Flash upgrade

I just bought the upgrade to Flash 11 AKA Flash CS5, and downloaded it and installed it.

Adobe shuuure wants me to install the Google browser toolbar, you know that? What with various downloads (the upgrade, patches, and so on) I had to tell the installer three times that I didn't want the damned thing, even though it was free (and "could easily be uninstalled later" as I was assured).

There are a lot of people out there using it, but I don't want anything to do with it.

1 Huh.  I installed the CS5 Design Suite recently and it didn't try anything like that.

The main upgrade didn't do that, and neither did the humongous patch job when I told it to check for updates.

But I also wanted to see if there was a new version of the Flash runtime, and that's the thing that kept nagging me to install the Google command bar.

By the way, they seem to have cleaned up a bunch of stuff that really caused me trouble. Flash 10 kept locking up on me, or outright dying. Sometimes saving an FLA file would take minutes -- and this is not a slow computer. Those same files seem to save really fast with Flash 11, at least based on this morning's efforts.

I assume there are new features, too, but I doubt I'll even bother to see what they are. I got the upgrade because I hoped for bug fixes, and they do seem to have done that.

3 Oh yeah, the Flash runtime installer is an evil piece of crap.  We hates it.

4 All of a sudden, the rotation picture is showing in the top page (instead of the "no bandwidth theft" sign). Is that because of the new upgrades?

It's always shown up there, unless you use a bogus URL to access this site.

Access to the top rotation picture is controlled by .htaccess here on my server, based on the referer. If you access this site as anything other than chizumatic.mee.nu then you'll get the bandwidth theft image.

For instance, if you use www.chizumatic.mee.nu it won't work.
