"Welcome back to the fight. This time I know our side will win."
I got offered a job today using JSP. I havent touched this language at all so I was quite intrigued to see what it looked like. After a bit of reading it seems pretty easy to write although some areas appear much more bloated than C# i.e. theres alot of repeating code blocks. C# is still my 2nd favorite language after ActionScript but I reckon JSP could easily be my third!
Its a site where you upload an image with the font in it and it will do its best to tell you the name of the font. This is quite old now but I only just found out about it:

If you've been having trouble getting anything to appear when using the loadBitmap() function then chances are you've made a simple mistake. The documentation says to use the linkageId of a library object as the sole argument for this function i.e:
var myBitmap:BitmapData = BitmapData.loadMovie("libObjectId");
The key to using this function is that you have to attach an actual image object from the library; so say you've imported a jpg/png there, give this a linkageId and use that. Dont drop an instance of the image into a movieclip/graphic object and give that an Id. That would be the reason it didnt work. Be warned: you wont get an error message telling you it didnt work, your bitmap will just be blank.
