Yeah..... Well, I did not think that much of the site really. Also the
complete use of flash makes the site inaccessable, to people trying to
access the site with screne readers, and to people who use a text only
Also I did not really get the use of flash by the sites designer, as a
resault I did not even really get what the site was about.
Something about not clicking on links or some crap....
I think the idea could be good, but they haven't really implermented it
to good for the web. If you have flash disabled, as some people in this
group do, and in my case I don't have it in FireFox, it means you can't
even get to the site, a very bad design choice, considering how
interesting, but slightly vage the idea was.
