Five or six years ago I was fascinated by animations on the web. My fascinations lead me to Flash v. 5. This first encounter lasted for 1 year or so. The MX version of Flash entered the market and I skipped it entirely due to the new form that I disliked at that time. After 1 year of !Flash I was completely regained by its power. The next three versions were (and are) part of my daily digest. I do Flash and code ActionScript.
