Linux User: Switch to Linux.
Windows User: Isn't it a bit extreme to change my operating system because of the error in Photoshop? All I want to know is how to fix the error.
Linux User: Look, I'm going to give it to you straight. Microsoft are terrible when it comes to security. For your own sake, switch to Linux so you don't get infected by viruses or trojans.
Windows User: But I never open any unwanted email attachments, and besides I have a virus scanner which I update daily plus a firewall. Do I really need to use Linux?

beh..how i make flashbeh..how i make flash9 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
All spelling mistakes are copyrighted by meeeee, okay they aren't.. flash by macromedia and all respective companies and websites are named are owned by themselves. Yay. If you look for anything specific, hold control and F, or command and F on a Mac I believe, and look for the keyword there.
So let the headache begin ^^:
How to get Flash:
There are 4 ways:
A)Buy it at macromedia.com, the official way. it's expensive tough.
B)Go to shareware websites, like www.download.com, and get the trial version, so you can try for a month. You probably give up on flash after that time anyway.
C)Finding a bootleg version, which is illegal, so i won't discuss it to save me from trouble
D)finding a person who owns Flash, and can send it to you with msn/aim, but the file is huge mind you. And this is also illegal I think.. O_o;
This tutorial is based for Flash mx, the other versions might have their tools in a diffrent place, so you have to look for them then X__X

Chapter 4: Wish Fulfillment
I got up and looked at the small little dragon as it shook the remains of the shattered eggshell of itself. I backed up and stepped on an old dry leaf. The dragon instantly whipped around and faced me. Our eyes locked. I wanted to turn and run, but something in the way those eyes stared at me held me firmly in place. Without warning, the dragon leaped onto me with such force that I fell over backwards. To my amazement, it did not hurt me, but began licking my face all over. Once I was thoroughly covered in drool, it got off and let me up. Not knowing what to do, I just stood there looking at the dragon confused. It saw this, and its little head dropped, a look of sheer sadness upon its face.
You dont remember me, do you?
I was confused. I liked dragons a lot, but never did I imagine seeing one up close, and this one was a little too real for comfor

Flare awoke the next morning on his living room floor to hear voices talking over him. They werent his parents, but someone elses, and there were a lot of them. He cautiously opened one eye a crack, and instantly shut it. He was completely surrounded by animals, and not just his house pets, but wild ones as well. Flare wondered why his dogs hadnt protected him whats more the voices seemed to be coming from the animals. Josie, the most faithful of his dogs, was lying on the floor beside him. A stag was talking to her, and apparently the conversation was about him.

On a girl you consider a friend.
You wished to be together,
Until the very end.
Finally the time came
And the dream came true.
You and her expressed your feelings,
And there was something new.
You laid for an hour,
Getting closer inch by inch.
Your hands brushing together,
And finally she clinched.
For the next few hours,
You and her would flirt.
She was expressing great emotions,
You knew you wouldn't get hurt.
Holding hands, head to head,
Laughing for a while.
Your heart was beating fast,
Faster than the Nile.
Although it was very awkward,
Something you never expected.
You and her both
Enjoyed every second.
Finally you arrived,
And were bound to go home satisfied.
Then the time came,
And you had to say goodbye.
The very next day,
The mood was very weird.
You walked up to greet her.
You noticed as you neared,
Something wasn't right,A feeling you had feared.
She walked away speechless
As your eyes began to tear.
You both remained silent,
For the rest of the day.

I didn't bother going to school on Friday, and I didn't go to Mr Hedge's house on that day either nor Saturday and I wasn't planning to go today which was Sunday. It's because I was just so irritated with him now and also just because I just couldn't face him right now, now after what I shouted out and how he .how he rejected me .
I had barley left my room either, I just stayed in my room all day and everyday so far, just reading, going on my computer and watching TV, regardless of how much a nice day it was. My mom stepped into my room and sighed.

Chapter 2: Destined for Greatness
Fare was not your average 14 year old boy. No matter what he did, no one would accept him for who he was. Sure, you could blame it on the fact that he was a four-eyed brace-face looser who did nothing but watch T.V., surf the web, and play video games. But the real problem lied deeper than that. The real problem was his personality. He was what most people would call "immature". Although he was 14 and in fact was mature, he had a deep, burning, passionate obsession, Dragons. Of course everyone teased him about it, but he didn't mind. He was more of a loner himself and liked his space. If he could he would much rather hang out with his pets and talk to them instead. He always felt so awkward in large groups of people, but seeemed to feel right at home with animals.

"Oh dear sonic are you alright? You're crying, I didn't bump into you that hard did i?" she asked worriedly.

"What happened? Did you hurt yourself? You've got a skateboard did you fall off it?"
I blinked. She was so caring, and worried about me. But why? I have hardly had any contact with her and hate her soul and yet she wants to help me out.
