Name: Alessandro Crugnola
What I am in few words: a computer lover!

I started playing with computer using Flash Actionscript and PHP, more or less in 2000. I currently use actionscript as my primary language, but during these years I started studying other languages.
I had experiences with Python, C# and Java.

    Hi, I made a small correction to Flash Tracer, enabling it to Firefox 5 and fixing a problem where it prevented the log from being cleared (fbtracer.js, line 316, set TraceOutputBuffered to ZERO). Would you please consider updating your plugin, or at least allow me to upload it to firefox addons giving you the credits for the plugin? Thanks

    • Thanks! I will update the plugin asap including your credits.
      About uploading to the Firefox addons directory I’d like to mantain the plugin here, I had too many problems using official mozilla addon site..

        Alright, thank you.

    I have 2 questions regarding to Image zoom and scrolling.

    How can I use “wrap_content” for hight and width of ImageViewTouch?
    How can I avoid the automaticly scale down of the image?

    Ciao Alessandro, sto scrivendo un piccolo articolo sulla Flash Platform. Volevo conferma che tu non hai alla base studi scolastici/universitari di tipo tecnico-informatico. Esattamente all’università degli studi di perugia cosa studiavi?

    Hi Alessandro, I’m writing a small article about Flash Platform, about designer getting developers. I wanted a confirmation about your student’s career. That you had no technical background before starting ActionScript development

    i’m trying to use your AS3 Serializer class but i’m having trouble using it. When i’m compiling the fla (using the example you provided for AS3), it throws this kind of error:
    ”1004: Namespace was not found or is not a compile-time constant.’ and its source is: ‘mx_internal static var c:uint;’ and the other one is: ‘use namespace mx_internal;’

    am i missing something?

    • Zen

      By the way, im using Flash CS4 to do this.

    Sorry to post a tech question here but I can’t find a better way to reach you!

    I am using your AS2 image capture technique described in this article: http://www.sephiroth.it/tutorials/flashPHP/print_screen/index.php

    It has worked great for me in the past, but for some reason in my most recent project, after having the user upload an image of their own earlier in the process, the data sent to pixels.php is arriving completely blank! instead of color values, it is receiving “,,,,,,,,,,”. The very strange part of this is that if the user does upload their own image, the rest of the screen is captured and uploaded just fine. When they do upload their own image, the resulting jpg is the correct dimensions, but each pixel is white.

    Can you think of any reason for this? I’m at a loss! Let me know if you would like my contact info to continue the conversation, and how best to deliver that to you.

    I recently followed your tutorial for the Flash Form using PHP. I attempted to input your method into my flash website and had no success. I then attempted to use the downloaded source file folder as my root folder for Dreamweaver, eliminating the entire website besides the simple form, again no success. Yes, I did replace the code information with my domain website address. I’m using Flash CS5. Am I missing something or not doing something properly? Any input would help, thanks!

    Hey Alessandro,
    Is there anyway to use the purePDF with a commercial product?

  • Fabrizio

    Salve Alessandro, c’è modo per contattarti direttamente? Se vuoi ti mando la mia mail.

    Hi Alessandro,

    searching for gettext, I stumbled across your library. I did not see any mention of plural in the docs. Is it just sitting in the code, waiting to be discovered, or what effort would be needed to implement it

    Hi Alessandro,
    Image zoom example is very good. We are planning to use in our project. Before that I just want to know is there any Licensing associated with this. If so can you give some details on this.


  • Kkawai2

    What font did you use in your Simple Note app. I want to use it in my app too. By the way, hot white chicks in your photos 🙂

  • shruti

    Hi Alessandro,
    I liked your TreeCheckBox project and was hoping to use it in my project. Could you tell if there is any Licensing associated? If there is then can you please provide any information.
