Animators are already asking about TOFA 2013, the Albino Blacksheep Tournament of Flash Artists. It's a comin'.
'90s Console Wars
The interesting thing about James Rolfe is he's the same as age myself, growing up in the same time period with the same level of Nintendo fanboyism.
He's brave enough to show embarrassing video of himself as a child, and then revisists his own views with a fair and accurate comparison 20 years later.
It will probably be best if this site is updated with one file per day than a bigger update with changes on the other pages most regulars won't notice. Anyways, here's Jordan's animation based on an Amazon review.
The following is a much larger download than most animations because it is made with other tools and reimported into Flash. I cannot complain because it is from Jesse Jones,
the creator of Forehead Shavecut.
So you may be wondering what has been happening on ABS without updates for so long. Long story short, everything on the main server crashed - hard drive failure.
99% of things were back later that same day because of backups and our amazing hosting, but it was a full-day process when dealing with over 13 years of files. There are some missing images from over a decade ago that I'll have to search some old CD-ROMs for.
In the meantime, improvements have been made to the mobile version of this site and we are gearing up for TOFA.
So if you are an animator that wants some easy prize money, email me.
I'll be taking on a few more Web development clients (as I seem always do this time of year when TOFA is coming up), so if you are unhappy with your current site and want some Valid HTML5, Fancy CSS3 designs, and all the benefits of the modern Web, make your case.
I read it's not good to make promises, so I'll just say that I'll do my best to update again this week.
