hey GoatMaster...I'm in the process of taking a beginning flash course over the summer semester. I'd hope to use flash to make my own front end...I'm glad to see there is someone else that's interested.
As I am still a n00b when it comes to flash, I'm not sure I could be all that much help, but I'd be interested in contributing to your project. Right now, I'm not too sure where to start. I've got some programming experience (ie. a little vb and java). If I can be any help, just let me know.
