If you are looking for a piece of ActionScript code for doing, say, a special effect, you might give flCodr a try. There is not lot to say about it because it’s just a simple search interface to get you start. Or, bring up the tag cloud (3D) to drill down the code you are […]

Rounding Up The Cannes Week

Posted by | May 25, 2009 .

I realized only last week that “sex” is the second most commonly searched term on our blog. Sad. If only the remaining top ones had been similarly inappropriate! Anybody think we should sprinkle a little keywords in our posts every now and then? There are more people wishing for AIR apps that do nothing. Reader […]
