    I for one will be taking advantage of your simple flash website and image gallery tutorials – with sincere thanks.

    Regarding your fav website, K11, the site is guilty of what I have come to disdain about flash websites. Way too much time is taken up by the endless series of transitions between content. And then, even the content is hard to get at. This may all be nice to gander at the first time, but you won’t see me returning to the site again. Conclusion: Pretty but a waste of time.
