  1. Again!!!
    Great idea for an app, but again Flash Forms hinder the greatness. Everytime I try to view a Flash Form it gets stuck at 40% loading and just sits there. Is there anyone out there that knows how to solve this problem?
    Just for the record I’m using FireFox 1.5 BEAT 1 and Flash BETA 8.

  3. Tony,
    Thanks for the feedback.
    I’m not sure why it isn’t working for you. I did much of my development work using FF 1.5 alpha 2 and then beta 1 using the flash player 8 beta. (some using IE and FP 7) In fact, I just tested the site using FF 1.5 beta and the full release of FP8 and it worked fine for me. You may want to do a full uninstall of Firefox and a reinstall of it and the player. You shouldn’t loose your FF settings.
    I originally built the site using pure html forms with almost no layout. I then converted the forms over to flashforms since it looked better and I needed the practice. If you want me to manually enter the data into the system for you and send you the results, pass me an email at ryan@kcfusion.org with your phone number.
    So far I am happy with the number of users (20+ registered). I am a bit annoyed by the 5 people who put in blatantly false information, what disturbs me is how little information people are submitting. I spent a lot of time adding fields for personal interests, are you bringing a notebook computer, etc. so that people would have a way to pick a roommate they would be compatible with. Sadly, most aren’t even submitting their first name!
    Oh well, so far a number of people have found a roommate so it has been worthwhile.

  4. Love the concept.. Im surprised there isnt some kind of national website that matches people up with roommates for ANY kind of event – show – concert – whatever.. maybe a good idea for a site – I could think of a ton of "spin-off" features that would be great..
    I did notice that this app adds your name to the database before you’ve even finished filling out your profile / preferences.. maybe it could wait till the end?

  5. Those five people probably wanted to see, just your application. Maybe you should create a guest account? I wanted to see it as well … but in the end didn’t bother registering with dumby information.
