I usually make a quick check of websites I made some time ago to see if everything is all right. Imagine my surprise or what I personally call near death experience, when the flash website which should be gray and awesome was basically black with poorly cut out images on top. If this sounds familiar please keep reading I've got few ideas :-)
This dreadful purple fringe and her evil sisters yellow, green and red! They really get on my nerves while processing digital images i've shoot. Basicaly because I don't have kick ass PRO camera, and at the time I bought my sweet Nikon D40 the one thing I knew about lenses was that if they give two in the price of one, I should buy it.
Uploading files into ftp server for web designer is a piece of cake, for someone with own website should be easy enough too. But before reaching perfection in it, there is always a first time :-)
I didn't have many oportunities to go wild (yeah I said it!) with actionscript 3 lately. Therefore when the other day I was working on rather simple thing, I got stuck, to say the least. But let's face it, even actionscript superstars (i'm not talking about myself, duh!) sometimes forget about simplest things, for that occasion is this post.
Random numbers are an indispensable part of many Flash applications, but sometimes the simplest code can cause problems. Recently I needed a simple random number generator that of a pool of numbers will draw 10 random numbers. Below I present a simple code and source files for download, for those interested :-)
This article originated mainly from my personal needs. I often need to generate a random value in AS 3.0, but not always remember exactly how to generate specific random number. So I gathered some useful lines of code that I personaly use. Hope you find them useful :-)
