    Hey Eduardo,

    I have been to your blog a few times, good stuff. My only tip would be to add MouseLeave events to all your flash movies so they only run or tick as the user is over it. Nice stuff there.

    Hi Ryan,
    I came across your blog looking for potential uses for Degrafa, a declarative graphics framework for Flex. I invite you to check it out at http://www.degrafa.com. Great blog!

  9. drawk Says:

    Thanks Juan I had not seen that before Degrafa looks really useful. I will give it a spin and report in if it is gold. So far it looks great!

    Great blog, one of my key sources for current AS related news. However I have one major gripe; ALIASED FONTS! They make reading terribly painful and frustrating.
