Hope you meant that! :-)

*Horrible* preloading design philosophy! Who in Heaven's name wants
to sit there, twiddling their thumbs, waiting a full 100 seconds
(56k) watching nothing but *yet-another* damned thermometer bar, and
the word "LOADING" flashing?

(BTW, critiquing your thermometer bar: you have "30%" for both "20%
and "30%"; and, your 10% jumps are very unevenly timed -- one (20-30)
is only 3 seconds long, while another (50-60) takes 35 seconds.)

Provide your beloved audience something more entertaining, or they
won't stick around to view and appreciate all of your carefully
prepared work (the intro).

HTH,

Ken Sherwood, who despises thermometer bars, and deems them to be an
indication that the Flash designer is either just plain lazy or has
utter contempt for his audience. Or both.
