Default Flash site with SWFObject not being crawled

Hi, I'm a very newbie.
I'm having a Flash site built, and asked the designer to program SWFObject so that search engines could crawl the text content.
However when I ran my temporary beta site (it's attached to my designers domain until I find a host) through a simulated crawler http://www.feedthebot.com/tools/spider/index.php, NONE of my HTML text was found
What am I doing wrong???
It seems to work fine when I have Flash disabled, but once I go live on my own domain, my major concern is getting crawled by search engines.
So...hoping to get as much technical input here as possible so I can relay all the info to my designer. Please checkout my source and also try the site with your flash disabled and perhaps you can tell me if SFWObject is loaded correctly, and if so why the crawlers cant see the text.
Thank you in advance!

Question Is my SWFObject correct?

i posted yesterday but didnt get any replies. hoping someone will take a look at my source and let me know if i have the swfobject programmed correctly. it appears to work fine with flash disabled, but the problem is it isn't being crawled in a spider simulator, which means that something is wrong somewhere. i need to go live soon, so i'd really appreciate anyone's time to take a look!

p.s. just the tom3 page is mine...
