what is it about california, I have never even been there but always end up reading about, looking at companies based there, and of course the surf. I was looking for a specific web designer from sweden (for another day now) and somehow got side tracked by noise 13. I like the way their web site looked and liked the way they work, especially as their site for the mint collection. as it has made me reconsider the way to use flash in a web site. I have been avoiding using flash in websites for years after my initial 'mistaken' over use some years ago. though I still using it for animation projects with students. perhaps it is time to re-think flash web use for me?
