet made the leap to Panther. I would appreciate any feedback from those using Panther and Safari v2.

One thing I could not easily change was to add a version for monitors that viewed at 800x600. I have done this before for a CD ROM where it is possible to place in content based on the users monitor dimensions, using the system capabilities...

var screenW = System.capabilities.screenResolutionX;

However, in this site where images open up, the scaling would effect how they are presented and animated, so I decided not to proceed with this option. Sorry to those below 1024. For this site I just wanted to go as big as I could.

I appologize for the "high resolution", but that was what I was aiming for and it lends itself to the art side of what I am doing. Call it a self indulgence... I had a friend, in my multimedia course days, once say to me, "Can't you develop a site that caters to 1600x1200 resolution and higher. Your site is too small." He was at an obscene 1850x?? resolution. I have been moving my site design resolution up a notch, but I thought I was safe at 1000x650.
