Fri, 22 Feb 2013 15:38:37 +0000

I’ve spent the last two weeks or so now doing a lot of tech soul searching, exploring all viable options currently available so I can move my life on in a tech landscape that’s seemingly (at least from an employment

The App stores are madness… but I see the method in them.

Just posting this so in the annuls of time there’s a marker to look back at and realise at what time the “open web” died (give or take a year). With all this hullabaloo regarding HTML5 (and it’s associated technologies,

Flash is alive and kicking! Why does it feel like Adobe’s trying to kill it?

Mon, 16 Jul 2012 15:27:47 +0000

Mon, 18 Jun 2012 09:09:39 +0000

I was speaking with a colleague last week about the amazing work that Air for Mobile facilitates, and we both agreed that with the battering the Flash brand has taken recently, it might be time for a bit of a

local3DToGlobal and Matrix3D shennanigans!

Fri, 17 Feb 2012 16:58:32 +0000

Just spent a few hours debugging this little delightful side effect of using local3DToGlobal on a DisplayObject that I’d set it’s matrix3D property to null (to remove the effect of blurry graphics after 2.5D rotations and z translations). Beware: using

Textfield scaling issue

Tue, 16 Aug 2011 12:55:37 +0000

Thought I’d post about this issue unless anyone else comes across something similar and needs a fix. On a recent site I worked on ( i’m scaling the content when the user goes into FullScreen mode to make use of

FullScreen Flash mask gotcha

Fri, 08 Jul 2011 09:46:42 +0000
