I’ve just read via the AXNA that Adobe, Google and Yahoo! worked together to allow SWF searchability. My first thought was ‘finally they made it’ 🙂 But while reading the FAQ I’ve been a little disappointed by how this indexation seems to happen: […]The Flash Player technology, optimized for search spiders, runs a SWF file… Read More »
Some days ago I started using FMS (Flash Media Server). Obviously I wanted to write my project in AS3 and realized that they weren’t a lot of documentation on the topic, that why I’ll post here every part of code I made working. My last project was about creating a chat. I downloaded the demo… Read More »

This apply with EcmaScript 4.0,Francis Cheng made a clear explanation of how to use Type Parameters to add type checking in a collection class. Very useful, now when will AS3 and JS be compatible with this new format ? Well be patient (and try to stay young and fresh :p) Ahmet 0 Kudos Don'tmove!

Monday we had the AUGG (Adobe User Group Genève) meeting to celebrate the release of Adobe AIR and FLEX 3.0. I had a camera recorder during the meeting and I asked several questions (Why AIR?
