An interlude

OK, this isn't about poker specifically. But it features cards, and it's pretty cool. So there.

This better be good. It is taking a looooong time to load. Whenever a load screen says "Please be patient." it loses points with me before even seeing anything.

Didn't realized that it did anything until I scrolled down the page to see the play bar which wasn't moving. I moved it manually and it would stutter while it played then stop. When it was running it was impressive in a "holy crap someone had way too much time on their hands" kind of way. Perhaps Flash's next big feature could be streaming vector content...though I have no idea if their file architecture could even support such a notion.

Thanks for the link!

That's too bad it was stuttering for you. Weird. Ran smoothly on my machine.

As a side rant, I don't mind Flash upgrading their authoring tools all the time but it would be really convenient if their rendering engine were robust enough that Flash files were more backwards compatible.

Flash is an artists tool, it makes really pretty results, but it's an absolute cast iron bitch to work with.
