Why won't I? Is there some kind of limit on the number of times I can
smack a person across their face with their own stupidity?
The only reason I haven't replied yet to that post (and various
others) is because:
1. I haven't slept in about 47 hours.
2. I'm too busy trying to make some headway with this:
....now with handy dandy scrollers, minimize button, maximize button
and close button. The task bar thing really needs some work, the
current setup is more just for testing. Next I need to setup and test
all the image skinning bits and then I need to make a few test skins
to see how it works out.
After that I need to create a kind of "start" menu and then throw
together some simple, external Flash app that can be loaded into my
Flash Windows for demonstration...I'm thinking I'll start with
something simple like a Flash cock.
