    following the trend, here is my new PHP site:
    http://phpstorm.com

    Itīs a community for PHP-programmers where you can post scripts, articles, instant messages and much more.
    Since itīs a new site new features pop up once a week or more often...

    Anyway, check it out, itīs great!!!

    Exclamation Could be considered seizure-inducing!


    I visited your site, but got stuck in one part of the Flash movie that just kep flashing four intersecting lines, with an icon of an eye at 9 o'clock.

    yeah, same here. you'd think the eye would let you in. turns out you need to click the link on the bottom of the screen (what looks like it would be a mailto link, but nope!).

    So, yeah, Juli: I'd recommend modifying that Flash file to let the user get in by clicking the Eye symbol...

    Unhappy There was a link?


    I didn't even see the link! How about slowing down the animations a little bit?

    yes, indeed, really cool falsh. But at that point a question is arising.

    Is this still creating websites, that is putting information on the web to share it with others? People doing things based on html (javascript, flash and whatelse) the web was not invented for - and definitely not the existing browsers. And thats the point where all the problems come from. The reason for devshed and the other problem-solving-websites.

    Why not stick with the html tags and a little bit of scripting (perl, php) behind and work on the quality of the contents instead of only making the existing contents (and sometimes there isn't really contents) look really new and cool.

    Or are these people the ones fighting at the frontline preparing new ground for those settlers who will come in the future?

    well, i guess it is again about finding the balance between both - the quality of the contents and the look of it to attract people.

    "People doing things based on html (javascript, flash and whatelse) the web was not invented for - and definitely not the existing browsers."

    In the US at least, something like 97-98% of web browsers have the Flash (4) plug-in installed. I use Opera all the time, and there's no way that 97-98% of straight-HTML based websites out there look right on Opera (any site made with Dreamweaver is pretty much worthless on Opera).

    In any case, the link to the actual site isn't located in the Flash, it's in the copyright information in the serif font underneath the animation.

    However the eye symbol is a link to the home page of the site!
    Probably if you get stuck in the animation it doesn't work.
    The link at the bottom of the screen was additional and not done to be the way to get in.
    My doubt is why did you get stuck in the flash movie!
    Thanks for the informations

    Slick intro. My only suggestion is if you are going to use part-english, make sure the english is spelled correctly. The immediate example that comes to mind is "Technical Support" is spelled "Techinical Support" in the movie. There were some other examples, but thats the one that sticks out in my mind.
