Its like stepping into a time machine for me, man i have some awesome memories of my flash days, I even miss macromedia and its lingo "language" lol.
I remember when i first started learning html, there were no authoring programs, just notepad and LOTS of hours of coding. I got into it because i wanted to make a website for my band. Then i remember when dreamweaver came out, total game changer, and that was the standard for making and developing websites. Then flash hit, and it was like you could make an interactive movie for your website, it was truly groundbreaking.
Call me crazy, but i miss frames. Was nice to have a "static" part of a website and only have the content that needed to change, change.
Like you guys mentioned, now it just seems like the same regurgitated wordpress websites, or any other cms, all with the same "ingredients", just in different layouts. Us developers have gotten lazy and substituted creativity with efficiency and ease.
I just keep telling myself this is only a fad, and the days of "cms" will pass and something else will emerge. Crossing fingers!!!
Anyway, i found this cool flash site...
