Ryan, who’s a designer where I’m currently working made an icon from a pic taken of me at Spark Europe.
For those of you who are absolutely out of your minds you can download it from the links below.
This year we’ll be meeting up at The Elbow Room in Islington.
They have food, drink, music, pool etc. so it should be fun. Come down and have a chat and a drink before the New Year.
I felt a little sad when I first found out that Macromedia would be aquired by Adobe back in April. I’d like to thank all who have worked at MM over the years and built the products that give me a job.
I’m also really looking forward to what Adobe can do with the great set of products they’ve got their hands on with the acquisition is complete. Fantastic things to come!

No more do you have to have fonts in your library you can embed them directly from the folder where they reside using the [Embed] in your ActionScript Project.
You supply the path to the font in the ‘source’ param and then store a name to be referenced to access the font in ‘fontFamily’. You also need to declare a variable of type String or Class for the [Embed] to be assigned to, although you don’t need to reference it in your code.
To access the embeded font you use the String you assigned to the var ‘fontFamily’
