See that blank area at the bottom, next to "Quick Tour" and "Contribute Tutorial"? Yeah. That shows the "trying to load Flash" spinner for a few seconds, then the application goes off into StupidFlashAteMyApp Land.
GOD, I WISH I HAD FLASH ON MY iPHONE, SO IT COULD BE RENDERED USELESS ON A REGULAR BASIS TOO!
As soon as I was able to move fast enough to click the "Don't show again" checkbox and cleanly quit the application, lo, Contribute starts cleanly. Great job showing us how hard Flash rocks Adobe, GREAT job.
Oh, and when I tried to connect it to this site? Of course, it sat and spun for a few, then crashed. Fuckit, I'm done. Any product that cannot successfully launch without assistance, and then cannot cleanly perform one of its most basic duties does not need to ever be used again.
MarsEdit, you rule. Adobe Contribute, you suck.
