Shit. Guess I better update Flash.
Sorry. The MUNI display can’t accept the VNC connection until someone dismisses the Flash memory error.
You know, it is so fashionable to take a shot at Flash. Look, the fact is the platform is out there every bloody day with fresh material and it’s charming.
Also, there are some small hoops to jump through, but bookmarkable pages are possible in Flash.
- “Fashionable?” Sure. Because, like most busy people, I suddenly get all Karl Lagerfeld whenever a random ad for an SEO newsletter crashes my browser.
- Thinking Flash is the only medium for serving fresh and charming content is like thinking you can’t have a good cheeseburger without a greasy styrofoam box.
- As for those small hoops? Neat idea. But end-users have no control over any aspect of the design or implementation of a Flash app; it’s a mildew-black box, and I’d argue that’s one of its primary flaws as a web medium.
With respect, Flash folks who can look at that screen grab and think I’m the dick here need to think hard about what they’re doing with their day.
I’d also suggest checking the office for undetected gas leaks and aging groupthink.
You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
It’s as though I were reading a book about the reliability of bookshelves when a giant fucking book fell on my head.
On the other hand, at least books are published from durable media—and with readable type and pages that can be bookmarked.
