Smoke and Mirrors #2

Well, there are certain advantages to being at the business end of a Web design course. For one thing, I get to understand the mysteries (or at least the basics) of software like Flash. My revamped blog header up there is a fine example.

Now, the next step is to create a web site ‘tour guide’ – a bit like that annoying ‘office assistant’ paperclip thing that pops its head up when you’re using Word or Excel (or any other MS office document for that matter).

My choice for an animated tour guide (on my homepage): the hollow-eyed, cat-strangling harlequin, the Moonlight Man.

Could be tricky. Or freaky. Whichever comes first.
