... sounds like a song lyric, doesn't it?

I used to be a total Flash whiz - I even had some of my work featured on a Macromedia-sponsored Flash demo disc "back in the day". But it's been a really long time since I did anything in Flash; the last version I used was MX, and now I've installed a trial version of CS3. It is NOT like riding a bike. I've been immersed in doing everything with DHTML and AJAX, now this is... hmm. How do I do that thing where the Movie clip loads that stuff from the thing... how do I load an external XML file? Oooh, Actionscript... my first love. we've both grown, and now I hardly know you.

Hard to tell if you're asking a question, was waiting for other responses. :-)

The good news is, your old actionScript will still work, but to make the best use of what's available in Flash, you have to pull the toys out of the attic and get your wings. :-)
