Flash Liquid Layout Dynamic Positioning

Following another post regarding using stage listeners to dynamically resize and position MovieClips in Flash, I was asked to upload and FLA as an example. The previous code can just be pasted into the actions panel and will run without any MovieClips needed, and was designed to show the StageListener function rather than showcase a particular dynamic layout.

Group94 Style Menu System

I have always liked the neat and compact menu system Group94 often use in their projects. It is really useful for lists or menus and is also of course very elegant.

I don’t know how Group94 do it, but here is my attempt. I have created two prototypes to make it easy to use multiple times within a project.

Proposed UK Photography Ban


Oh Tony, Tony Blair, how wise and infinite in wisdom.

Of course, having surveillance cameras all over the place is acceptable and right – the authorities need to see us buying carrots and walking the dog. However it appears that soon, if we wish to take a photograph of our beautiful planet or indeed anything that exists in a public space – we will be committing an offence.

Thankfully, you can do something to stop this. There isn’t yet a petition to make the government admit some responsibility for several hundred thousand dead Iraqi civilians, however there is one which may grant you use of a camera. Read : UK Photography Ban »

Matt Johnsons Moleskin page on Dr Beaurieux

During my research for Experiments in the Revival of Organisms, my tutor Matt Johnson handed me a newspaper clipping which he had saved concerning an experiment conducted by Dr Beaurieux in 1905, in which he quite reliably proved that a severed head (That of convicted murderer Languille) remains conscious and alert for some time after being separated from the body.
