Another awesome part of the app is creating a "Village" where you have instant access using your own contacts to in a way you may never have thought of before.
Are you having a heart attack because you didn't order flowers a week ago? Well calm your beating heart and give your Loved one a heart attack instead. Just fill in your name and your loved ones name below and from your printer will come many Valentines Hearts that you can cut out and put on your love's car walls, mirrors, house, etc... I suggest putting red, pink or bright pink paper into your printer but white will do. Each Valentines heart comes out with a unique saying.
Flash application that prints multiple Valentines hearts, each with a personalized Valentines saying. Create your own valentines. Give your love a heart attack(the good way).
Every year I am an avid reoslution maker and keeper. I love to set golas and achieve them. It all started in High School when I made a resolution with my best friend and cousin Vaughn Jensen to drink no soda for the entire year. That was the first time that I set (and kept) a new years resolution.
I have many resolutions but I won't list them all here. The ones I will list relate to this blog and to my life as Flash professional.
So here are my New Years Resolutions in no particular order:
Post every ActionScript Error that Flash/Fex will ever produce.
Speak on Flash/ Flex/ ActionScript at 3 conferences this year (at least 1 major)
Reply to all valid blog comments within 24 hours.
Post a Flash tutorial at least once a month (12+ total).
Organize all posts into the "Grand Poobah" list of all AS3 errors.
Create an AIR app that contains all the errors from my blog.
Get my training published on RMI and Lynda.
Win one major award for a Flash project that I complete.
Get ACE re-certified in Flash CS4, Flash Lite and Flex
All right you Flashers. Stop banging your heads because of the latest Flash Error and go spend a little time with Matt Maxwell. Matt understands your pain and even sings about it. Once you hear Matt's lucid tomes you will be blown away at how well he understands your pain.

Well my Beautiful wife Nicole and I found out that we are having a girl and here are some pictures of the pretty princess. I think she has my eyes and Nicole's lips. It is a great day. Nicole is doing well and is still very skinny for being pregnant. The other kids were very surprised because they all thought it was going to be a girl. All except for the other girl in our family. The due date is October 30th so we are looking for appropriate names. Any suggestions on names please comment here on my blog.
So I noticed that a lot of people are looking for my former students and Flash geniuses Jared Kroff and Adam DeVincent. Through my good friend Gordon Peterson I found that Jared Kroff and Adam DeVincent are now with a company called Red Interactive Agency. According to Gordon Funktion12 was acquired or something by this agency after sweeping the FITC Awards. Whatever they payed for www.Funktion12.com they got a good deal. Jared and Adam are amazing.
So to contact them you can call or mail the Salt Lake city office of Red Interactive Agency at:
230 S. 500 W.
Salt Lake City, UT 84101
So for all you googlers that are looking for Jared Kroff and Adam Devincent this may help. If nothing else you should check out Red Interactive Agency it just won the FWA Site of the Month and is amazing.
The original version was created for the LDS Church and can be viewed at www.lds.org/music. They were the first to believe that with technology and music combined we can bless many lives. The music player for the church has touched many lives around the world. There were many prayers and miracles from God that happened along the way to make this original version happen.
The commerical version owes many thanks to Morgan, Brooke, Blake and Shannon. They believed in us. Because of them it was possible for the player to be developed in a commerical way using and refining the indusrty standard musicXML created by Michael Goode and have the musical and Flash genius of Robert Penner to help in creating an amazing application that is light and versatile. It also owes many thanks to the amazing people at CCLI. Howard and Deryk, Gary, Pete, and everyone else.
I'm sure I will forget many people but here is a list of key contributors to the project over the years.
