[FYI] Mesh on MX

Ok, this is for me to search for, when I am stuck on Flash (and other Macromedia products), and get some handy tips and news - mesh on mx. Many, many weblogs...

Hmm, the mains ones would be:
- Macromedia Flash Developer Center
- Macromedia Flash Developer Center : 3D/Animation Articles
- ActionScript for Flash MX: The Definitive Guide : Events and events handling

And last but not least... they added search plugins for firefox, yay! Very handy indeed! mesh on mx - FireFox Flash and Macromedia Search Plugins

Some design links I found at...

... ( many useful things to be found at RSS feeds available on all the contributers.
Text style sampler is rather nifty to try out the fonts on the page. It's all dynamic. You can try out the fonts size, the widths...type.
Anyway you want 3 column layout in CSS... Well as many as the options allow to preview. But back up a level and NN4-compatible XHTML/CSS 3 column layouts can be browsed.

Just for my self-reference... ^.^

Good Logos Site

Have a look and judge for yourself...GoodLogo!com - Top 250 - Category: Computers (1-5)
I like this site, as it shows general day-to-day logs, and shows the design cases for some of these. You can even submit a logo you like and see how it will get rated... Hmm, will I send in the new Java logo? Can't seem to find a decent one online, although, it does not look as nice the the old logo. (And what is Christina Aguilera doing promoting mobility and Java???)
Reg will be picking it up the new logo soon, I'll be on the look out...
