It got me thinking about the ByteArray and socket classes in AS3, with some experimentation, maybe there will be a way to screw up BitmapData in a similar way? Bring back the 90’s and the cool glitch art that seemed to be coming out more often then. It’s amazing what eye candy can be produced by malfunctions.
