    Wink I have found the reason to flash

    After searching high and low - through many a nasty flash splash page, i have found a good use for it.

    Poetry?


    Poetry from Woody Harellson

    Please add other useful examples - presentations and so on, but please no splash pages. I do think some splash pages are done by very talented people - but they just seem to get in the way.... ;-)






    (1st post! - be nice)

    While these are not story- or poetry related, they are nice, non-worthless uses of flash:

    http://www.hostrocket.com/home/index.htm
    (Made by PixelBrick - they have made many similiar sites)
    http://www.scottevest.com/
    (This site makes use of flash on several places - check out the comparison between the vests)
    http://www.palm.com/products/palmi705/
    (See the interactive demo)

    Also, that poem rocked! I'm not an active environmentalist or anything, but it still moved me somehow. Nifty.

    edit - but that poem REALLY should have a %-loaded bar. I hate it when they don't.

    Yeah, it could be done in DHTML, but as flash has much much better cross-platform support, it's a better choice. It may also be a bit faster loading.
