Here is some seriously technical links for advanced people (good reads for non flex users, but largely pointless for those without Flex).
A view under the hood of the cool new profiler from flex Surprise for Flash users: It is part of the player, not the Flex IDE!
How to roll your own preloader in Flex, but without the Flex framework
The trick to getting embedded SWF files in Flex to behave properly Something I actually wrote myself. Yes, it is a code dump, but it is also a step by step instruction in how to perform this specific activity. No, it does not explain why things is done the way they are. It is for serious people who can figure that out by themselves, once they see the code.
Each time someone abuses hittest, God kills a kitten. Please, learn real collision testing.
That "Stop Coding!" blog is looks like it'll be a REALLY good resource. Thanks for that, henke.
A while ago I had posted a thread intended to go here on Closures in AS3. I didn't post it here, but it's here:
At the time of posting, I thought they were more of a 'gee whiz' sort of thing, but I've actually found them very useful several times since then. They might take a minute to wrap your head around and may look a little weird at first, they can actually make your code look and read much more simply when appropraitely placed.
I'll probably write another quick one in a little while.
Requesting AS3: Sockets!
Can't find a good socket tutorial anywhere! They all either don't work or are way too complicated.

well I finally figured out how to make a plat former after like a week of pure coding, and you may say, but there are all ready as3 plat former tut's, but do theirs let you walk up and down hills, I think not.
but i haven't written a tut for it yet so tell me if you want one... :) heres an example, but don't get angry at me because the ground is yellow and he is drawn really shitily, the whole point is whats under the hood not above it :)
