I wouldnt' say scripting is easy. programming is a way of t hinking and you really have to get intot he mindset in order to find it 'easy'. I personalyl found it a real challenge, but when presented with a challenge I become completely stubborn so I worked at it until it clicked, and then everything was fine and dandy :) don't give up :)

Flash can be damn tough.. it's best if you have some idea about programming before you start though...

Hi there,

I think it's best to learn the basic of Flash before you move on to actionscripting. If you try and learn everthing too quick nothing will sink in. I'm in the process of learning actionscripting now and I'm gonna take my time. Also, ask your friends or family if they have any projects for you to do like a website or flash cards. I find it hard to come up with projects to do for myself but if someone else suggests it, it gives me motivation to do it and maybe learn something new. Good luck and like Jesse said don't give up.

My foolproof method for flash programming...

I scream at the monitor a lot and occasionally i throw things. i've learned through trial and error that throwing inexpensive replacable things works best. And make sure they aren't pointy and that there's no one in the flight path, like your boss or your girlfriend.

Oh yeah and monitors are hard so don't punch them. Use ice to get the swelling down if you don't heed that advice.

Finally i cry a little bit and swear that i'm gonna go back to mowing lawns for a living... then i double check and make sure that i didn't mispell the instance name. then i feel like an idiot. then i move on to the next problem.

'The All Channels Network' is a network of instantly accessible mini-portals that are built and maintained by groups of users who are interested in the subject at hand. For example the 'Linux Channel' (a resource for the Linux community) is used, shaped, edited and moderated by Linux enthusiasts. Furthermore, the Linux channel is accessible directly as http://linux.channel.ac

Within the 'All Channels Network' the above concept also
applies for any other subject you care to think of e.g.


Note: You don't need to type 'http://' you can just type whatever-you-want.channel.ac into your address bar.

Each channel is a mini-portal relating to the search term entered. In the case of Linux the channel consists of the following elements..

User Rated/Reviewed Links about Linux
Bulletin Board(s) about Linux
Live Chat about Linux
Linux related news
User Statistics for the Linux Channel
User Registration for the Linux Channel
User Contributed Tutorials About Linux
User Contributed Animations and Graphics for the Linux Channel

..the above features are also true for ANY.channel.ac that you can think of.

Hope that helps...

Yeah, flash isn't as easy as everyone claims. There's a lot of stuff that work differently under different circumstanses. But ... if u wait a little there's bound to be someone else who had that problem before and solved it ... and then u can ask that one :) I do it a lot !

And Vilehelm ! U have to use your 'chi', wich resides in your stomach and channel that to your fist. After that the monitor doesn't seem so tough anymore ! (ofcourse you're going to have to buy a new monitor, cuz of some weird reason u come back and start up that fla that dared anger u...)
