Digitalv, You're probably getting a lot more broken images than you deserve. What I mean is, you probably enjoyed a LOT of sites using flash before you disabled it, without even knowing they were using flash. Flash can provide better images faster. No, they don't have to blink. Flash can look like html while accessing databases. Flash can act like frames, only better. Flash can prevent the average scraper from viewing source, or downloading your site for his/her own use. Flash can do so many things besides blink, and blinking can be done in so many ways besides flash.
