Don't thank me, than the Ubergeek guy.  He is asking for donations on his site.

OK, somebody please tell this dumbass what tools might have been used to create this.

He uses Macromedia Flash. (It's in the interview article.  Which is linked above.)

Don't you have to have the Flash client installed for this stuff to work?  I don't (famous last words) ...

Chances are that you have it installed.

Thanks for the link, Dave.

I'm running XP, so I guess I must have the Flash client as part of my browser.  Fair enough, I can run the Switch To Linux stuff no problemo.

The strange thing is that I run across a few sites constantly that always prompt me to download "Macromedia Flash Player".  I have always declined.
