Just Testing the Flash

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

NOTE, 1/24/2022: This page is obsolete, as Adobe Flash Player has not been supported since December 31, 2020. The page remains here for archival purposes, minus the Flash plugins.

Never before have I used Flash on this website, partly because I didn’t want to make “heavy” Web pages, that is, pages that load slowly on dial-up connections (this is a non-issue nowadays as most people have broadband); and partly because until recently, I didn’t know how to embed Flash by using standards-compliant markup. Well, those days are now over.

Check out the three objects below; they should work on any modern Web browser. The first one is (so far) the only video I have ever posted to YouTube; it shows a large fireworks fountain shot off in our front yard on July 4, 2008. The second one is my music playlist from Playlist.com*, and the third one is my music store which also appears at my MySpace page* (which is screaming for an update; shame on me!).

(*UPDATE, 1/24/2022: Playlist.com is gone, and I haven’t had a MySpace page in many years.)

Incidentally, a couple of my co-workers have asked me recently if I had any new music in the works. So far I am not recording anything, but if all goes well, that will change in the near future.
