        I’m tired of spending $1400 ea for “web dev” courses that only focus on using Flash.

        So far I’ve had 6 courses involving Flash vs 1 course involving JavaScript. Have 2 more courses for Flash coming up.

    I would not have posted had it made Gary look bad. I was really impressed with how well he took it and responded. Normally I do this and people want to sue, Gary is a class act all the way though. We all have mad respect for you and even more so after this.

    That was me who made the call after too many free drinks :) We called anyone who had recently checked into Foursquare or Gowalla.

    The methods of mental prowess that you have used to write this article are unique and rarely seen in the writings of today’s writers. You have succeeded in breaking the molds of these same writers.

    It’s seldom that I feel educated after reading an article.
