Somehow this feels like I'm posting a web virus...

Err... umm.... sheez rc, isn't there enough bad Flash on the web already? Do we really need to help inform hordes of corporate PowerPoint drones how to join in the fray? I shudder to think...

Not quite a virus, but awfully close. Shame! ;)

How accurately does it render the blue background? :)

Seriously, I had to wrestle with my conscience quite a while over this post. If I see one more twirling chart or table on a blue background, I'm going to throw up. But then I realized Hey! It's Flash, no one is going to find it on the web anyway.

I've been lucky... I've only seen 1 PowerPoint presentation in my life, and the author had the sense to cover 2/3 of the background with promotional photos. There was very little blue to be seen. And the 'content' was mostly text... minimal charts & graphs.

If I start seeing those things all over the web though, I'm holding RC personally responsible. ;)
