  • Amazing Flash Sites and Flash Resources

    Posted on July 4th, 2009 phpguru No comments

    It’s quite rare, but every now and then, I stumble on a site that I would mirror if I could. A site that should live for ever.

    The Flash Bestiary is one.

    The ActionScript.org forums.

    Jeff Howden has an easy-to-follow example, and here’s a good article at CSS Drive with some examples.

    While I was researching this post, I stumbled across a “Humbling Site” CSSRemix, a site filled with the most amazing example XHTML/CSS sites that are, quite frankly, just jaw dropping.  It immediately reminded me of The FWA (The Flash Website Awards).  A Humbling Site is a site where, when you visit it as a pretty darn good web developer, you are instantly reminded that no matter how good you think you are, there’s always somebody better.
