The Egyptian Flash Certification Explosion
In the process of refining the agent that collects and parses existing page data I can across an interesting bit of information: Egypt has 181 Flash MX Designer certifications, 157 of which seem to have been achieved on 30 June or 1 July 2003. Egypt has no other Macromedia certifications apart from Flash MX Designer.

RIA Example App - Server Image File Browser
I've been busy lately building a sample RIA for a Macromedia Australia sponsored competition, a Flash browser that allows you to view directories and their contents on the server.
