Flash 9 Updates

Wednesday, November 15th, 2006

At work we create a number of applications based on Flash. A month or so ago our users began upgrading to Flash 9 and seeing intermittent crashes. This was caused by an apparent bug in the Flash 9 player on all platforms (Linux, Mac, Windows). We reported this a number of times but Adobe didn’t really respond. After some google searching I managed to track down the Product Managers for the Flash Player product. They later put me in touch with the QA team who indicates theyve release this week to resolve a number of bugs.

This new release seems to resolve all but one of the bugs we had reported. So if you’re noticing flash stability issues you may wish to upgrade. Unfortunately, the update won’t be available on Linux for a while as its still in beta 🙁

May 1st / Labor Day == 3 day weekend

Monday, May 1st, 2006

May 1st is “Dia Del Trabajador” (Labor Day) here in Argentina. Apparently, its Labor day in most of the world, with the exception of North America (US / Canada). Everyone in Argentina has the day off, Ukraine has 2 days.

Wikipedia has today listed as “May Day” or “International Workers Day”.

According the article the US celebrates Labor Day in September because “May Day” had connections to communists and their philosophies.

Anyways, so its a 3 day weekend for me here in .AR. After years of working both US holidays because my coworkers were in .AR / .CA and .UA, and .AR holidays, because many of our customers are in the US, I finally put my foot down and told work to pick a holiday calendar. Working 365 is a pain in the ass.

Todays plans:
* Maru’s family came over to the new apartment for lunch.
* Veging out watching downloaded TV and catching up on RSS feeds.
