Is This Site Slow?

When I visit this site or even my admin pages it takes me a really long time to load. Am I the only one that experiences this or is this normal for everyone that is coming here in an actual browser? I’d really appreciate it if you let me know so I can try to […]


Inspiration: Flash Developer Workspaces

I was going through my RSS about three weeks back and saw a neat post on Webdesigner Depot about some of the workspaces used in creating some of the most popular sites. It was quite inspirational and a lot of the comments were very positive. I thought it’d be a cool idea to do the […]

My Stock Flash Files

If you are someone who looks out for details and doesn’t just read this site through your RSS reader you will notice that there is a new page called “Stock Flash” which links directly to my FlashDen portfolio. Tomorrow I will outline part 2 of my “Selling on FlashDen” post but for now you can […]


Server Poop

Sorry about the down time for the past two days. Apparently Media Temple was having some issues with their storage clusters but it should be resolved now. If you e-mailed me in the past two days I may not have gotten it as well 🙁
