I think he handled it well (at least, being more entertaining than most Channel 4 anchors... though when you're up against Justin Lee-Collins and Jimmy Carr that doesn't speak volumes)
I like Jimmy Carr :/ He has 4 dvds and it's all original material, which is nice when you look at other comedians and see 3 dvds and it's all the same material, in a different order (peter kay, stand up and take a bow). He's good on 8 out of 10 cats because he has good guests and he doesn't try to make himself bigger than he is, he just enjoys the other comedians jokes, which is good.

Anyone else done any flash teaching? I've helped my mum out before at her old school and I helped run some workshops at an animation festival a couple years ago.
No. In high school + college they did small sections with flash and I pretty much took the load off the teacher by answering everyone's questions, since both those teachers knew shit all about flash. I was terrible at Flash then, but oh well :p The only thing I can offer to someone learning flash is knowledge of actionscript and the flash environment, actually using the thing effectively is probably a whole other ball game.

1. Stop bring up these attacks here, there's threads in general where it's being discussed.
I know this is going against the line I'm quoting, but anyway.. that post (that you linked to by absent) is a bit OTT. When he talks about bruteforcing he basically says your password must be a random combination of different case characters and numbers, but that's silly.. if my password was, for example, cupoftea2004, the likelihood of a bruteforce program guessing that is.. incredibly low. He says "if your password is penis, you will get hacked. if your password is p3n15, you will get hacked". He's just spreading the fear! The idea of his post was to calm people the fuck down! Gah. Sorry :P

I dream of retiring rich from flash games and holding free seminars at the local community center on how to animate and program flash games.

I'd like to make money with Flash. But I'd like to educate at an academic level.
I wouldn't mind that either. Teaching at high school would be shit, because those kids don't want to learn. Teaching at college would be also shit, because college is just a gateway to University. I'd like to teach at University, but not as a career.. more like, if I was successful in my field then it would be nice to be able to teach. To pass on my experience. I think that's quite a common thing, especially amongst physicists >_>
And the more I look into monetising Flash outside of hock-phlegm-advertising the more problems I see. Cheat Engine, barriers to entry for the pay-to-purchase games, decompiling, revenue splits, proper payment models, server side data hosting... just far too much that can go wrong...
Stop being such a revolutionist and stick to our conventioonnnsss. Get the (metaphorical) game sponsored like everyone else, and enjoy your lump sum of cash >: P If you want to revolutionise the flash game industry, then draw up a business plan and talk to your local bank ;) You'd have to destroy the competition and you'd be pissing a lot of people off though by making most of the internets 'proper' games shareware. Shareware was never popular with 'proper' games, I can't see people taking to it on flash games especially since they're available universally over the webs.
