That's it?

Yes, that's it. You just deciphered a hefty 72 lines of code using only your wits and willpower. That's right, you, who always said "I don't understand coding, I think I'm thickheaded". Now go into your bathroom, look at yourself in the mirror, and smile. Now look at your watch. It's 4 AM.

Unbeknownst to you, you just learned the fundamental elements of highly complex interactivity. You now know 6 of the 7 clip events, how to manipulate properties, custom functions, loading variables, and how to create un-button buttons. Next thing you'll know, you'll change your username to Flashguru2 on the boards.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
