FlashDevelop, Flex and Balloons
Last year I realised that it was possible to build Flash games using free software - The free IDE FlashDevelop and the free Abobe Flex 3.3 SDK. I finished about 80% of a little flash game, re-using graphics from an old Acorn Archimedes game I wrote about 15 years ago.

In 1987, Acorn launched the Archimedes home computer. At the time, it was the fastest desktop computer in the world, and at the time, I was fortunate enough to have one to experiment with.
